Perhaps Contraption’s magical summer of music

September 2012

Over the summer, I played around with a GoPro camera, attaching it to various instruments and pieces of scenery, as well as using it handheld. It’s a versatile piece of kit, very portable and a good little get-out-jail card for larger productions too (the windscreen mount is perfect for clamping to the side of a piano for a great view of keyboard and pianist). At the end of the summer I had a mountain of footage from various Perhaps Contraption gigs, and sifted through it to put together a retrospective. This was also my first play with FCPX, which I actually found incredibly quick for putting promos like this together.
