Field Rotation Interview

'I have planned to focus more on the acoustic way of music expression in future. Natural sounds and acoustic instruments have a wider range of frequencies, dynamics and atmosphere, so I want to tap the full potential of sound sources all around me – of course also including the piano and violin'.

Review of 002 from Morpheus Magazine

Beautiful electronic glitchscapes with various acoustic elements. Field Rotation is a project with a rare sense of elegant beauty. The subtle classical threads that twine through these digital arrangements imbue the music with a dignity and grace that immediately lifts Licht und Schatten above the norm. The melodic content is relatively minimal, yet these sparse soundtracks are highly emotive, heavy with atmosphere and most inviting. Melancholy acoustic guitar hangs over heaving synthetic pads in melodic calm, whilst in other passages tense string swells ebb and flow in dramatic shadow. Plaintive piano and transmission fragments alternate with string snatches upon a bed of sonic breeze, the crunch of footfalls rises and falls behind days-end glow, faint arpeggios morph across rhythmic electronica. Once the understated beats roll in, the music almost sighs at times with a restrained serenity. Click-ridden scratchy rhythms and soft crackle adorn the more regular beats that drive some of the recordings, some pieces have no beat for the most part or none at all.

Review of 002 from Adrian Carter over at 020 magazine

‘Licht Und Schatten’ is the latest work from Germany’s Field Rotation, serving both as a suitable introduction to the work of Christoph Berg and a precursor to his next album on the Fluid Audio label in 2010.

This release consists of seven tracks, not necessarily the easiest to define because Berg slides gently sideways through the gentler aspects of electronica. His arrangements are expansive frameworks allowing him room to weave discrete melodies and percussion within the tracks.

Fluid Audio 001 'Hope' Reviews

'Hope comes pretty close to being everything a compilation should be!' Textura

'As a collection the material on offer here drift back and forth from what you would classify as more traditional ambient into electroacoustic territory with its found sound association. Melodies drift and disperse and give way to tones and washes, often there is a deepening sense of drama to the pieces and while in many cases they burn slowly there is a relentless nature to them (have a listen to Field Rotation’s Regenezit for example)'. 020 Magazine

'A fine project one hopes will find as large an audience as possible'. Sonomu

'If you enjoy classical beauty and ambient downtempo you will be hard pressed to find a stronger collaborative album than Hope this year'. Morpheus

Atlas

Well worth checking out Halogen’s side project Atlas...

'I finally uploaded the album to archive.org I thought it was safest there, it’s a magical place and people actually listen to your music, which is nice. Continuing with the previous ethos employed by the past albums, all music is improvised and recorded on to cassette tape. This means there is a lot of muffled whispers and random clattering, which can be interpreted as added ‘ambience’ if you like… I condensed about 3 hours of material into 8 separate tracks, its very strange, but i like that and hope you will too'.

Field Rotation Remixes ‘Length and Brecht’

The talented Halogen blew us all away a few months back with the incredible ‘Length and Brecht’ track on the IDMF 002 Concord release. The track was so good that the IDMF label decided to do a remix EP and asked artists to submit there compositions. With hundreds of submissions offered up to the label, a shortlist of three tracks made the release along with the original Halogen version. One of the remixes that made the EP was from Field Rotation. His adaption of the track is something to behold and comes very close to beating the original as it has a unique style of its own and in our view was the best of the remixes due to the experimental approach that Christoph took….
