My participation in the recording and music video of the song “Veil” by Domino with siblings Lally Buendia (Domino) and Ely Buendia (Pupil/The Oktaves/The Eraserheads) is something I consider as one of my firsts. My first time to record and perform a banduria/octavina for other artists, and my first time to be featured in a music video other than mine.
Although the album Mantis, where the song “Veil” appeared, was recorded and released in 2012, it didn’t prevent the Buendias to artfully produce a music video. To which I feel is more of a passion project rather than a promotional item for the album. Watch the strangely compelling music video directed Ely Buendia.
The Director of Photography / Editor / VFX Man behind the music video, Adrian Arcega, shared some behind-the-scenes photos taken during the shoot in Mt. Makiling, Laguna. See the rest HERE.
Listen to the Album Mantis by Domino, released in 2012.
Catch Ely Buendia with Pupil, Domino and my band Dragonfly Collector live on April 22 at 19 East for another leg of the PUPIL Album Bar Tour.
