Scott Reinke Excellent atmospherics that I wish would last forever, especially Wands Upon a Thousand Fields. Favorite track: Wands Upon A Thousand Fields.

Wagnerfilm This was more or less a blind buy for me, and I must say it's one of the most impressive ambient recordings I own. The opening track is a sheer stunner, with a quiet cinematic sweep that evokes the apocalyptic downfall of a once-great nation. A unique emotional experience in a genre usually given over to mere atmospherics. Favorite track: Ashes of America.

David Single Outstanding. I simply had to support the artists. I love the horns that rise to the surface on Delicate Exit, only to sink again beneath the swelling drone. Awesome. (Marsen Jules offers a similar sound, for those wanting more.) Favorite track: Delicate Exit.

Michael LoCicero It doesn't get any better than this. All musicians need to use this release as a goal to achieve in their own works. From start to finish this is what ambient music is all about Favorite track: Wands Upon A Thousand Fields.

    offthesky & Pleq - A Thousand Fields 2xLP (Infraction) INFX 061 LP
    A Thousand Fields is the first collaboration between Denver, Colorado based artist offthesky (Jason Corder) and Warsaw, Poland based musician Pleq (Bartosz Dziadosz). From the opening restrained "Ashes of America" with intermittant ominous strings through the industrial landscape of "drown under..." with it's glittering glass and harmonious drones breaking through, this work of ambient tapestry sees each artist pulling the best work from one another. Both are veteran experimental and ambient recording
    artists with dozens of recordings to their credit. Featured on a multitude of labels that read like a roster of contemporary ambient and soundscape recordings - Home Normal, Ephre, Taalem, Databloem, dataObscura, Basses Frequencies, Constellation Tatsu to name just a few.

    This recording feels like a potential has been met. What has been hinted at in solo and prior collaborations meshed together with an influence of equal parts minimalism, fourth world ambience, field recordings, drone, and experimental composition to a stunning degree.

    Composition is thrilling when notes are allowed to breathe, to vibrate. A single piano string, the circular slow melody of a violin, as on the nostalgic "Delicate Exit" or the delicate assembly of abstract beauty - distant harp, an interrupted string section, shuffling of feet, a ghostly echo as on "simulacromancer".

    This is a 2xLP set, mastered by Carl Saff, cut at 45 rpm. It is housed in a tip-on style heavy gatefold sleeve with OBI strip featuring artwork from Pyhai. The first 300 copies will include a bonus 7" entitled "Still Your Bones" (INFX 062 S) with 2 exclusive tracks. The entire pressing is a 500 copy edition, available in white 180g vinyl (limited to 100 copies **White vinyl Sold Out**) and the remaining 400 copies will be on black 180g vinyl.

    Includes unlimited streaming of A Thousand Fields via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
