Just to let you know that my new album, Alien Genome Project is now available from

Craig Murphy is a musician, composer and producer of experimental music and a multimedia artist working with abstract music videos. Having established the rising Herb Recordings imprint in his native Scotland, Murphy's own output resembles that of a musical odyssey. An obsession with Frank Zappa has seen to a fascination with experimentation and Murphy's many projects span several genres. From the mechanistic, yet poignant electronica of Solipsism, his electro-psychedelic band shoosh with Neil Carlill and multi-instrumentalist Ed Drury, to his recent ambient outlet Murphy's distinctive sound is often abstract, yet retains a rich, melodic and emotional edge.

Alien Genome Project is Craig Murphy's latest foray into the realms of deep ambience and sonic experimentation. Based loosely on the "Panspermia" theory of life on earth being seeded from space, it's a deep and hypnotic journey from one end the universe to the other. Droning soundscapes rich in texture are laced with discreet melodies to take the listener on a rollercoaster journey, that's emotional, breathtaking and strangely reassuring. Murphy's deep understanding of sound and texture has enabled him to deliver an album that could warm the coldest reaches of deep space.

its that man Craig Murphy again this time under his guise as Weird Fields - a self described 'ambient / film soundtrack' project who not content in dividing himself between his Shoosh and Solipsism identities can be found occasionally orchestrating opining odysseys of cavernous cascades. Delicate, lonesome and hitherto monolithic these somnambulant drone-scapes swirl in frosted pirouette formations applying a stately courtship (none more so than 'distant star'). Two free to download albums to his name via Lastfm in the shape of 'a place to call home' and 'destruct science' which we thoroughly recommend that you seek out and love - for now though amid the showcase of glacial tides and sparsely drawn and effecting minimalist washes of lilting electronic symphonies we suggest you stop by at your first opportunity to sample the warming radiance of the playfully orbiting oscillations of the melting 'so long good friend' - bit of a peach by our reckoning appealing to 'magnetic fields' era Jarre and Vangelis fans alike.
