ONTOFIELD - "Moon Handed"
Ontofield was created by John Graham, who had the original idea and wrote, played, sung, programmed and recorded all of Ontofield's output to date. Ontofield is a made up word that was created from the idea that we all create our own realities. The "Ontofield" is a description of the collection or "field" of possible and potential realities that surrounds us all, from which our own little "realities" are drawn together and so, "exist". Of course, that is just an idea though.... 0ntofield was not intended to be an adverb or "a direction" from a person with a Yorkshire accent. However, if that sounds like a more reasonable and sensible meaning for you, that's fine too. There are a number of themes that are very prevalent in Ontofield's music. These are based around exploring what we come to feel is our own "reality" and why we exist in the first place. Also, the pervasive dominance of belief in our lives and how these things are manipulated by ourselves and others: How these things restrict and limit us in our perception of ourselves, our potential, other people and the reality that we think exists around us. This and the scale of deception and the "Manufacturing of Consent" are sources of endless passionate interest, at least they are to Ontofield... Well, that and sausages.
