On The Bridges present:
Fieldhead is Paul Elam. He produces ambient/electronic music that delights in tape hiss, geography, bleak landscapes and decaying analogue loops. He is ably assisted by violinist and long term collaborator Elaine Reynolds (The Boats, The Declining Winter). Formed in Leeds, UK in 2008, Fieldhead released a number of EPs and the critically acclaimed album They Shook Hands for Hours (Home Assembly Music, 2009) before relocating to Vancouver, BC in 2010.
Whilst residing in Canada, Paul busied himself with remixing the likes of Epic45, Conquering Animal Sound and Brave Timbers and recording Fieldhead's second album, 'a correction'. 'a correction' was released to wide acclaim on Gizeh Records in late October 2012. The new album builds on the love of melody, brevity and dusty atmosphere to be found in previous releases, but also adds a widescreen expansiveness in keeping with the vastness of the landscape it was created in. Paul returned to the UK to take up residence in Newcastle Upon Tyne in 2012.
Brave Timbers is melodic and minimal instrumental music using violin, piano and tenor guitar. The music is often improvised, using looped strings, subtle piano and finger picked guitar to create a warm and organic sound. Songs are inspired by nature, and often accompanied by visuals.
The debut Brave Timbers album 'for every day you lost' was released in September 2010 on Second Language Records. It was made Album of the Week at Norman Records and sold out of its limited release.
Brave Timbers also contributed a track to the Second Language 'Music & Migration' compilation alongside Vashti Bunyan, Peter Broderick and Hauschka, as well as reworking a track by Yuri Lugovskoy for his 2012 album released on Home Assembly Music.
Brave Timbers have played shows alongside P. Jorgensen, Epic 45, Seasons (pre-din), The Declining Winter and Amiina.
Charles-Eric Charrier is a French bassist and pianist mining the remote seams of music between post-classical, jazz, acoustic blues and ambient. Hidden or distant those seams may be, but all the richer for those who take the time to seek them out. Echoes of innovative artists like Earth, Anouar Brahem, Bohren und der Club of Gore, Chet Baker or even Malian musicians such as Ali Farka Toure and Tinariwen sometimes appear on the horizon, only to disappear at the next turn. Charrier's music as band-leader on Petite Soeur, his first release for Gizeh Records, is endlessly yearning and searching, pushing and pulling at the basic fabric of bass, piano, drums and guitar.
