Shaelone reveals today a new facet of his elegant universe of electronica. “First Tape” reflects the analog recordings which weaved the EP through its journeys and encounters. From the poetry of “San’s Revenge” to the romantic power of “Painless”, Shaelone tells us an intense story bathed in warm textures and nostalgic melodies. The various feelings and influences involved in “First Tape” shows his ability to immerse us into his stellar universe.
For this project we really tried to capture and combine the raw organic nature of analog film. I was eager to try and juxtapose a sense of fleeting moments with the permanence of film by setting Prim against four different backgrounds and using a combination of 16mm, 8mm and VHS-C to shoot the video. The idea of capturing something so delicate and beautiful as dance while moving the viewer through all these different environments was something that Lucas and I felt would really sit alongside the track and it’s messages about the destruction and manipulation of nature.
