Record Label: Hit+Run
Hit & Run presents this exclusive mixtape to coincide with CFO’s first ever European Tour.
Contact Field Orchestra is produced by Southern California artist and musician 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 celebrated releases 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.
