Mixtape by Chris Shields, introduction by Simon Christensen.

Copenhagen-based musician, producer and sculpturist Chris Shields, also performing under the monikers Ro, Marcel Du Swamp and in the duo Vid Edda, grew up split between Baltimore and relatives on the European continent, mostly in the Alps. As his own music draws from a wide range of sources, so does this new autumn mixtape “Leaves are changing colors, head is turning from the sun towards hands and the ground”, made for Passive/Aggressive. The mixtape reflects the sounds of Ro/Chris Shields who envelopes both noise music, musique concrète, field recordings, recorded speech, modular synthesizer systems as well as handcrafted instruments in wood.

Leaves are changing colors, head is turning from the sun towards hands and the ground. A collection of favorites to enjoy. Track list is available below.
