June 16, 2017Endless Field release around the corner!Close your eyes and picture an “endless field” – what comes to mind might be a placid landscape...grass stretching out as far as the eye can see, swaying gently in the wind.

Now look up, and another endless field looms overhead – the vast expanse of space, the night sky offering a glimpse of its infinite majesty. Think in less literal terms, and the phrase might suggest the never-ending pursuit of the musician or artist – a field of study that can last a lifetime and beyond.

All of those meanings tumble together on the uncategorizable, cinematically beautiful self-titled debut album from Endless Field (out June 23 from Biophilia Records), the duo of longtime collaborators Jesse Lewis and Ike Sturm. Both intimate and expansive, boundless and introspective, the album captures the genre-vaulting imagination and the deftly entwined vision of these two artists and their special guests, drawn from some of the most forward-looking voices in modern music.
May 9, 2017"Alcanza" available for pre-order on iTunes!Alcanza, a nine movement suite written for Rhizome (voice, guitar, strings, piano, bass, drums and electronics). The music provides a view of the world as seen through the eyes of a stranger; dealing with the process of searching for our own path and the ways in which we react to those unexpected, confounding life events that ultimately shape who we are. Alcanza aims to reflect the beauty, frustrations and paradoxes of life, reminding us of the importance of always reaching for everything in life that brings us joy and love.
Alcanza (the Spanish word for “reach”) has been made possible with support from Chamber Music America’s 2014 New Jazz Works: Commissioning and Ensemble Development program funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
