AF20 - Berber Ox - Lye

'Lye is the result of recordings made in Sydney and Tokyo between June and December 2014. Most of the finished tracks defied the will of their creator in some way. The title track started out quiet, but ended up loud. Lover of Digestibles was originally conceived as loud, but somehow got quiet. Early Worm was meant to be an exercise in Hawkwind-style space rock; first all the space disappeared, and then the rock. Cloches de Merde began as some sort of digital gamelan thing, but ended up paying homage to an old cassette recording, taken from late night radio, where some genius had mixed Martin Denny/Arthur Lyman tunes with the sounds of trains & steamships. The Quaker Astronomer somehow absorbed those discarded gamelan gestures. I take only limited responsibility for the whole thing' - David Rutledge

AF17 - The Cross Hill Recordings

'The village of Thingwall in Wirral, UK was originally called Assembly Field and dates back to the 10th century. The village and surrounding areas have a strong Viking heritage and at that time a Viking parliament was held at a piece of land known as Cross Hill. I went to Cross Hill and made a field recording of various environmental sounds and then invited artists to create a track that contained the field recording in some shape or form, the result being The Cross Hill Recordings. A big thank you to all the artists involved' - Phil Edwards

Projektions is Scottish artist Mark Knight who first started experimenting with analogue equipment while studying music at the age of 17. Over the years he has produced ambient and soundscape works that are at times haunting and melancholic. While using both analogue and digiatal platforms he includes recordings of his enviroment that add to the feel and give his music the unique sound that it holds. '#28' is his first official release and it's a pleasure to release it on Assembly Field.

AF14 - Linear Bells - Insides

The 8 pieces of 'Insides' were recorded in November 2014. I had already prepared a few frames and following contacts with Assembly Field, the 'spark' appeared because I still did not know which direction these pieces would go. So I recorded these songs in about a week, quiet, warm, in my home studio. I wanted this album to use a larger instrumental palette including such melodica, vibraphone, xylophone, while trying to get a more direct, less diluted sound, using very specific field recordings (exclusively recorded for the album). I let myself be guided by the flow by impregnating me a maximum of improvisation sessions that I had pre-recorded. The result is an album that I particularly love by his 'black beauty'. It's not a sad album, but a 'pacified' one - David Teboul
