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”.

    Это один из двух любимых мною музыкальных проектов из Швеции, благодаря которому я открыл для себя и полюбил этот замечательный жанр - psychill.

    I started listening to electronic music in the 1970's, groups like Tangerine Dream, Triumvirate, Jean Michel Jarre, and others, but to me, Solar Fields has got to be one of the best electronic musicians ever. His use of major chords is one thing I really like, but aside from that, he seems to just "get it." In my opinion, he has a rare and treasured gift.

    I'm totally jealous of his skills when it comes to ambience.

    Whenever you turn on the music of Magnus Birgersson it is something special. Even people who is far away from Ambient or Prog. Trance music always saying: "Wow! Such a nice music! What was that?"

    @Rakoontay: In 2016. Or in other words by quoting 'Dice': "when it's ready."
