For the next interpretation of quiet details we have one of the modern masters of atmospheric, enveloping soundscapes, Mark Burford as Field Lines Cartographer.


With a history of incredible albums and live shows, it’s an honour to present Mark’s take on the idea - a mix of beautiful synthesised textures and delicate field recordings.


He has an endless talent for building deep and evolving pieces, full of melody and modulating washes of ambience that are as captivating as they are hypnotising.

The tracks flow perfectly into each other, taking the listener on an emotive trip through a series of wide-open spaces - truly music to close your eyes and get lost in, revealing more layers on every listen.


Mark made all the field recordings on the isle of Anglesey - these sounds are a huge part of the album and fill it with a sense of being a part of that legendary place - he puts his feelings about it in the notes below, describing it far better that I could here.

Created on a range of analogue and digital synths and effects, combined with the location audio, Mark draws out an astonishing sound palette in his own unique way - there’s nobody quite like him and it’s such a pleasure to share this wonderful album with you.


As usual, a special long-form version of the album is presented on the physical edition.

For artwork, we chose a base of blues and green to represent the natural spaces many of the sounds originate from - the sea, skies and landscapes of Anglesey - we hope this feeling comes across and it evokes imagination of what it may have been like at that time. Made in-house with paper-making, natural dyes, mixed media, collage and analogue photography.


Huge thanks Mark for the music and being a part of the series.
