Looking Around (remastered… and expanded!)

New year has begun! I have been busy with work and new projects and, with the few time I had, I did yet another “remaster”, this time with Looking Around, from the very first Yes LP. As we approach the first anniversary since our dear Peter Banks passed away, I took the opportunity to decorate the green screen in the memory of Peter.

I also discovered on my computer that I had kept a test video which I had recorded on the day before while I was still practicing. Strings are out of tune and camera loses focus but still I thought it would be interesting to show you how I was rehearsing.

Towards the end you will be able to see how I was beginning to experiment with very rudimentary graphic effects. I used a Yes cartoon designed by brazilian graphic artist Milton Trajano, which featured on The Ladder Tour program. Milton is in fact who suggested me that I should go and try to make a video clip of Chris’ basslines on YouTube, and helped me with the artwork of my early videos, like Parallels and A Venture.

Bass: Rickenbacker 4001CS

Strings: Warwick Red Label (45-105, stainless steel)

Preamp: Sansamp Bass Driver DI (BDDI)

Signal path: Bass→BDDI→PC
