The Fringe Dwellers have an album out – “After Time” – and to promote it we’ve decided to make a video of one of my favourite songs from the CD, “Sunstruck”. Yesterday was supposed to be filming day, on my balcony in Hobart in the late morning sunshine.
Typically, the heavens opened and didn’t let up until late last night – though the irony of the situation wasn’t lost on me! 19mm of rain later, we finally got a window of sun this morning……. and I got to use my new toy.
About a month ago, I discovered this amazing little device that literally turns anything into a speaker. It’s very small and great fun to play around with. For the video shoot we needed some playback for me to synch with and groove to and the mini speaker on the wheelie bin was perfect! In the picture below you can see it on top of the bin, being fed signal from the laptop.
There’s a silly video promoting the product here – and I guarantee it sounds awesome on the toilet seat!
Meanwhile, we had a heap of fun. Made the neighbourhood wonder what the hell we were doing and entertained my neighbours and the plumber immensely.
I’ll be sure to post the final video here when Mal finishes editing. Take care everyone and have a brilliant weekend wherever you are!
