Early Fern, an ambient artist from New York, USAIs a cassette released in June 2024 from the ambient label Aural Canyon in Texas, the same country.

Contains four post-New Age ambient songs created during his last two years as a farmer. DL code included.

Previous workIs also recommended.

The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"I started creating the Memory Garden during my last season as a farmer, doing repetitive tasks every day, spending a lot of time with plants and insects, observing the weather, and immersing myself in it. Five years later, the song reflects my experience of spending a lot of time with mechanical farm equipment (plowing/planting) and observing life around me. After that painful experience, I made the difficult decision to quit farming. I continued to work on this music, and the songs (as most of my creative work does) are based on my own memories and my own. This music became a process of reflecting on my emotional state and making connections between sounds and all of these experiences. It's a song about a person who surrenders to nostalgia, cultivates introspection, and creates a kind of transcendent experience in human life while being troubled by ordinary joys, sorrows, hardships, poverty, and rural solitude. I'm trying to get it out."

Artist statement:

"Memory Garden began during my final season as a farm worker, and because of this the songs are informed by the experience of doing repetitive tasks every day, spending lots of my time with plants and insects, watching and being in the weather, spending lots of my time with mechanical farm equipment (cultivating/planting), trying to spend some of my time observing the life around me. After five years and too many hard experiences, I made the difficult decision to leave farming. I continued to work on this music, and the songs transformed (as most of my creative work does) into a process of looking back into my memories and reflecting on my emotional states and making connections between the sounds and all these experiences. This music is about being a person surrounded by bugs and worms, light and air, soil and compost, snow, fog, and rain. It's about giving in to nostalgia, cultivating reflection, and trying to create some kind of transcendent experience of human life while beset by mundane joys, sorrows, hardship , poverty, and rural isolation."
