'Colourfield', Dan Michaelson’s first bold step into the orchestral world sees release on Village Green in suitable splendour from today with a deluxe vinyl edition that renders the project in the full audiophile aspect which it deserves.
A landmark for the artist, better known for his dark tinged Americana here Michaelson charts a course lit by his instrumental influences of John Luther Adams, Spiritualized and Gavin Bryars.
Featuring contributions from Galya Bisengalieva, Robert Ames and Christo Squier, in Dan’s own words “the experience was much like being in a band, but with fewer wrong notes”, which suited him just fine.
The music has been supported from the off by the doyenne of unclassifiable music, Elizabeth Alker (Radio 3) and global aficionado Giles Peterson on both his BBC 6 Music and Worldwide FM sessions.
Meanwhile here's what the press had to say about 'Colourfield'
