Christopher Fields Music
Christopher Fields music is a symphonic experiment which is best described through experience. It is at the same time comfortable and transcendent, two qualities that are usually diametrically opposed. We'll address both qualities separately and then talk about how they mingle to form a unique sound.
Music that is labeled as "challenging" usually breaks new grounds in its attempt to surprise the listener. It is this aural shock that stimulates us, and makes us think about what we're listening to. At the same time, conceptual music that loses its sense of time and structure becomes distant and unattached. Christopher Fields music is comfortable because it is rich and complex, but at the same time undeniably beautiful and catchy.
To illustrate this point, listen to "Ave Maria," a track from his new CD, Sub-Conscious. Alternating between minor and major tonalities, "Ave Maria" is difficult to ignore because of its elaborate arrangement and powerful vocal melodies. Such vibrant melodic construction is what he is known for, whether it's composing and arranging hit music for movie trailers or for his own devices.
Christopher Fields music is transcendent because it can be listened to in a variety of environments. Warm and powerful, songs like "Blue" and "Mother" are versatile offerings that succeed on many levels. Sub-Conscious makes a statement that Christopher Fields is an exciting new talent in the area of conceptual music.
