about

Contact Field Orchestra is produced by Damon Aaron. In 2008 he came across a box of 7" tapes at an estate sale in Altadena that turned out to be field recordings of a turn-of-the century orchestra of ex-miners; recorded almost entirely with hand-made instruments and contact microphones. This became the source material for a collection of releases with Hit+Run. CFO's exploration of dubby broken percussion and haunting found sounds, combines sirens and lasers accenting plaintive woodwind arrangements against mbiras and bluesy guitars. A lucid dream, a mining expedition or a trip to space--somehow nostalgic and familiar, yet somehow not at all.

"CFO X H+R Mixtape No.2" [HNR66] is a 30-minute wormhole of phonic resonance, featuring the new track "Pirates Jack Pyrite" plus compositions from "Mapping The Futures Gone by By" [HNR56]. This mixtape is the fifth release from CONTACT FIELD ORCHESTRA with Hit+Run. CFO has also appeared on Giles Peterson's seminal compilation series "Brownswood Bubblers"(Volume 10), and contributed to Ninja Tune's popular "Solid Steel" mix.

Limited to 100qty chrome cassettes pressed on a fool's gold yellow tape shell. Contains a secret bonus item.

Released in celebration of CFO's first European tour dates in July!
