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 ex­miners; recorded almost entirely with hand­made instruments and contact microphones. This became the source material for a collection of celebrated releases with music label Hit+Run.

Contact Field Orchestra est produit par Damon Aaron, un artiste et musicien du sud de la Californie. En 2008, lors d’une vente immobilière à Altadena, celui-ci tombe sur une boîte de bandes 7" qui se révèlent être des enregistrements de terrain d’un orchestre formé par d’anciens miniers au tournant du siècle. Enregistré presque entièrement avec des instruments faits à la main et des microphones de contact, ce matériel devient la source d’une collection de productions réunies sous le label de musique Hit+Run.
CFO has also appeared on Gilles Peterson's seminal compilation series "Brownswood Bubblers" (Volume 10), and contributed to Ninja Tune's popular "Solid Steel" mix. CFO'S latest edition, Mapping The Futures Gone By, furthers their exploration of dubby broken percussion and haunting found sounds. Sirens and lasers accent plaintive woodwind arrangements set against mbiras and bluesy guitars. Fitting in a time and place that's uniquely it's own, a travelogue to a lucid dream, a mining expedition or a trip to space – somehow nostalgic and familiar, yet somehow not at all.

CFO est également apparu sur la série de compilations “Brownswood Bubblers” (volume 10) de Gilles Peterson et a contribué au mix populaire “Solid Steel” de Ninja Tunes. La dernière édition en date de CFO, Mapping The Futures Gone By, poursuit l’exploration de percussions dubby et de sons obsédants. Les sirènes et lasers accentuent les arrangements plaintifs d’instruments à vent auxquels répondent les mbiras et guitares bluesy. Montage dans un temps et un lieu qui lui est propre, carnet de route d’un rêve éveillé, expédition minière ou voyage dans l’espace - à la fois nostalgique et familier, et pas du tout.
