FIELD // Trespass
Hamburg project FIELD has completed
its second album. Based around producer and sound wizard Uwe Haas,
who is responsible for programming, trumpet, keyboards and vocals,
the core of the FIELD line-up is formed by top international professional
musicians - Sven Kacirek (drums), Johannes Huth (double bass),
Martin Hornung (keyboards), Muriel Zoe Borchert (vox) and Kimken (electronics).
The FIELD sound is defined by the many musical facets and international
backgrounds of the musicians. Producer Uwe Haas has worked in various
band projects since the mid-nineties, including S.T.A.R., and has composed
and produced music for numerous television and cinema films. Drummer
Sven Kacirek studied music in New York, Arnhem (NL) and Hamburg and,
among other things, is the author of the book “Drum’n Bass
- Creative Concepts For Drummers” (KDM).
Johannes Huth, double bass, studied at the Hamburg Academy of Music and
Theatre under Dieter Glawischnig and is involved in productions with
the NDR Big Band and various music theatre productions.
Martin Hornung studied piano in Arnhem (NL) and Hamburg, also under Dieter
Glawischnig, and has since been working on various studio productions,
among others for Club Continental and Bullit. Vocalist Muriel Zoe Borchert,
who grew up in India and speaks several languages, works as a songwriter
and guitarist and has already worked on band projects in the singer/songwriter
and jazz fields.
Mastering engineer Kimken lives in Tokyo.
FIELD immediately scored a hit with their first release “StretchYour
Hands Out” in 2000 and have also caused a stir outside Germany.
The album “Cocoon” was released in the following year and
became equally successful.
FIELD then spent 2002 developing their second album and the results will
be released at the start of August. The new album “Trespass” is
definitely more song-based compared with its predecessor, however, it
does not lack experimental structures, tunings and beats. Cracking electro
sounds are combined with bowed double bass runs, percussive beats are
fusioned with flowing brush grooves and free, openly improvised structures
form a very unusual entity with fast pulsating 1/4 bass drums.
