MAMBO IN MIAMI
1997. Music video.
Music: Cal Tjader, “Mambo in Miami”.
Aprox. 3 min.
It consists on the exercise of producing a once-in-a-lifetime music video using in-camera editing by using only the Rec/Stop button while listening through headphones to the song playing at the time I recorded the image. The person in the image is someone running on the track of José Martí Park in Havana. I am zooming in from a remote building. The cuts in the image are an attempt to reproduce the music changes. In the end, the person keeps running towards a point where my camera is blocked, which produces an accidental fade-out. Everything recorded at that moment is the final video.
