I wanted to test camera and mic setup with Nt55, so I had p002 describe p003 how to do interlinear transcription. I messed up the focus though, because I somehow put the automatic focus on again. I have to check again how to freeze the foucs on higher aperture, and then lower the aperture. The video is so dark because I tried to get the overexposed parts dealt with. The Martin's teck informed me that one can lighten the video later on, but overexposed pixels are damaged forever.

The last time I had gone into the mosque for recording the sermons by the Imams, I had simply assumed that the pre-sermon part would be in Soso as is common here. But I underestimated the extend to which Baga is still in use in these villages and if there is no stranger in the mosque that does not understand Baga the sermons are still done in Baga (as I was told). I therefore contacted the muezzin to ask him, if he would be willing to be recorded and he consented readily. I set this up with the @TRAM and the @shotgun. The difficulty consisted in finding the best camera position. One elder was not so happy with my camera placement the last time, because it interrupted the first line of mosque goers. Although the Imam and other elders present when I set up the camera did not seem to have any problems with it. Regardless, I did not want to run into the same controversy and thus placed the camera between the rows. Seidou told me that the muezzin can do the 'wadje' from any place in the mosque. He does not have a fixed position. I therefore asked the muezzin to move a little to the left. .The cloth to cover the window was placed by us to counter the backlight.

This recording was proposed by p003 and p002, who wanted this 'Ancien Combatant" to tell his experiences as a parachutist. As usual we had set up a few people to come to the soccer field in the morning for recordings and while he was waiting for one p038 to finish her fairy tales he mentioned that he also knows some. Thus he told two fairy tales after the description of his military career.

This is a wierd session. I wanted to work on tones today, but yesterday's problems with the generator and the sickness of the daughter of one of the assistants made work slow, and I was not ready to work further on tones. So I thought that p051 could talk about his work as a fetish messenger for the local soccer club CiK, but he said he should do that with p052, because it was them, that organized that together. As fate would have it that moment p052 knowcked on the courtyard door and he came with the brother of p004 (i.e. p031). I set up the camera and they conversed. I only asked them to move a little closer. I was fine with just haveing them converse and I could work further on the tonal problems inside, but p051 thought that I also wanted the soccer story and so he asked me, if I wanted them to talk about that and the session became somewhat more organized. After they finished telling their story, I said, if they have nothing against it I will just let the camera roll. I adjusted the recording level two times a tick lower.
