The mystifying 9th album in the Field Works series, Cedars combines
cosmic Americana with Western ambient and Middle Eastern influences.
Delicate layers of pedal steel, banjo, oud, and hurdy-gurdy ﬂoat atop
looping guitar drones to create a soothing, atmospheric chamber where
folk and electronic music coalesce. Set to Arabic and English poetry,
the song cycle examines some of Earth’s most iconic and ancient
forests, revealing our complicated relationship with the natural world.
For this special dual-language release, Field Works producer Stuart
Hyatt has assembled a supergroup of musicians, poets, and artists. The
album is narrated by Youmna Saba and H.C. McEntire. Instrumentalists
include Marisa Anderson, Fadi Tabbal, Dena El Saffar, Danny Paul Grody,
Bob Hoffnar, Tomás Lozano, Nathan Bowles, Alex Roldan, Youmna Saba, and
Stuart Hyatt. Renowned illustrator María Medem brings poems by Todd
Fleming Davis and Youmna Saba to life in the accompanying full-color
Risograph comic book; and longtime Field Works collaborators PRINTtEXT
design the packaging.
