    Chromatic Fields is the fruit of a world of relationships. The relationships between the sound of a piano, the space of a blank page, silence and emptiness, color and sound.
    The chromatic sound fields of Jamie Crofts, the result of a profound exploration of the relationship between composer and performer, between written score and listener, correspond with the visual works of Duncan Bullen. Each translates to the other.
    Bullen's work is naturally essential and absolute. His expressive field, alien to the pictorial description, even to the abstract one, is expressed in the primordial materiality of the purest gesture and color.
    Here, the element that unites sound and vision in this work is precisely that of attention. An attention that also requires a deep participation of its audience, both viewer and listener, and that invites us to explore this world of relationships by prompting unique emotions.

    Composed and played by Jamie Crofts.
