the seven fields of aphelion
“The Crossing/Drift (Losing Light)”
Keep The Ocean Inside
What beautiful music. This is that gorgeous ambient music that takes you to a different world, similar to Eno’s Lux or Yann Tiersen’s soundtracks. Pittsburgh native (yeah, Pittsburgh) musician and songwriter Maureen “Maux” Boyle – The Seven Fields of Aphelion – has employed great patience in arriving at the perfect milieu of inspirations to complete her long-awaited sophomore album, Keep the Ocean Inside. What has come out is a simply beautiful album with a tremendous video for the first song. What the seven fields of aphelion does best is paint musical landscape for the ears. I love her work. She is a genius. I guess the best description of her music is aural photography.
