Adam Fielding is a UK-based electronic music producer and composer.

History[edit]

Starting in 1995, Fielding began writing music using a combination of an Atari STe computer running Protracker software. Although this started out as more of a hobby to support his interest in games programming, his interest in music led him to start experimenting further with tracker music in 1997/98.[1] His developing interest in music led to him studying a BSc in music production at the University of Huddersfield in 2005. While studying at university, he began to incorporate more live instrumentation into his music.[2] In 2008 he released his debut LP (Distant Activity) independently.[3]

Following this independent release, Fielding released a free online single in 2009 (From Out Of Nowhere),[4] followed by another single in 2010 (Lost In Silence) through the social network record label solarSwarm.[5]

Fielding released a second album in 2010 (Lightfields).[6] Following the release of Lightfields, both Distant Activity and Lightfields were signed to and re-distributed through Distinctive Records.[7][8] In 2012 he released an album of selected ambient works (And All Is As It Should Be) through Lost Language Recordings, featuring original tracks and re-workings of existing material in a more cinematic style.[9] This was followed by an album of instrumental tracks written for film, TV, and games (Chase The Light), which was released in 2012 through FiXT.[10]

Fielding re-united with Distinctive Records in 2013 to release the full-length album Icarus,[11] which was preceded by a single of the same name[12] featuring The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
