To celebrate the release of his debut album, Everything Is Recorded (aka musician, producer and XL Recordings co-founder Richard Russell) presents a video for new self-titled single ‘Everything Is Recorded’ (feat. Sampha & Owen Pallett). Watch below!
The video has been created by friend, collaborator and acclaimed visual artist Toby Ziegler and builds on Ziegler’s work exploring the algorithms of online image search engines. From a series of over 3000 seemingly random and incongruous images, Ziegler has created something highly emotive and personal, informed by the emotion Russell and Sampha have created in the music itself. For a more in-depth contextualisation of the video, head to It’s Nice That.
The ‘Everything Is Recorded’ video is currently showing as part of Everything Is Recorded In Residence, a major site-specific collaboration between Russell and Ziegler taking place at the abandoned Savoy cinema in Dalston, east London.
Everything Is Recorded’s debut album Everything Is Recorded by Richard Russell features an eclectic cast of collaborators and musicians who include Sampha, Kamasi Washington, Daman Albarn, Giggs, Ibeyi, Wiki, Green Gartside, Peter Gabriel and more. The album was recorded at Russell’s west London studio, The Copper House. The studio became a creative second home for the revolving cast of both new and established artists who passed through to write, record and share ideas, mixing traditional recording sessions with extended live jams.
Meanwhile, Everything Is Recorded recorded their debut live session for BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac earlier this week, You can listen back to the session, which features Sampha, Ibeyi and Infinite HERE.
