EXCLUSIVE: Casually Here debuts video for ‘Pale Blue Dot’

Casually Here released the ambient, dextrous beats and subtle electronic textures of the first single ‘Pale Blue Dot‘, from his upcoming album Possible Worlds last month.  Today we are debuting the artistic accompanying video below.

The Algebra Records head will release his ambitious second solo album on 1st April. Casually Here (AKA Nic Nell) is an artist, composer, sound designer and producer/engineer with a background in art and mathematics

He made it with a 6 LED USB Ikea strip light shining through various coloured liquids and glasses, with the light reflecting and refracting onto a sheet of A1 paper, and shot it all at 960 frames per second on his phone – so that 1 second of time turned into 32 seconds of footage. 

I really like the physics of it – the idea that all of this is going on in the blink of an eye within the violence of splashing of a glass back and forth – and yet here it  is at a different speed of reference in serene calm. I also like the feeling of depth and space – which almost feels architectural at times, and the lack of scale identifiers so it’s not obvious how it was made.

Casually Here recently produced, co-wrote & mixed Orlando Weeks’ (The Maccabees) acclaimed album ‘A Quickening,’ and collaborated on an electronic art/dance album titled ‘Many Worlds‘ w/ Lawrence Hart (Hotflush Recordings.) The latter was released as a series of EPs and received huge support in the dance world from the likes of  George Fitzgerald, Sasha and The Blessed Madonna, and he is also half of both Young Colossus & art pop duo Rainer.

Written, performed, produced and mixed by Casually Here, both the single and the album were mastered and cut by Guy Davie (Jon Hopkins, Bibio, Nathan Fake etc).
