After Life 30:24


As the conclusion album to PLAYFIELD’s three-album trilogy project, After Life, offers a retrospective. As the eight-part group reaches a denouement, they find themselves in the sound where “listening meets improvisation meets music-making,” focusing on spacious soundscapes and quiet, somber interludes. The trilogy was recorded outside in Brooklyn, on a chilly Autumn day, incorporating the architecture, the people, and the somber feeling of a pandemic in a singular city. Here, the musicians (Daniel Carter on Horns and Reeds, Luisa Muhr singing, Ayumi Ishito on Saxophone, Eric Plaks on Nord piano, Aron Namenwirth on Guitar, Yutaka Takahashi on Guitar, Zach Swanson on Bass, and Jon Panikkar on Drums) gesture towards something mysterious, sophisticated and earnest, towards a grieving city and its ever-forward motion. PLAYFIELD’s three albums will be offered online and in an exclusive, limited-edition CD pressing of 50.
