Electric Fields is an Aboriginal Australian electronic music duo made up of vocalist Zaachariaha Fielding and keyboard player and producer Michael Ross. Electric Fields combine modern electric-soul music with Aboriginal culture and sing in Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara and English.
Launching in 2015, Electric Fields’ exceptional trajectory saw them invited to perform in China, Scotland, and New Zealand within the first six months; and by the end of their first year, they had headlined shows around Australia.
Electric Fields have been recipients of many awards In and in 2019 were honoured with eight awards, were finalists for another seven awards, including an ARIA for Best Live Band and were named a close second for Eurovision – Australia Decides.
Their lineup of performances have included playing at the Australian Open, the AFL Grand Final, performing in Los Angeles for the AAA Gala Event, and playing in Central Park New York as a part of Sounds Australia.
Their outstanding musical output includes multiple commissions – having composed for several films; producing an award-winning piece for ABC KIDS TV; composing for VIVID at the Sydney Opera House, broadcast across the harbour; and composing for the Sydney City Council, for a live and national television broadcast of the NYE celebrations in 2019.
Most recently, a 30-minute Electric Fields composition, created for the extraordinary work Electric Skies, became an award-winning event for Fringe Festival 2023.
