Two new releases on Infraction by the Celer. 

CELER - Discourses of the Withered CD (INFX 028) Edition of 500.
CELER - The Everything and the Nothing CD (INFX 036) Edition of 300.
Celer is a husband (Will) and wife (Danielle) duo from California that use a variety of strings as the basis for their sound. Cello, viola, violin and the sounds are mixed in with field recordings, choir. live theremin and then tape spliced and re-assembled in varying lengths to create a loop base. Those sounds are then sampled, layered and processed. The result is a shimmering orchestra. Periods of silence between the notes only enhance the sound. Though at times very haunting, it's brightly hazy ambient. Initially "Discourses..." was to be 1 full-length CD with a bonus CDR ("The Everything and the Nothing") to accompany the first 100 copies. When Celer presented the bonus material, with field recordings mixed in obtained by Danielle over several months in India, the quality of the material was so high that it was suggested and agreed to instead be a concurrent release of two full-length discs.

I also received some restocks of Celer CDR releases.  I usually only get a handful every couple of months.  Not surprising, as
I think they record appx. 23 hours a day.  Who has time for handmade packaging?
