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 discogr...view item »

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 f...view item »

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.

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 m...view item »

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 ...view item »

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-s...view item »

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-...view item »

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. H...view item »

Celer
Dying Star

It feels like a while since we've had a new Celer CD in. Celer's release schedule has slowed down of late which is probably a good thing really as over saturation of artists is a never a good thing. It can feel a bit daunting sometimes when an artist has recorded that many albums and you just don't know where to start! Sabbaticals are always wel...view item »

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. ...view item »

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 poss...view item »

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 fin...view item »

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.

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 oc...view item »

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. ...view item »

Zigzag

Celer's torrent of releases seems to have slowed to a trickle of late, but it's no surprise to see Will Long back on my review pile this week with another newie. This is one of two CDs out this week on Spekk which come in beautiful book-like oversized card sleeves. It probably won't surprise you to learn that the disc itself contains beautiful u...view item »

Voyeur

Hitchcock’s ‘Rear Window’ is one of my favourite films of all time. in fact,  my life at home when I work on my computer is quite similar to the plotline, except nothing ever happens in the various windows overlooking my lair.....nor do (m)any women pop round on me, nor do I have a broken leg.

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....view item »

Celer
Dwell In Possibility

I think I'm right in saying that this is Celer's first vinyl album? And unsurprisingly it contains a whole lotta sweet, sweet ambience. When I saw the artwork I wondered if it might be a sort of sister release to the amazing Engaged Touches but it's actually got quite a different, darker, feel on the whole. I guess if you follow through with the...view item »

It's nice to crack out an odd tape here and there. I don't play many these days but every so often I enjoy the sound you get from a tape.

Despite Phil's concerns about their input slowing up in recent months, Celer seem to be continuing unabated, presumably with a huge backlog of material to plough through.

Weavings Of A Rapid Disenchantment

Celer. That's a name I ain't heard in a while. Honest! It was inevitable there'd be stacks of lovingly-crafted drones from the sadly separated pair left in the vaults. What is really cool is that Dani's photography archive is getting a wider audience, her carefully chosen evocative images adorn this spiritual mong-out of a record. The calm drone...view item »
