This music video has been floating around the internet primarily due to the fact that the featured instrument, the hang, is a fairly recent musical creation. Invented in the year 2000 in Switzerland, this video piece showcases not only the sound, but a very clear example of a close-up, medium, and long-shot.
I noticed a rack focus shot, which was interesting considering the hand movements involved with playing the instrument. I don’t necessarily like the fact that they placed the subject perfectly in the center of the frame, but it does showcase people walking through on each side in what appears to be a lit public walkway. I think the close up shots are creative, and I enjoy that the background is more of an artistic blur. It’s a simplistic yet enjoyable video, featuring an awesome instrument.
