Makeshift music video

Here’s a new video with our quartet Makeshift:

Our partner and percussionist Scott Rubox Pausal did the camera work. I worked on it over 4 weekends, and in the process taught myself Adobe Premiere elements.

The song Bye Bye Blues was written in 1930 and was a hit for Les Paul and Mary Ford in 1952.

Some tech notes:

Audio recorded on a Zoom H1 2-track digital recorder

Audio equalized. reverbed and mastered in Audacity opensource freeware. Final audio cut is a combination of two takes. The audio track is available for download at

Video shot with Panasonic DMC LX5 in SD widescreen.  Nice wide angle on this camera – 24mm equiv.

Video edited with Adobe Premiere Elements 8.0.
