about

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. The National Road is a 12-song cycle built around Stuart Hyatt’s audio field recordings made as he walked along a single street in Indianapolis. Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities provides the narrative framework as hundreds of fleeting moments are assembled into a sprawling sonic landscape. Music by Lali Puna, B. Fleischmann, Nick Zammuto, Lullatone, Daring Ear, Player Piano, Prototokyo, Forrest Lewinger, and Stuart Hyatt. Original artwork by Nathaniel Russell.
