James Black

Mushroom is a powerful musical statement and work that mixes instrumental theater, performance, scenography, video and electroacoustic music. A work written for seven specific musicians and the composer, who together have determined the instrumentation of the work. It is the preliminary first artistic meeting between Scenatet and James Black and together they create James Black’s greatest work to date.

Through intense, almost trance-like states, Mushroom explores the concepts of control and manipulation. Two concepts that, despite their governing form, have limitations, which is how the concept of compromise is revealed between the significant and the absurd. What are we sacrificing for other people?
