Field Works - Ultrasonic [Temporary Residence Promo]

Conceptual art is conceptual. Using echolocation sounds of the endangered Indiana bat as source material for all fourteen tracks on this album released via Temporary Residence on May 1st, 2k20 Stuart Hyatt's large scale collaborational project dubbed Field Works makes a massive return with "Ultrasonic", one part in a wider project scheme funded by the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute with the goal to draw attention towards this specific species and its story. Realized with the help and contribution of a wide range of collaborating artists including the likes of Taylor Dupree, Chihei Hatakeyama, Machinefabriek and many others the albums musical spectrum spans from elegic, score'esque Ambient- / ChillOut-leaning string arrangements in the opener "Dusk Tempi" to soft, ever cascading Ambient polylayers in "Night Swimming", playful piano naturalism in "Echo Affinity" or vast spatial, somewhat outerworldy and brooding bass movements in combination with beautifully haunted atmospheres as featured in "Marion" and even implementing subaquatic sci-fi bleeps and clonks in beauteous, all embracing harmonic pads found in tunes like "Indiana Blindfold" just to name a few. One for all true Ambient heads out there.
