Tie Hua Village (鐵花村)
1 July 2014
(Brent D. Scheihagen; arr. Electric Monk)
This is the first of four videos that were recorded back on July 1st of last year. Electric Monk performed its last two shows in Taidong (台東) and Dulan (都蘭) respectively. While we didn't get any video of the last show, we do have a complete sound recording. However, the show in Taidong at Tie Hua Village (鐵花村) was filmed on 3 different cameras thanks to 黃泓碩 (Huáng Hóng-shuò). I sent the film to my brother Dale, who works in video editing, in Texas; he edited three videos for us while a colleague, Michael Johnson, edited a fourth. We're grateful to all of those involved for the assistance, as well as the opportunity to perform at Tie Hua Village.
The show itself was a mixed bag and we didn't perform our best throughout the show, but these four songs came out very well, so we're happy to share them. The first is a song written by myself called "Nothing to Prove". Enjoy!
