Episode 4 - THE VISITORS (1:22)
I paid half of my budget and spent 9 days to get permission to film in that place.
Imagine: old Turkish baths, rays of sun coming through the ceiling holes; a beautiful place to record music. Now, picture an altar with 4 musicians seated on it. Panos, our sound technician, was trying to capture the perfect sound.
However, we didn’t have much time, and it was our last day on the island.
- Still no good, he said.
- Let's go one more time.
Suddenly, behind Panos, a large group of people started approaching. Panos was blocking their only way in.
- Oh great. Tourists.
- We’ve rented the place, man, we gotta keep going, said Panos.
- Let them in.
Soon we were surrounded by delighted tourists filming us.
Heh. They loved it. After 3 hours, that was the first good recording.
For some reason, I always proudly show this video to friends. It took me 1.5 years to really find out why.
