new: DISTANT SHADOWS by Anthony Paul Kerby and Tomas Weiss
« on: January 03, 2011, 08:29:19 AM »
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
- Deep Time
- 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.

Thanks !

Very nice textures and sounds. Love the cover art. Very Steve Roach "Dynamic Stillness" like.

Comments much appreciated. Thanks.

Yes, now its pointed out, I see the graphic has a definite Dynamic Stillness look to it.
Its actually a coastal shot I took in British Columbia ... up here in canada land.
Some of you will probably find a few musical similarities to one of Steve Roach's styles too, also not a bad thing  :)

Hey, I hadn't seen this thread until now. Of course I'm going to order this...   the samples have a sort of "hollow" sound that intrigues me.

And yes, the cover art is terrific!

Distant Shadows is now being pressed and printed.
Tomas should probably have it back in a week or so.

I'll be sure to post once pre-orders are shipping.

Yep, the way we have set up the new Construct label is that Tomas will sell physical albums from Germany through el culto and I will sell the download versions through DataObscura.  The plan with Distant Shadows is to have the download available on the same day as the CD is made generally available. Tomas likes to ship out the pre-orders before making it available on his site. So should be available in March some time if everything goes well with the pressing/printing.

Thanks
