The Czech-Icelandic band FYIELD brings unique live experience to Washington, DC focused on climate change.

The Embassy of the Czech Republic welcomes the Czech-Icelandic band fyield for a live performance as well as presentation of the award-winning film Invisible Landscapes and discussion on climate change on November 7, 2023, at 6 pm.

The band brings together leading figures of the Czech and Icelandic independent music scene. Czech musicians Václav Havelka and Kryštof Kříček from the band Please The Trees are joined by Iceland’s Pan Thorarensen, a member of the ambient trio Stereo Hypnosis and founder of the international experimental music festival Extreme Chill, which has been held in Reykjavik since 2010.

On their debut album, Future Landscapes, fyield explores the locations used to satiate the needs of our society in terms of power consumption and nourishment, or places impacted by the exigencies of industrial society. By focusing on the sound that emanates from technological, power-generating and other entities, they testify to our existence beyond the visible.

This unique live experience will also include a screening of Invisible Landscapes, a film by Ivo Bystřičan (awarded as the best film documentary at the AFO: The 58th International Festival of Science Documentary Films, Academia Film Olomouc of Palacký University 2023). It sounds like a bird’s song, and you can't take your ears off it. But it's not – it’s just the popping bubbles of a melting glacier. A group of musicians equipped with sensitive microphones and headphones set out on an exploration. They head to places in the Czech and Icelandic countryside both marred by industry and untouched by man to discover and understand the sound of catastrophe – the sound of ongoing climate change, which in itself can be far more beautiful, and more imaginative, than what it heralds.
