"Mapping The Futures Gone By" [HNR55] furthers CONTACT FIELD ORCHESTRA's exploration of dubby broken percussion and haunting found sounds. Sirens and lasers accent plaintive woodwind arrangements set against mbiras and bluesy guitars. Fitting in a time and place that's uniquely it's own, MTFGB is a travelogue to a lucid dream, a mining expedition or a trip to space--somehow nostalgic and familiar, yet somehow not at all. This EP is the fourth 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. 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 this collection of releases with Hit+Run.
