"Shaking Through" is a documentary series "about the birth of a song," in which 10 independent musicians per year are presented with a challenge: "Record one song in two days. First take to final mix. No extensions. No safety net."
This edition (2/27/2013 – Vol. 4, Episode 2) features Helado Negro, aka Roberto Lange.
Boing Boing pal Mikael Jorgensen of Wilco says,
Roberto and I were invited to join forces and equipment with the good people of Weathervane Music at Miner Street Studios in Philadelphia last fall to write, record and mix a song in two days and shoot the whole thing in HD for the video series Shaking Through. I'm super excited to be able to share this remarkable experience with you.
