Description: Composer and guitarist Scott Fields (b. 1956), alongside his work with mobile-like formal structures and rigorous, often guided, improvisations for large ensemble, has worked extensively on the creative use of text for composition.  Most recently, he released Samuel on New World Records.  The three compositions are based on a short monologue and two late pantomimes of Samuel Beckett.  In his first New World podcast, he talks from his home in Cologne, Germany about the winding path from his youth in Chicago to his present work in Germany as an expatriate.  He also provides some insight into the "songs without words" that make up his New World release.
