Abstract: A multi-dimensional bilateral $ q$-series extending the $ q$-Selberg integral is studied using concepts of truncation, regularization and connection formulae. Following Aomoto's method, which involves regarding the $ q$-series as a solution of a $ q$-difference equation fixed by its asymptotic behavior, an infinite product evaluation is obtained. The $ q$-difference equation is derived applying the shifted symmetric polynomials introduced by Knop and Sahi. As a special case of the infinite product formula, Askey-Evans's $ q$-Selberg integral evaluation and its generalization by Tarasov-Varchenko and Stokman is reclaimed, and an explanation in the context of Aomoto's setting is thus provided.
