Like some of the best ambient music, its sound shifts so gradually that a casual listener will miss elements being introduced.

Exclaim!

On Infinite Moment, the Field proves that he's such a master of his craft that he can generate the same excitement from briefly moving outside the box as he can revelling back inside it.

The Line of Best Fit

While Infinite Moment shares all of what we love about Willner, from the sleek production to its all-encompassing ambient, techno groove, one thing’s certain: he has an innate ability of gifting stunningly unorthodox dance club tracks.

Pitchfork

The Swedish producer takes the long view on his fifth album full of drifting compositions that knit together twin feelings of melancholy and hope.

AllMusic

The perpetually unraveling nature of Infinite Moment results in a perfectly paced listening experience that's almost impossible not to get lost in.

PopMatters

The sheer repetition of the Field's music on Infinite Moment lures you in, but it's the quality of what's happening in these dense mixes that makes you stay, that allows you see the forest for the tree.

Under The Radar

Over Infinite Moment's six tracks and one hour running time, Willner makes small shifts in mood from track to track, without ever really letting up the overall feeling of peace and joy that washes over you.

The 405

Repetitiveness is Willner’s job, but Infinite Moment assures its not just another day at the office for him. It might not be the ideal starting place for those unfamiliar with The Field (should you be wondering, going in order is your safest bet), but it’s a worthy continuation of one of the most reliable discographies in our time.

Spectrum Culture

Like the jitteriest compositions of Tim Hecker, the music of Infinite Moment piles sound upon sound until the sheer wall of volume seems to become more space than noise. The title hits the nail on the head, these are sounds that erase the passage of time.

Tiny Mix Tapes

It is a window, opening, in the midst of something vast. It is the sound of the cosmos inside of us, being recycled.

Truly mood dependent, and quiet in its world building.
Try a quiet night when you can't sleep, I assure you it will be a vastly more moving listen than listening to this when the tv static of the day keeps eating at your attention, this world is so small, it shifts are so subtle but done so wonderfully. This is The Field really key-ing into his sound, and while it isn't some massive deviation of sound from his prior works, it adds another planet to his discography of sound which all seem to ... read more

Axel Willner returns to his Field alias once again, and it’s certainly seems to be business as usual for the most part. The beats are super minimal and seemingly alien, and some of the grooves and beats have this way of washing over you and sticking with you long after they’re over. But Axel this time seemingly is darker and working with a more abrasive sound than ever. Seemingly channeling everyone from Tim Hecker to GAS to Blanck Mass, Axel sounds just as adventurous as ever. ... read more
