While at the Hurricane festival, I also recorded some videos with my digital camera. As these films go, their quality is pretty bad and the sound tends to be horrible. But perhaps they manage to give an impression nonetheless.
First, The Raconteurs playing about 30 seconds of Hands (click inside the image to start playing and hope that you have a sufficiently new version of QuickTime):
Then, Element Of Crime playing 90 seconds of Vier Stunden vor der Elbe:
And 20 seconds of Sigur Rós playing Hoppípolla:
All this topped off with a wonderful sequence of the end of the Sigur Rós gig:
Finally, the camera recording the wet and flashy outsides while I was driving home (which does look harmless on screen, though):
There are plenty of other films of a similarly good quality on the net. If you’re interested, look in the Hurricane forum for an overview of photos and videos and possibly some more. See Hard-Fi play Seven Nation Army, and be sure to watch arte on 27th of July.
i’m pretty sure this is so not allowed… but cool anyway!
Do you think the videos really are a problem? Everybody seems to be posting them on places like YouTube… I just thought it’s more convenient and less ugly around here.
But if this can get get me in trouble, I’ll remove them as I’m not interested in feeding some rabid lawyer.
