AF28 - Ghost Signals

Sebastian Buccheri (AKA Jazzdefector)
Paul Randall (AKA Microvolt, Tesla Coil 321, Blue On Silver)
Mastered by Jeff Appleton
Ghost Signals started when Sebastian and Paul discovered each other's music on soundcloud in 2012. There was talk of a collaboration and after an exchange of files the EP Lullabies For Insomniacs was released on Somehow recordings in 2013. 2016 sees the release of their first full length album on Assembly Field.
Ghostly sounds, shimmering guitars and haunting keyboards combine and collide to create an album of lost soundtracks, fragments of past memories and vague nostalgia; Ghost Signals drifting out of forgotten speakers.

AF26 - DR - In Love With Magnetic Tape

About 'In Love With Magnetic Tape' - 'Using my synthesizer I created some layers for a drone piece and then spontaneously decided (as I se my Fostex 4-track in front of my synth) to make some tape loops. I then added some melody fragments, mixing, finished. I usually do my music like this, spontaneously and improvised. I just need the right mood and some coffee' - Dominic Razlaff

AF24 - Gary Bromley - Outside

Assembly Field is very pleased to release an EP of improvised dub tracks by Gary Bromley (Dif Juz).
'I tried to keep as close to improv as much as I could with recording and mixing all tracks done in one take. Over the years I believe that improv is the purest form of music and creation close to the oneness of the universe, any mistakes or error makes the music human. The simplicity of this music is a mantra I bring forth from my inner self to the universe' - Gary Bromley

AF23 - Robert Farrugia - Half-Light

'Half-Light was written and recorded between the Spring and Summer of 2015. The album consists mainly of an amalgamation of textures created by a virtual analogue synth and a Weinbach Upright Piano. First few tracks entail minimalistic guitars reverberating coherently with ethereal timbres, these will later on develop into piano-oriented motifs. Half-Light closes off with synth textures blended together with field-recordings creating a soothing soundscape. All songs written, arranged, performed, mixed, mastered and produced by Robert Farrugia. Special thanks go to Samwel Mallia & Ben Mifsud Joslin for the constant feedback given throughout all stages of this particular release. Album art by Luke Azzopardi, photograph taken during the Summer of 2013 at Mellieħa, Malta. Thank you goes to Phil Edwards of Assembly Field. Thank you for listening.' – Robert Farrugia
