Fields: Churches & Rivers by Spaceship

LOCATION: Fields, churches and rivers.

MUSIC: Spaceship

ART: Maxim Griffin

Fields: Churches & Rivers forms the first volume of a projected ‘Fields’ series by Spaceship, with cover art by Unofficial Britain stalwart Maxim Griffin, whose work you can see reviewed by us here. Mark Williamson from Spaceship made this music by driving to the site, recording its natural ambience, then writing and performing the track in situ. The result is an album of woozy pastoral where the sounds of the English landscape bleed into acoustic textures of guitar, chime bars, harmonium, zither and accordion.

Have a listen below and, if you like the album, support this independent artist by purchasing it.

We’ve already profiled Mark Williamson’s track sound walk on Walthamstow Marsh on the site, so do check that out.
