Fields Were the Essence of the Song: Deluxe Edition

from Jessica Curry

Originally created by the brilliant Colin Herrick at Time Release Sound, this is a 22 minute mini disc available only in a limited fine art edition of 80 copies. These are sold out on the TRS website and now there are only 7 left for sale in the world. Each mini disc comes housed in a vintage 3.5” film can. Included in the can is an artified, 3" mini CD hubbed to the inside of the lid, a set of 4 round photographic prints of Jessica’s walking locale, fragments of her original score for the piece, twigs gathered on her walks, and a mini textual scroll, all nestled on a bed of moss. Each can itself is hand stamped on the outside, covered with photo and credit info, hand typed on an antique typewriter.

“Fields Were the Essence of the Song is a site-specific soundtrack for a film which does not exist, one which is created by the ever-changing relationship of the listener, formed by their self-steered journey, around the environment. An emotional landscape, shot through with abstract suggestions of narrative, is created by the soundtrack; the rest is up to you. Unlike most soundwalks, there are no instructions. There are no specific places to be at specific times, or actions to perform. You can wander freely; you can find a spot and sit and listen. The music and text were written as a response to the site, but Fields is about your individual reaction to both the work and the environment.”

A real collectors item and once these final 7 are gone, that's it!

Includes unlimited streaming of Remix: Fields Were the Essence of the Song via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
