about

Geoff Gersh, recording under the name Ambient Fields, completed a landmark, genre-defining ambient music project during a six week music residency in Ólafsfjörður, a small town in northeast Iceland. He composed the music contained on Ólafsfjörður using guitar played through, and manipulated by, various effects pedals, all directly inspired by the interactions he had with the town and its natural wonders.
The music depicts a deep, introspective view of Gersh’s time spent in Ólafsfjörður.
One can hear, and feel, the influence of the land and town: amidst the cold, Icelandic skies exists the warm splendor of life in its purest form. The album insinuates it should be listened to not from start to finish, and not in a linear motion, but in small pieces. Explore the music as one would explore new surroundings, as one would imagine Gersh spent his time in the remote village in Iceland doing, without a guide, relying only on the senses and an open mind.

As a guitarist/composer, I’m very interested in exploring the sonic possibilities of the electric guitar with and without the aid of electronic devices and found objects to produce sounds one would normally not associate with the guitar.
