Wednesday, February 18, 2009. German artist Thomas Hornung has the habit of making many quick drawings, most of which he discards, and some he archives. Guitarist Scott Fields made this CD to accompany these drawings and to mimick their creation. The CD consists of 98 tracks, ranging from 8 seconds to 1 minute. In this short period, there's hardly anything to tell, and that's what it sounds like: short snippets of sound, with no apparent sense.

Scott Fields' (b. 1955) Samuel, the second album of compositions based on Beckett's plays, follows 2007's highly acclaimed Beckett. One could argue though that Fields's compositions are in fact closer to the original texts than most other Beckett-inspired musical works, for the simple reason that the Chicago-born guitarist and composer actually derives his music directly from them, not only by assigning precise pitches, chords, time values and rhythms to particular words and phrases in the text and transforming. Beckett's wordplay into clearly delineated melodic lines.

Either way, BiWDiF is certainly Fields’ first acoustic solo CD. The compositions are based on nine Charles Bukowski poems. This allows him to drawn a wide spectrum of colors from his Scott Fields model Ark New Era guitar. The first five tracks, a suite called burning in water, are in a tuning that is common in folk and classical guitar music. The highest five strings are tuned as usual and the 6th string is lowed a whole stop to D. The final four tracks, the suite drowning in flame, use a quarter-tone tuning that Fields believes he invented. Octaves are divided into 24 quarter-steps instead of the 12 half-steps that the frets on a guitar usually allow.
