Biography

Sweden (2001 – present)

Solar Fields is the music project of Magnus Birgersson, a music composer and graphic designer from Sweden. He built a unique sound universe by exploring the wide possibilities of , atmospheric, deep, ecstatic, industrial yet organic, cultivating contrasts and subtlety with brio. Before starting Solar Fields in 2001, Magnus has been involved in many projects since a teenager, playing drums, percussion, piano, keyboards, for various bands.

As a “high tech” sound designer (sampling, sequencing, morphing, programming) and multi-instrumentalist (sitar, veena, guitars), Magnus collaborated with several art galleries and museums. His latest sound installation at Trabekel (Sandviken, Spring 2004) met a great success: in synchronization to the work of pictorial artist Antonio Sognasoldi, he presented four pieces which could be played simultaneously and evolve depending on the position of the visitor in the gallery.

Magnus Birgersson signed with Ultimae Records and released in 2001 his debut album, Reflective Frequencies. In November 2005, the two albums Leaving Home and Extended were released, the latter being a limited edition. These albums are receiving excellent comments from the media, opening new horizons for Magnus and his true visionary work.

Next Solar Fields’ album was EarthShine, issued in 2007. It was followed in 20 January 2009 by Movements. This album contains his most popular track, “Sol”.

    It doesn't matter whether you proceed with 'Reflective Frequencies', 'Random Friday', The 'RGB'-Collection or anything between, they are all very nice.

    By the way, congratulations to the individuals who put the tags "wedding" and "funeral" for the track "Until We Meet the Sky" :) There is no better way to describe it...

    I really enjoy 'Leaving Home'. Where should I go from here? I like the more ambient materials over some of the more bleepbloop fusion.

    Is it insulting to say "I like to fall asleep to your music?" I hope not.

    The only purpose for which I was born was to listen to "Until We Meet the Sky".

    RGB is phenomenal. How is Magnus able to be at once so prolific and so damn good?!

    @ Firestar1997 ~ Not sure ... Props, but I think that perhaps the postfix should stay, given that Magnus has just launched his new label Droneform Records with these Superb releases ~ RGB ~ and keeping the postfix would also help show support for his new venture <3 ;) :) :)
