THE FIELD live
Stockholm-born, Berlin-based, The Field a.k.a. Axel Willner sprung into existence in 2003 when Axel took to Buzz – a software program he still uses to make music today – to construct his ambient techno based on a stoic motorik and a perpetually rotating hook. He was picked up by Kompakt just a year later. His track ‘Love vs. Distance’ provided an early demonstration of how the Swede could take just four bars of sound and deftly deconstruct, alter and rebuild them to create a constantly changing canvas. His follow-up 2006 EP ‘Sun & Ice,’ imbued a sense of wandering expanse with tracks like ‘Over The Ice’ skipping along like skimmed stones over water.
