Lisa Hannigan performs ‘Oh Undone’, live from a cottage in Baltimore as part of a pre-production rehearsal during the making of Passenger for the song Oh Undone which did not make the album. This is the last and final take from a total of 12 where the band were introduced to the song only a few hours beforehand. I was there cross-legged on the floor in the middle of everyone, trying not to be seen. The camera movements were very slight, I only had room to twist my torso and extend my arms but the use of the 50mm f1.4 lens meant that it looked more like I was flying around the room on the back of a bumble bee. I was using a very old Nikon lens by holding it up to the housing of the Canon so my hands were kept very busy. I later discovered that it’s easy to find Nikon to Canon converter rings online, so I’ve been using Nikon Nikkor lenses ever since, especially when I need that enormous depth of field. Have a look at the Lisa Hannigan Recording Diaries to see more footage from this night and the following days.
