New - NUNC STANS: The Unnamable
« on: July 31, 2009, 08:29:58 AM »
Now available:



Nunc Stans: The Unnamable
The Unnamable is a broad, sweeping work of often immense vistas and beatless
atmospheres. These dynamic and engaging dronescapes reveal a darker and
more intense Nunc Stans, one aimed more at transcendence than description.
Immersive and sonically rich, this release will appeal to listeners of Steve Roach
and related deep ambient drone works.

Performed by Anthony Paul Kerby using a variety of synthesisers,
acoustic guitar, and studio processing.

I received the download today, and should receive the actual disc early next week.

This is space music of the highest caliber. The key word here is DRONES; high-end drones, low-end drones, and everything in-between. The sound is crisp and clear, and the production is razor-sharp. I could often hear 5 or 6 different pitches of drone simultaneously.The sense of "space" in these compositions is quite pronounced; some sounds seem to emanate from a source many miles away. As with all of Anthony's discs, there's an amazing array of subtle and intricate detail that keeps things from getting redundant, and makes this 60 minute disc seem much shorter. I'd be surprised if anyone who likes drone didn't fall in love with this immediately, it's that good. And this is just the download, the CD will sound even better! And please use headphones. :)

I agree with Joe R on this. This is a really good release! I just got it yesterday and have already listened to it 3 times. Very enjoyable. I really like the sound of the acoustic guitar on, I think, track 3. It almost sounds like a hammered dulcimer. The attention to detail is evident on all of the tracks. Well done, Anthony.   Harry

Harry-
I'm glad someone else appreciates this disc as much as I do. It's just awesome!
...although, most of Anthony's music really strikes a chord for me, for whatever reason.

Really appreciate the feedback, guys. Many thanks !

Uhurit: I've been pushing Robert for more material for a new Winterhouse album.
With luck there could be another before the end of the year or early in the new year.

Nice review from Chuck van Zyl of Star's End:

"Out of the mere arrangement of tones Anthony Paul Kirby recording as Nunc Stans is able to conjure up distinct and evocative Ambient atmospheres. Some of the ten tracks on his CD THE UNNAMABLE are rendered in darkness, fewer in light, together bringing the listener to an interesting digital twilight of their own imagining. This music is the sonic equivalent of clouds crossing a great plain or mist rising from a dark body of water - in order to perceive and appreciate these qualities the beholder must match the activity level of their surroundings. The sounds are wonderful. They rise and recede gently, each in its own turn. Drones slowly crest as different tones touch in space to create a distinctive gradually resonating soundfield. Long deep tones roll beneath tingling high frequencies - and in between the panorama extends towards a hazy hidden horizon. Thanks to Kirby's personal language of abstraction, these beautiful soundscapes turn any quiet listening area into an all-encompassing sonic environment."

"Please tune into STAR'S END this weekend for music from the Canadian Electronic artist Nunc Stans and his new CD THE UNNAMABLE"
