The National Road, the debut album by the FIELD WORKS collective, is built around Stuart Hyatt's original audio field recordings made along a single street in Indianapolis. Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities provides the narrative framework as hundreds of fleeting moments are assembled into a sprawling sonic landscape.
The album features collaborations with Lali Puna, B. Fleischmann, Nick Zammuto, Lullatone, Daring Ear, Player Piano, Forrest Lewinger, and Prototokyo. Gatefold Vinyl LP includes a 28-page book richly illustrated by Nathaniel Russell. The first in a trilogy from the Indy Sound Map.
