Try this: file t.S

{module, t}.  %% version = 0

{exports, [{go,0},{module_info,0},{module_info,1}]}.

{attributes, []}.

{labels, 3}.

{function, go, 0, 2}.

Compile with erlc +no_postopt t.S

And spawn some processes in the shell like this:
spawn(fun() -> t:go() end).

Let me know how far you get.

It's not necessarily a bad idea to target beam-assembler but the assembler
is highly tuned for the Erlang language .. or rather the Core language.
