Worn

Robert Farrugia

'Worn' was written in the summer of 2019 and was recorded using a Yamaha MT3X multitrack cassette recorder.
The cassette tape itself was an old cassette tape which I used to record voice memos on when I was little.

The recording process involved the recording of several sketches, which I then revisited and overdubbed every week over the course of 2019's summer.

In many ways, this album has been turning in my head since 2015, when my studies took me to Finland.
During this period, my roommate and I found this dead fox in the snow, taking this photograph.
Since then I've found myself thinking about the grass and the fox, and the dead fox and the grass, and how beautiful their colours both were. Sometimes it seems to me that life's a process of wearing and of being worn, and, just like the tape, in many ways my process began back then, with the fox and its colours.
I'd like to thank my girlfriend, my family, my friends, who've helped me be better.

Heartfelt thanks goes to Brose and Samwel for the constant constructive feedback.
Thank you also to Andrea for making this release possible.

Robert Farrugia is a composer from Malta who has released through labels such as Assembly Field, Post Global Recordings, Batenim and more recently Spanish imprint Archives. Robert is a classically trained pianist although his earlier work saw him produce experimental guitar-based music before returning to focus more on piano recordings in 2013.
Citing Ólafur Arnalds, Stars of the Lid and Taylor Deupree as his major influences, Robert’s work usually starts off with small motifs which are layered with a largely improvisational approach.
