A deep listening event bringing together a new wave of artists with field recording at the heart of their work, coinciding with the release of Fieldwave on Nonclassical and presented in association with Nature Unwrapped, a year-long series of events from Spiritland neighbours Kings Place.
Hosted by Fieldwave curator Nick Luscombe, the event features talks, playbacks and appearances from Kate Carr, Iain Chambers, Dave Bamford, For Now and live performance from Tuulikki Bartosik on accordion.
The release – out on cassette and digital – reflects ‘a burgeoning area of sonic creativity that has gone from a very niche area of sonic art to something much more commonplace’.
It has been compiled by Nick Luscombe, Nonclassical A&R. Writing about Fieldwave, he says, ‘This rapidly expanding social phenomenon is exciting in that it both democratises the art of composition – with minimal barriers to capturing and creating new work “in the field”- and challenges how we view today’s role of a composer.’
