    Hello good people and music fellows.

    Here we come, we have a winner for the first episode of season 3 of Song Request! It's @edje the winner of this episode, with a song by Talk Talk : "Such A Shame". Congratulation on winning 10 Hive!

    It's a classic 80's song with really interesting lyrics, of course as usual I wanted to own the song as much as possible.

    The requester (@edje) asked for an acoustic version, it's great because I always had in mind something acoustic in my head.

    First, I spent 2 days just working on rewriting the song without losing its spirit. I feel that there is a very interesting duality in the song, the original music video transcribe this duality very well.
    I wanted to emphasize on the melancholia, with a simple guitar arpeggio and few backing vocals.
    My first version had a similar rhythmical structure as the original, I eventually drifted away from the original, stripped down a maximum of information, notes, and kept the essential.

    The production of the song took me another week, and working on the "music video" with the help of my wife @lionmom took another 2 days.

    We shot early in the morning (around 7am) to catch that moment before the first ray of light. My original thought was to film the song for an hour, and then edit the footage chronologically.

    The first footage did not work at all, as one of the phone (filming everything with smart phones) couldn't render the light properly, it's AI somehow made it blurry. My phone on the other hand went 4k and I was very happy with the result.

    The next challenge was to edit and synchronise, as the image was stuttering and my computer was struggling to preview. I would have probably finished the work much quicker with a better graphic card and CPU, but after few days, I managed to get something really cool.

    I've decided that I will also release a vlog video that will sum up these 2 last weeks of recording. We often expect success, money, the big pay on the blockchain, I personnaly feel that I have learnt very valuable lessons throughout the creative process, and I will apply it all for my own original material and shooting my own music video.

    I hope that you enjoy the result, don't forget to comment with a song for the Episode 2 of Song Request, and win a chance for your song to be picked and transformed!
