Beautiful Synthesizer Meeting


Analogue Heaven Northeast 2009
from stretta on Vimeo.

I was watching videos shot with the Canon 5D Mark II on Vimeo last night. The Canon 5D is in the new class of DSLR cameras that also shoot HD video. The innovation is that you can use all the different lenses available to SLRs. The footage you get from the 5D is the best I’ve ever seen outside of a movie theater. I must have missed the above video on Matrixsynth. It’s stunning and it really makes me want to put my synths on the floor and call my brother over to play for a while. When the red Macbeth M5 appears my jaw dropped!

“Once a year, analog synth enthusiasts gather to socialize and play rare and unusual musical instruments. I captured the May 2009 gathering with a Canon 5DmkII and a 50mm f/1.4 lens. I simply sat the Camera on a tripod, frame the shot as I would a photo, focused and captured. The music was produced using a Euro-format analog modular, controlled by Volta. Aside from the drums (MOTU BPM), everything was analog.” – stretta

I know many of you follow links from my Twitter and Facebook pages here and some of you are not musicians. Therefore I present you with a Squirrel shot with the Canon 5D M2:

Awe, ok now back to camera chat. I think it’s vital musicians all make their own music videos. I don’t practice what I preach but that’s going to change soon! To see more gorgeous footage check out Canon 5D footage on Vimeo: click here
