‘The Search Begins’ 1981 – recorded on a Tascam 144 Portastudio

PURE AUDIO AND VISUAL MAYHEM!

The good ol’ days of home recording in anolog . 4 track recording with early VHS video. It is meant to look like this and the intro is meant to be pure audio and visual noise!!!!

Peter Bright (AKA This Window) recorded the music on a Tascam 4 track cassette in 1981 and I crash edited the video between two VHS machines and a titler around 1982 or 83. Early home recording all round! It ‘won’ me three silk handkerchiefs at the Tokyo Film Festival (they even sent the VHS back!) and totally baffled the BBC on how it was made. Which was odd as it was the early intro to the BBC’s Doctor Who that is the inspiration! And yes, that is Gene Kelly at the beginning but the fine, thin figure with the long ponytail (OK, mullet) is me running in my Bristol living room. Blistering track from Peter and yes, it is meant to look like that. Only 2016 addition is a credit/copyright at the end and I sharpened the image a little.
