Upcoming release on Construct,
a new collaborative label between el culto and DataObscura.



Anthony Paul Kerby and Tomas Weiss : Distant Shadows

Anthony Paul Kerby and Tomas Weiss are famililar names to followers of quality
ambient electronica. Anthony has many respected recordings under the names
Lammergeyer, Nunc Stans, and The Circular Ruins. Tomas most recently recorded
as Nautic Depths and El Hadra, and is especially well-known for his deep drone
work with Mathias Grassow.

Distant Shadows is their first collaboration and, as might be expected, it is something
very special. Expertly crafted, rich with detail and brooding undertones, the work is
composed as one vast and immersive journey through elaborate sonic landscapes and
northern visions of isolation, serenity, subtle powers and hidden depths.

This is the premier release on the new collaborative Construct label run by
Tomas and Anthony. el culto will provide the pressed CD release, DataObscura will
host the download release.

Titles and MP3 samples

- Distant Shadows
- Gathering Memories
- Eternal Return
- Everything That Can be Said

- Figures On A Dark Background
- A Final Vision

Expected release date is later in February.

There is now a reduced price PREORDER at the el culto portal in Germany.

Please do have a listen.
Comments and questions always welcome.

Nunc Stans : We Leave Without Speaking

Music for an imagined film.

We Leave Without Speaking is a single, 72 minute piece of expansive and
deeply involving atmospheric ambience that wanders an enigmatic world of

of the Nunc Stans legacy.

Performed by Anthony Paul Kerby, spring 2010, using various synthesisers,
guitar, treated piano, field recordings, and digital processing.


Here are some longish samples from this 72 minute work :

The Winterhouse: Sanctuary

Sanctuary, the third Winterhouse collaboration, will entrance with its deep,
flowing textures and rich expressive details. The five long pieces seem to engage
cinematically, drawing sonic vistas and sending the listener drifting on excusions
of discovery. Imagine wandering a deserted estate, darkened in the late-summer
evening by overhanging trees, and threaded with meandering pathways that offer
glimpses of a sprawling mansion glowing amber and golden in the failing light.
What memories lie forgotten in these gardens and within those walls?

Rich drone bases overlaid with strings, grainy pads, subtle melodies, and sonic
gems of many kinds.

Performed by Anthony Paul Kerby (canada) and Robert Davies (usa) using a variety
of synthesisers, with occasional field recordings and processed guitar.
Final compositions and mastering by APK.

tracks & mp3 samples:

- Secret Arrangements part 1
- Remembrance Of Things Past

Now Playing / Long Term Listening - your ambient classics
« on: January 07, 2010, 06:29:37 AM »
Brian B. recently posted in another thread:
"What's the music you've listened to with regularity over the long term?"
Which made me think this would be an excellent topic of its own.

So please post in here those electro-ambient (and related) albums you come
back to again and again, over years, or at least more than one season.
A list of personal classics, rather than recent finds.

« on: December 06, 2009, 11:52:25 AM »
Now available:



Robert Davies: Terrestre

Terrestre (of the Earth) is an interpretation of the myriad details of a dappled
and intimate earthly landscape ... an understated set of pastoral meditations
that reveal a very mature and consistent artistry.

Mesmerizing and very listenable drone based works. Sure to please fans of
Robert's earlier work, and followers of the subtle drone tradition passing
through Mathias Grassow, Oophoi, and Alio Die.

This release also brings a change in style and packaging for DataObscura releases.
The CD case is now an unbreakable poly case, still with a spine and readable album
title that is so important for shelf storage. The insert has a new and improved graphic
design. We think you will enjoy the new changes.

tracks & mp3 samples:

- Under Thick Foliage
- Dense Elements
- Soil Organics
- Perpetual Adaptation
- Between The Crevices
- The Shifting Moon
- Suspended In Light

Nunc Stans and Mystified: One Thousand Dreams
A collaboration between Nunc Stans (Anthony Paul Kerby, Canada)
and Mystified (Thomas Park, USA)

An immersive set of richly detailed dreamscapes that flow and shift with
a sophisticated ease and engaging lyric beauty. Expect a haunting mix of
grainy drone, sonic curiosities and occasional treated field recording, all
bound together by exquisite drawn-out melodic lines.

The origin of this work is a set of long drone pieces crafted by Thomas from
recordings of sferics (electrical discharges in the atmosphere). These flowing
treated noise pieces then served as the basis for Anthony's more synth-based
accompaniments and sonic embellishments.

tracks & mp3 samples:

- This Infinite Night     (a second sample)
- One Thousand Dreams part 1
- One Thousand Dreams part 2 
- The Path Between 
- Now Open Your Eyes
- Final Resting Place
