Inspired by Stuart Hyatt’s audio field recordings, musicians from around the world have contributed complex sonic narratives under the Field Works banner. Each album begins with Hyatt’s samples and soundscapes from a particular time and location, weaving them into musical phrases and ultimately into song cycles intended to give the listener a heightened and more nuanced sense of place. Glen Rose Formation is made of suites of pedal steel and orchestral ambiance inspired by the landscape and unique geology of south central Texas. Narrated by 89-year-old Mary McGrath Curry, the music is built around resonant frequencies measured in the Cave without a Name. Composed and performed by the Field Works Ensemble, with remixes by Dntel, Matmos, Lusine, Rafiq Bhatia, and Luke Abbott. Visual Art by Soomin Jung.

I love the simplicity as this is a contrast from his other recordings. I was able to find the latest release "What If" on vinyl and that too is brilliant for what it is with electronics and prepared piano. This one is Hauschka as the pure pianist on most tracks. Haunting, beautiful compositions. Has anyone noticed that song titles form sentences. I Am Walking From House to House To An Empty Mall. Can You Dance For Me Into The Dawn. etc. Rob O.
