The Black Atlantic responded to the call to shoot with us while on the road in Wuhan. But it wasn’t until we turned up at Shanghai’s Hotel Indigo on the Bund that we found out they’d literally—and very kindly—jammed us into a schedule that guaranteed their Shanghai experience would be limited to the inside of a music venue and the fleeting views from a cab window.

在武汉巡演的时候,The Black Atlantic给我们回了电话,答应了我们的拍摄请求。但直到在上海外滩英迪格酒店见到他们,我们才意识到他们是真的感兴趣,并从他们本应马不停蹄的行程中挤出时间参与我们的拍摄。

Setup, shot and packed down in the space of an hour, Geert, Kim, Matthias and Simon took it all in their stride. Their tunes complimented the dusty treasues pilled-up around us at the hidden antique warehouse in the Pudong district.

一小时的准备、拍摄与现场剪辑, Geert, Kim, Matthias和Simon应对从容。在浦东的一处隐秘的古董仓库里,他们的音乐同周遭蒙着尘埃、堆砌如山的古董们,显出一种不谋而合的默契。

It was an intense experience that could only be guaged in hindsight, by the warm glow of having experienced something special, a milestone, and having someone else to share it with.

这一次相聚,事后细品,余韵绕梁,似是一座界碑,纪念那一天我们所共有的独到体验。

The Black Atlantic performed two tracks for us. Their brand new (unreleased) track “Of This Unfortunate Event (The Aftermath)” and “Fragile Meadow”.

The Black Atlantic 共为我们演奏了两首歌,分别是他们全新创作的曲目(尚未发行)”Of This Unfortunate Event (The Aftermath)” 和 “Fragile Meadow”。 乐队暗示说,第一首歌是为今年晚些时候即将发行的一部吸血鬼电影专门创作的。
