“It’s that sensation of awe-inspired tranquility that guides the music on this disc, one of distant horizons and airy, windswept melodies. The duo harness a palette of sounds that are refreshingly organic in this age of industrialization.” 4 STARS - Downbeat

Welcome to ENDLESS FIELD GATHERING, an experiential outdoor music program designed to help musicians expand their horizons.

Together, we’ll bring our instruments into nature, creating opportunities to listen, compose, record and perform in a fun and supportive environment.

For the last decade, our music has led us into incredible wild spaces around the world and has encouraged us to listen more deeply, tuning into the sounds and voices we find within ourselves and in the world around us. What we’ve learned through these experiences has made a powerful impact on our creative lives, and we’re excited to share some of what we’ve discovered.

At ENDLESS FIELD GATHERING, we will guide participants through listening and songwriting exercises, culminating in the production of an original audio and video recording.

We’ll demonstrate how we record in nature using our remote recording studio. We’ll also share our process of capturing video footage. We’ll work together, filming on location, to create a music video for your song, all the while providing insights in composition, arranging and production.

GATHERING is open to musicians of all kinds and experience levels and we also welcome lyricists, writers, visual artists, dancers, videographers and audio engineers - anyone who might be interested in contributing to our unique method of remote recording.

We believe your community will find deep connections through this joyful experience.

What will your gathering look like?



Endless Field (Biophilia Records) is an instrumental guitar and bass duo featuring guitarist Jesse Lewis and bassist Ike Sturm. They play original songs filled with intricate finger-style lines, improvisation and ambient textures. Drawing on inspiration from nature, the duo seeks to bring music to outdoor spaces, encouraging audiences to explore their own frontiers.

Endless Field has toured internationally in Europe, Scandinavia, and across the U.S., performing at Lincoln Center, the United Nations, and live on NPR's Echoes Radio. Volunteer activities have involved Riverkeeper sweeps, Habitat for Humanity, university residencies and river cleanup projects. They have collaborated with jazz luminaries such as Sara Caswell, Theo Bleckmann, Nadje Noordhuis, Ingrid Jensen and Donny McCaslin. Endless Field produces an annual benefit concert in New York City for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) called “LIVING EARTH”, which has featured world-class ensembles led by Catherine Russell, Dave Douglas, Camila Meza and Fabian Almazan.

Endless Field released ‘Alive in the Wilderness’ in the summer of 2020 on Biophilia Records. The album was recorded live in the Utah wilderness using a solar battery-powered mobile recording studio. National Geographic photographers and videographers documented their epic adventure and all album proceeds are being donated to the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Their most recent adventure in summer of 2023 brought them to Denali National Park in the Alaskan wilderness to record an album created live on mountains and glaciers. They brought engineers to capture video and audio in these extreme regions of the planet, hiking all gear and instruments into the wild and rugged recording environments. Album coming 2024.
