VOLUME commissioned this limited-edition work by Steve Roden in December 2007 in honor of its first year of operations. Vester Fields is now available as a free download, courtesy of the artist and VOLUME.

Vester Fields was composed using a found postcard to determine the following sounds/instruments used to generate the piece: violin (an old handmade tramp art instrument), accordion (a very small children’s toy accordion from china), voice (my own), plant (a shiso branch), field recordings (from marfa texas and a glacier in norway), and a 1940′s home recording (in the form of a 7 inch 78rpm cardboard record).”
