Temporary Residence has announced a new entry in Stuart Hyatt’s ongoing Field Works album series. Following last year’s Ultrasonic—which included 14 tracks from the likes of Mary Lattimore, Kelly Moran and Eluvium built from the sounds of bats’ echolocation—Hyatt’s latest production is titled Cedars and will be released on March 5. Cedars combines Americana with ambient and Middle Eastern influences, and features contributions from Marisa Anderson, Fadi Tabbal, Dena El Saffar, Danny Paul Grody, Bob Hoffnar, Tomás Lozano, Nathan Bowles, Alex Roldan, Youmna Saba, and Stuart Hyatt, as well as narration from Youmna Saba and H.C. McEntire. Hear “Ḥalaqah ’Azaliyyah (The Pasture)” below.
