Les Disques Du Crépuscule
“Signals Into Space” is a brand new studio album by acclaimed electronic duo Ultramarine. “Signals Into Space“is their seventh album, having made their debut on Les Disques Du Crépuscule with “Folk” (TWI 894) back in 1990.
Released in January 2019, the new long player was conceived by Ian Cooper and Paul Hammond over a three year period and features four songs co-written with North American musician Anna Domino, a firm favourite of the group since her leftfield pop releases on Crépuscule and Factory in the 1980s. “For this project we wanted to do something more ambitious and perhaps more accessible than our last album in 2013,” explains Paul. “We were keen to start collaborating with other musicians again, as well as develop our method of performance-based writing and recording, which is partly improvised.”
“Signals Into Space” also features contributions from saxophonist Iain Ballamy (ECM, Food, Loose Tubes) and percussionist & vibraphone player Ric Elsworth. It was recorded and mixed in London with Andy Ramsay (Stereolab) and mastered by Noel Summerville.
