Welcome to the page of the project Earth-Field!
Here you'll find the latest info about what is going on:
+++15.10.2016: Concert/Performance with Sprechbohrer at the Alte Feuerwache in Köln +++
+++ 28.08.2015: Release of the new single "Heartbeats" featuring the two tracks "Heartbeats 1 & 2" +++
The single “Heartbeats“ is the second single by the Cologne based artist Earth-Field. It features the two tracks “Heartbeats 1“ and “Heartbeats 2“. Both tracks are only based on digitally recorded audio material that later was digititally manipulated.
Both tracks originate from the same kind of material. The audio was recorded when a pregnant woman was connected to a cardiotocograph. The sound recorded is the sound of the heartbeat of the unborn baby. You can also hear some surrounding noises, such as the doorbell, telephone ringing or door smashing.
In both tracks no synthesizers, midi instruments, drum kits or such pre-existing instruments were used. It should be stressed, that both tracks try not to be simple sound collages, but experimental approaches to the genres House or Electronic comparable to the sound of groups like Matmos or producers like Matthew Herbert.
+++ 02.03.2015: Release of the first single "Tanzanite" featuring the two tracks "Tanzanite" & “Zeitgeist" +++
The single “Tanzanite“ is the debut single by the Cologne based artist Earth-Field. It features the two tracks “Tanzanite“ and “Zeitgeist“. Both tracks are only based on digitally recorded audio material that later was digititally manipulated, they have in common, that they try to disguise the origin of the material that was used.
“Tanzanite“ is based on audio recording of the a.o. noises, clicks, bugs and switch off signals by an electronic table organ from the seventies. The harmonic parts result from resampling of harmonised noises. The organ was not played in the common sense.
“Zeitgeist“ is only based on one recording of the spoken word „Zeitgeist“. The recording was cut to split the phonems. This very reduced material results in a more experimental track.
In both tracks no synthesizers, midi instruments, drum kits or such pre-existing instruments were used.
