Take away show - Piers Faccini

music / june 25th / 11:24 PM


Spending so much time on computer, it helps to listen to music, it inspires...

Another important things in music is when you discover it associated to images... The importance of promo videos is not to prove anymore... But these guyes found even better...

Take away show are based on a simple concept : "they invite an artist or a band to play in the streets, in a bar, a park, or even in a flat or in an elevator, and they film the whole session. Of course, what makes the beauty of it is all the little incidents, hesitations, and crazy stuff happening unexpectingly. Besides, we do not edit the videos so they look perfectly flawless, instead we keep the raw sound of the surroundings. Their goal is to try and capture instants, film the music just like it happens, without preparation, without tricks. Spontaneity is the keyword."

And it works amazingly... There are pure moment of music and creativity in these... Just like behind on the beach around a fire and one guy have a guitare... For each artist, they explain the conditions of the shooting, always amazing stories...

I will present the ones I like the most from these shows, from time to time... Hope you like them and it will let your discover new bands... This week Piers Faccini, who did several take away show... The first 2 videos with Camille are... wow !
