Celer
Shima

Will Long is an American artist living in Tokyo who has been releasing music for over a decade and also runs the Two Acorns label. 'Shima', his latest release as Celer, is comprised of two long-form analogue ambient/drone tracks constructed from B-side loops created around the same period as Celer's 'Jima' album which was released on the I, Absentee label in 2015. 'Shima' however was only actually recorded later in 2016 using the tape loops, reel-to-reel, reverse reverb, notch filter and digital delay. The album comes beautifully presented on fledgeling label Gailur.

Celer
Xièxie

Lovely LP of drone/ambient pieces from Will Long aka Celer here. Xièxie documents the American artist’s travels in China, and field recordings from his time moving around the country add atmosphere to these evocative soundscapes. The glacial pace and watery beauty of the tracks on Xièxie recall Fennesz.

Celer
Memory Repetitions

Coming to a letterbox or collection depot near you: it’s Celer, the reliably ambient and ambiently reliable work of Tokyo resident Will Long - someone whose surname accurately describes his discography. This is a muscular five-parter - one lengthy part per disc - aimed to reflect back on the Celer story so far. Highly recommended to fans of Celer.

Celer
Nacreous Clouds

By way of celebrating its ten-year anniversary we have a lovely remastered reissue package of Celer's 2008 album Nacreous Clouds. Recorded by Will Long and Danielle Baquet in response to inspiration in the form of a peculiar meteorological phenomenon: polar stratospheric clouds. These bright and vivid formations can be observed from below -- usually found at polar extremities, at very low temperatures high above the Earth. Long's third album was recorded both digitally and using tape loops. CD remastered by Stephan Matthieu and with new artwork in a 4-panel, reverse board ecopack, on Two Acorns.

Will Long
Sallow / Pine

Will Long’s politically engaged deep house music is back in the form of his new album Long Trax 2, which continues the habit of mixing samples from the likes of Barack Obama with meditative, melancholy pads and beats. Sallow / Pine is one of three 12” versions of the album’s material, featuring two cuts in fully DJ-ready format. On Smalltown Supersound.

Will Long
Maroon / Pink

Will Long, who makes luscious ambient drone under the name Celer and gorgeous deep house under his own name (and sometimes in collaboration with DJ Sprinkles), presents a second full-length album of politically charged dancefloor cuts, which is also available as a series of 12”s, like the Maroon / Pink disc we see here before us. Features ‘That’s The Way It Goes’ and ‘ We Tend To Forget’.

Will Long
Royal Blue / Mustard

Will Long’s politically engaged deep house music is back in the form of his new album Long Trax 2, which is released in full on CD and also in parts across three 12”s. Royal Blue / Mustard is perhaps the most unusual in terms of the colours chosen, and it features the Barack Obama-sampling ‘Nothing’s Changed’. On Smalltown Supersound.

Celer
I Love You So Much I Can't Even Title This

Celer created I Love You So Much I Can’t Even Title This in 2008, using both analogue (tape) and digital (laptop) processing to utterly transform original sounds and samples of Samuel Barber’s compositions alike. Distant-sounding ambience with a weighty emotional heft to it: delicate and huge at the same time. Double LP on Infraction.

Celer
On or Near the Surface

Will Long returns under his Celer moniker for this release -- in fact it's a bonus track from his 'Alcoves' album. On or Near the Surface is representative of Long's shadow-filtered work as Celer; sun-dappled ambient reigns supreme, chords refracted as shafts of light penetrating cool, clear shallows at a lake's edge. However, all is not as it first seems... On 'pale white' 7" square flexi.

Celer
Alcoves

Celer is Will Long’s long-running ambient drone project, a reliable source of pleasing soundscapes and luscious minimalism. Alcoves finds our Will in a particularly watery mood, mixing synths and field recordings together with sublime precision. Alcoves is a cassette release on Cellar Door Tapes.

Celer
In the End You'll Just Disappear

Fair enough. This was made by Will Long in Tokyo as part of an installation of three speakers facing the centre of the room. Each speaker played a different part (high end or low end) which meant that the music should be perfectly mixed if you stood in the centre of the room. Now you can hear the whole thing on your very own CD player. 

Celer & Machinefabriek
Greetings From

Two drone geniuses get together and improvise their way through a bunch of live performances, then set their exemplary work down for Greetings From. Celer and Machinefabriek used their improvised, free form approach to playing together as a way of producing the strangest results possible for their music, and they offer it to us here in a gorgeous packaging of postcards and photos.

Celer
Two Days and One Night

Ambient musics can sometimes be accused of being too abstracted from human experience and emotion, but nobody could make that criticism of Celer’s new album. Two Days And One Night is inspired by the death by drowning of Celer’s great uncle in Tunisia: a retracing of his steps during his final days (and night). The depth of feeling and the depth of sound swirl together majestically...  Out on Sequel.

Celer
Another Blue Day

Celer is Will Long’s long-running ambient drone project, a reliable source of pleasing soundscapes and luscious minimalism. Another Blue Day, which seems to be alluding to Brian Eno with it’s title, is a good-sized slab of rich Celer magic, released on Jason Lescalleet’s reliable Glistening Examples imprint.

Celer
Callisto

Deep, deep ambience from Will Long’s project Celer. New album Callisto draws inspiration from two memories of ‘seeing beyond the stars’, a suitably heavyweight setting for a suite of dream-drift and space-shimmer like this one. One long forty-six minute track will draw you all the way in. CD release on Two Acorns.

Celer
Sky Limits

'Sky Limits' provides true ambient soundscapes that ease in and out of frame like Stars of the Lid, but more hints of the real world filter through via eclectic samples and field recordings that sound reminiscent of Godspeed's 'Lift Yr Skinny Fists'. Celer have made a beautiful, tranquil record to set your own experiences to, but do occasionally remind you of where he's coming from too. 

Celer
Tempelhof

Tempelhof is touring music, as you can see from the track titles identifying where and when Celer made each piece. Certainly, there is a transitory, shifting feel to some of this material: droning ambience like the background music to the non-places encountered while travelling. Edition of 300 CDs on Two Acorns.

Celer
Akagi

Celer, continued as a solo project since 2009 by Will Long, continues to create long, warming ambient drone. Akagi was produced for a live yoga event and consists of two reel-to-reels overlapping looped chords. With very minimal changes put on the two elements’ volume and filters throughout, the piece forms a constant, and at the event Long witnessed many people actually falling asleep.

Celer
Inside the Head of Gods

Twenty odd minutes of gentle organ music by acclaimed ambient sorts Celer to accompany an exhibition of the pantings of Taichi Kondo for his exhibition 'What's my name?' at Finale Art File in Manila, Philippines. Pressed onto a simple CD made in an edition of 300 for you to enjoy possibly whilst perusing the paintings. 

Celer & Machinefabriek
Compendium

This is a Compendium of three 7” singles released in limited quantities by the grouping together of Celer and Machinefabrik. Added to those explorative electronic tracks is a new one from them, and remixes from fellow travellers Stephan Mathieu, Sylvain Chauveau and Nicolas Bernier. On Irrational Arts.

Celer
How could you believe me when I said I loved you when you know I've been a liar all my life

How could you believe me when I said I loved you when you know I’ve been a liar all my life is the highly poetic title of Celer’s new record, a deep ambient exercise through time, memory and place. Four tracks that apparently derive much of their character from being forgotten about on old formats for years. On White Paddy Mountain.

Celer
Viewpoint

The ambient genius of Celer is on display once more, as the prolific master of soundscapes releases Viewpoint, a record that paints a picture of the artist's summer in all of its minute details: as he describes the influence of these drones to be of different elements of a hometown, from the natural winds to the buildings and people. 

Celer
Truth Abandons

Extremely limited (a Celer standard) cassette with digital version, only 150 available. Forced into a state of limbo whilst moving house over a period of weeks, Will Long came across several cassettes of recordings he had used for a live performance. Truth Abandons is the result of compiling and editing these tracks into a single piece.
