Recording Music, With a Camera

The members of Austin’s Mother Falcon are multi-instrumentalists, especially Tamir Kalifa, who is their man on accordion, piano, bouzouki, guitar and camera.

Tamir Kalifa also carries one instrument no one else does: a camera to create a lasting record of their recording and performing. It beats lugging speakers. “People get mad at me for shooting stuff rather than carrying stuff,” he said. “But this is about the long term.”
