Stuart Hyatt is a Grammy-nominated artist and musician who creates interdisciplinary creative projects in the public realm. His current work turns audio field recordings into music, releasing collaborative albums under the Field Works name. This body of work is now available in a 7-album box set from the Brooklyn-based record label Temporary Residence LTD. A companion listener’s guide has been published by the Dutch imprint Jap Sam Books.
Hyatt’s projects follow rigorous conceptual frameworks - incorporating scientific data and field work - but present themselves through simple pop and folk aesthetics. The goal is to tell evocative stories about marginalized communities, at-risk species and habitats, and our complicated relationship with the natural world.
Hyatt is a National Geographic Explorer and the founder of Team Records. He is a member of M12 Studio, the arts collective known for work that examines contemporary rural aesthetics, landscapes, and communities. Hyatt also works independently via commission as Stuart Hyatt Studio, LLC. He lives in Indianapolis.
