Watch how well these guys performed together, despite never having been in the same room before this session... the vibe was pretty awesome and I do feel the production team succeeded in capturing it.
Needless to say, I'm quite pleased with the results. There's no virtuosity here... sound engineer Eric Dabdoub (Bofo Recordings), had to choose his way around quite a few takes... but there's an honest-to-God passion for music shared by each of the 17 people involved that makes this a session I'll not soon forget.
I hope you enjoy Missing every bit as much as we did.
If you've ever lost someone, as I had when I wrote the song, I'm sure you can relate.
"Doors get closed. Things go wrong.
And lives had no choice but to go on... since you've gone missing."
This blue rendition of a sad song was directed by Ruben G (Novvva Films), with footage shot by him, Melissa Maiz (MG Castillito Films), and Carlos G. Davila (Reverie Workshop). Special thanks to Bladinieres (Elevador) for his musical direction, Constanza Treviño for her image consultancy, and Eugenia Rodriguez for her art advice.
El Tiger Sessions:
Located in the picturesque neighborhood of Tampiquito, El Tiger is a rehearsal space run by the sexy guys from the band Husky. Enter the El Tiger Sessions production team, a hard-working and good-looking bunch if ever I saw one, and the stage is set for something like this to occur.
Do check out the other El Tiger Sessions. There's new videos coming out all the time and some of the featured artists are truly amazing.
