ABOUT “fyield/Future Landscapes” 

The Czech-Icelandic collaboration fyield is touring the US for the very first time from fall 2023 through winter 2024. On their debut album, Future Landscapesfyield explores the European locations related to power consumption, food production, and other industries. The musicians accompanied by field recordists, Sara Pinheiro of Portugal and Magnús Bergsson of Iceland, visited eight locations in the Czech Republic and Iceland. With the help of special instruments such as hydrophones, geophones and electromagnetic sensors, their combined recordings and music compositions bring us close to, or inside, the organs of geothermal, hydroelectric or coal-fired power plants, an aquaponic farm, melting glaciers, and an oil well. The Czech Republic and Iceland represent countries with contrasting approaches to CO2 production. 

 

This unique live experience will also include a screening of Invisible Landscapesa film by Ivo Bystřičan (awarded as the best film documentary at the AFO: The 58th International Festival of Science Documentary Films, Academia Film Olomouc of Palacký University 2023). They head to places in the Czech and Icelandic countryside both marred by industry and untouched by man to discover and understand the sound of catastrophe – the sound of ongoing climate change, which in itself can be far more beautiful, and more imaginative, than what it heralds.  

 

EVENT DETAILS: 

This festival of music and film includes artists from Iceland, Czech Republic, Portugal and Venezuela combined with local artists and aims to expand our understanding of the sonic landscape, the climate moment and experience the world through the sounds of nature and human industry.  


Sonic Faultlines Festival is made possible through the generous support of Sacred Roots. 

The fyield/Invisible Landscapes tour is supported by the Czech Recovery Grant. 

RIPE AREA is created by American River Conservancy and Myrtle Tree Arts. The project  is funded in part by the California Arts Council, a State agency, and funded in part by the Capital Region Creative Corps of the Sacramento Office of Arts and Culture, with support from the City of Sacramento.
