What is Patterned Air Recordings?

early electronics | old techno | classroom composition | sleep music | general eeriness | weird things

We are a record label interested in weird things. We like analogue synths, reel-to-reel machines, Radiophonics, music for children, music for falling to sleep by, early electronic experiments, folkloric eeriness, seances, electronic voice phenomenon, old techno, deteriorated music — in a nutshell, soundtracks to get us off this mundane plain and into an elevated, if creaky, state of euphoria.

We’re very proud and positively ecstatic to release two brilliant albums today. CukoO‘s ‘Woodland Walk’ is an analogue electronics and 1970’s classroom instrument field trip through a woodland wonderland. Whilst RunningOnAir‘s eponymous ‘Running On Air’ is a detailed and taut 1990’s techno album that is shot through with lingering post-Cold-War-paranoia. Classic albums in the making.

GHOST BOX LOGO ASSEMBLED MINDSAssembled Minds is stoked to announce Ghost Box are now stocking ‘Creaking Haze’ in their guest shop. We couldn’t be happier.


It’s available here: Assembled Minds at Ghost Box


“The Assembled Minds is the work of Matt Saunders, formerly one half of Magnétophone (4AD). It’s a brilliant distillation of lost nights out and the ghosts of dead raves. Like the sounds in your head the day after, when you’re vainly attempting to sleep, but the rhythm won’t stop. Brilliant misremembered rave flashbacks.”

-Jim Jupp, Ghost Box Records
