NEW : Nunc Stans + free EP on dataObscura
« on: February 08, 2008, 01:40:23 PM »
---------------------------------------------------------
A couple of excellent new things available on DataObscura
---------------------------------------------------------

- Nunc Stans: Ellesmere Island -- this is a free download  EP, with graphics.

- Nunc Stans: Timeless -- a new album.



Both releases contain rich and flowing drone-scapes, cut through with glacial undertones
and fascinating details. A product of far north geography and the immensity, and isolation,
of that landscape. Another deep and complex sonic delight from Canada.

There are lots of samples, and the EP is of course freely available for download.

- The EP is AVAILABLE HERE
- And the new Album and samples are AVAILABLE HERE

OR

You can also directly download the EP with THIS LINK, its 35 megs.


Many thanks.

Very impressed by the samples and the EP.

Ordered... :)
There is no spoon. Which sucks because I have a pudding cup.

Very impressed by the samples and the EP.

I agree! Wonderful sounds, and as usual, gorgeous artwork- I love that bluish-greenish-grayish hue. Must order this...

I haven't heard the "Ellesmere Island" download yet, but I'm really liking the "Timeless" disc. Has a lazy, distant, and mysterious feeling that pulls me right in. And great, expansive atmospheres that leave me feeling a bit nostalgic for something or someplace that I can't even name...  "Timeless" is an accurate description as well as an appropriate title for this. Wonderful stuff, and highly recommended!

I'd be quick and have a go at Ellesmere Island, Joe. It's like the Nunc Stans you already know, but submerged deeper in shadows and fog and a grainier undulant backdrop that, for me, has traces of the British Dronemeisters (TM) we discussed late last year in its sonic architecture  :)

I listened to it late last night, Alan, and I know what you mean. It's moody and murky, and has a subtle, repetitive "groove" in it that reminds me a little of Monos. This Nunc dude, whoever he may be  ;), has put together quite an evocative landscape.

Good spot on the Monos undertones, Joe-ski. Methinks this er... Uncle Stan chappie has excelled himself here... whoever he may be ;)

Phew! Drama! He's Out!

APK *IS* Nunc Stans <throaty sub-bass movie trailer delivery>

"Nunc Stans releases were anonymous releases until February 2008, at which point the style had grown closer to Anthony's other projects and it became obvious to many that he was the author." (www.dataobscura.com/APK/bio.htm) [my italics, underlining and bolding]

We appear to be so uber-influential as to constitute "many", Joe ;)

oh so it's finally official. i knew it since the cerulean suite. some of your best work has been made under this moniker imho. i always wondered what the secrecy was for. embarrased by your own productivity? :)

hi Danny !
good to see you over here. Glad to hear you've been enjoying some of my Nunc Stans.
The anonymous thing was simply in the hope that people would listen with new ears and not expect anything in particular.

I remember hearing Robert Fripp at a live talk stressing that 'Expectation is the prison of attention.'
It's a good point.

yeah it's good, but probably more relevant for a widely known artist only releasing one studio-album every couple of years. ;) when cerulean suite came out i was thrilled to discover your versatility as a producer, but then also a bit disheartened to discover you wanted to keep it secret.

im glad to see you're out of the closet with this one, but hope you'll keep making music i don't expect you to do.
