The second, and perhaps more meditative, installment in the Bang on Can All-Stars' acclaimed commissioned composer series, More Field Recordings once again maps a strange new terrain where found sound, samples and archival audio collide with contemporary classical music, written by a wide range of artists and performed by the Bang on a Can All-Stars. In keeping with the "ground rules" of the Field Recordings project, each composer was asked to go into the field of recorded sound itself — to find something old or record something new, and to respond with their own music, in dialogue with what they found. Featuring new works by Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), Caroline Shaw, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Dan Deacon, Ben Frost and more, this two-disc set embraces the classical and electronic influences of the first Field Recordings collection (released on Cantaloupe in 2015) and extends its reach into futuristic worlds of ambient and ethereal sound. Special package exquisitely designed by artist Russell Mills, known for his work with Nine Inch Nails.
