James Black has released a music video for his piece 'SHEL' featured on the album 'Music Is Not Always Participatory'.

"SHEL is an homage to the electronica that I loved growing up - Röyksopp, Air, The Books. Per Nørgård's infinity series, opera quotations, and serial procedures are combined with the eternal sound of the Casio keyboard. The video is an exercise in and celebration of scarcity: just myself, a dress (inspired by Robbie Williams), a wig, some Buffalo platforms, a camera, and an office block hallway." – James Black 

Music/Filming/Editing: James Black
Assistant: Connor McLean
Costume: Jane Thomas-Colquhoun

‘SHEL’ is part of the album 'Music Is Not Always Participatory' by James Black released at Dacapo Records .
