This video was shot just a couple hours after I arrived in Oneonta, NY for the New York Summer Music Festival. I taught jazz piano there for two weeks. I brought my camcorder which I didn't have with me at this moment unfortunately. I was walking across the SUNY Oneonta campus when I happened upon these two fawns. I stopped in my tracks and sat down just to watch them. Eventually I pulled out my iPhone to snap some shots and take some video. Luckily the fawns were in a curious mood, checking me out as much as I was them. The video quality is not great, but I thought this close encounter was still worthy of the project.
I had recently pulled out Carla Bley's Jésus Maria for a gig, and while playing through it a couple days ago, I realized it would be good accompaniment to the fawns. The trick was matching the length of the recording to the length of footage I had. I had a little more footage, but my stupid finger had gotten in the shot and I didn't want to use it. But I got close enough, and set the scene with some opening credits to help with the problem.
I hope you enjoy Two Fawns
