“Fields of Noise” is a new series of ambient albums from danish synth-pioneer Ole Højer Hansen.
The idea of “Fields of Noise” is to create an ambient, musical space, inspired by sounds, noise and glitches in our surroundings.
The music is created as a composed interaction between field-recordings, conventional instruments, voices and synthesizers – manipulated through analog and digital effect-chains.
The cover-art for the Fields of Noise albums – are all created as a part of the composition, using “real-world” noisy photos and light, generated through several random processes and techniques.
Although he has released 18 albums during the years [with Trusted Enemy, Electric Enemy, Electribute, RO & a number of soundtracks], this will be the first solo-album, in his own name, since 1992 [The Dome].
Despite Ole Højer Hansen is wellknown for the use of real sounds and field-recordings in former albums [Transmission (1985), Nudity (1989) & The Dome [1992) – modern techniques and equipment, makes it possible to identify new territories in sound manipulation.
The albums will be released as they become ready – starting with “Fields of Noise #1” April 14. 2017.
“Fields of Noise” is released exclusively on Dubtrack Music.
