She may be a member of Black Moth Super Rainbow, but there is no disjointed staggering dance beats to be found on “Periphery”. What we have here is a mind fuck of swirling synthesizers augmented with lush piano fills that glide gently over the astral plane. Or is it nature's purgatory? “Periphery”s' cuts dart effortlessly between what sounds like the first breaths of life and those last fleeting moments before everything collapses, but this is no sinister purgatory. We are talking about those true serene moments of bliss, be it smelling the first flowers of spring or witnessing wild animals playing in a foreign field that you just came across. But the flowers will eventually blow away, and the animals will get spooked and head somewhere else. Everything lives in cycles. The snake is constantly eating its tail and Seven Fields has provided the soundtrack for these moments. “Periphery” doesn't fall so far from the trees of Eno's Ambient series or what Oneohtrix Point Never is currently exploring. Pastoral ambient passages that take you to another place and time - be it temporarily or forever.
“Periphery” is also beautiful accompanied by a series of mutli-exposured photographs by Seven Fields. The delicate execution and selection is the perfect pairing for the enclosed music. 8/10 -- Darryl Norsen (10 February, 2010)
