Primary Fields is a series of works based on the same single field recording in different variations. In each of the six pieces in this release, Shay Nassi presents the recording in a different context, developing new sonic results and allowing various interpretations. The composition process started from the preparation and editing of the field recordings, while ideas were sketched and patches were programmed in a modular synth. The field recordings were then played through the patch and manipulated towards the creation of new layers and loops, with each of the pieces in Primary Fields resulting from recordings of these performances.
