In this video I am playing a Taylor 455 12 string using the edge of a cardboard box. The guitar is detuned a full step. The background is a Raagini processed through the "Bullhorn" effect in GarageBand. The Raagini track is available here.
The video was shot with an iPad Air using a Tascam iM2 stereo condenser microphone. I am using "2" PBL VL-1000 SOFTBOXES (80cm x 80cm) for lighting.
One day my son was editing a video in iMovie with a Black Eyed Peas soundtrack. I started playing my tablas along with the track and thought that it was an interesting mash up of styles/genres. Here is the video I shot about a week later.
The slideshow was produced using iMovie '11. The photos were taken with a Canon PowerShot SD 1400 IS Digital Camera. I used the PS Express app on an iPad for editing and adding effects to the photos. The audio track is from a CD that I recorded entitled "The Best of Mick Dennis-2007". A remastered version of this track is available here - "Pink Floyd" type excursion

Quote of the Day
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. -from "A Kick in the Seat of the Pants"
