Very happy to announce the pre-order is now up for my upcoming album ‘Thanks’ on the wonderful label Ambientologist. Huge appreciation to them for the support and Ian Hawgood for the fantastic job he did on the mastering.
From the Bandcamp page:
Thanks’ is an album of simplicity, inspiration and most of all, gratitude, by synthesist and sound artist Fields We Found.
Performed live, the album utilises the space between its swells of electronic and sampled tones, intertwining layers of charming melody. Humble in its expression, perhaps best described in the modest prose of the artist himself:
“To show my love and gratitude to everyone who’s helped me discover my true voice.
Music inspired by memories and emotions entwined together, interactions and conversations buried in the past.
Hazy nostalgia and dreamlike positivity, hoping to find connections between us all.”
Recorded straight to 1/4” tape using: Emu Emax HD, Korg Mono/Poly, Elektron Octatrack, Endorphins Shuttle System, OTO/Chase Bliss/CooperFX/Bastl effects, Roland RE-201, and various tape machines.
All tracks composed and performed by Fields We Found
Mastering by Ian Hawgood

Hope all good!
I’ve been humbled to the fantastic response to the release of my debut album - we’ve had such a great couple of weeks and Bandcamp Friday, we’ve extended the name your price until this Friday - so you can pick it up for free or whatever you can afford
Making it to the first page of Bandcamp ambient bestsellers was a bit of an overwhelming experience - huge thanks to everyone here who supported the release.
Ambient soundscapes inspired by friends, connections and synchronicity - hope you enjoy!
Done a few posts talking about the gear and processes, can see them here if any interest
