Stephen Caulfield Evokes the Mystery and Allure of Coastal Iceland on “Field of View”

Inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, “Field of View” by Stephen Caulfield comes in with a spectral drone with slight distortions in the tone like sun winking off ice in the distance before the landmass looms into view. A copse of trees gives a hint that the promontory jutting out from the fog is not an iceberg but the sometimes otherworldly land of ice and fire that the Vikings colonized centuries ago. As an up close, rapid cycling, distorted stream of sound gives way to a more spacious and ambient softly drifting melodic noise it conjures visions of the low lying clouds and fog clearing to reveal the jagged inlets and high cliffs, the majestic and silent vistas of Iceland before you that must have captivated the first humans to set foot there as well as modern travelers to the island nation.
