Digital only/8.226625 – Music is not always participatory
James Black, Bára Gísladóttir, Connor McLean
Just after the world ground to a halt due to the coronavirus, James Black found himself in receipt of a large working grant from the Danish Arts Foundation. He had the means to compose, and the lockdown would give him a motive for the specific project he set his mind to. This recording is what he produced – an album bound by restriction and that flirts with failure, but delivers powerfully on the fundamentals of art and expression.
