Aka happy new year !


The tune and lyrics are from Cheburashka, the soviet anime movie (original version here).

Technical info (for the geeks I suppose):

We recorded Arthur with a Zoom h4 over a few playing sessions.

I played the accompaniment using our PomPom soundfont. It is made with samples of our voice (in sfz format and loaded into linuxsampler). Sequencing was done in Qtractor.

We recorded Estelle’s singing in Ardour, which was also used for mixing.

Then the image was edited in Gimp. Converted to a video with the soundtrack in Openshot. Subtitles were made in Aegisub and burnt into the video with Avidemux.

All opensource software. And a lot of fun too :-)
