- Engaged Touches by Celer
9/10 Fibes 30th April 2016
Another mesmerising record from the prolific Will Long. The slow swells are there in abundance, and where every Celer release seems to inhabit its own self-contained world so does this one. The opening passage is as gently persuasive a statement of intent as you can possibly get, sunshine flickering off the surface of a repeated motif cast from layers of synth strings. From part 1 to part 2 the summery tremulations give way to shade; a coldness begins to dominate - while all is still calm and the signature blissful calm is maintained, shadows draw long and thoughts become at once more vague and more complex.
Despite the near-obscene amount of catalogue Long has accumulated, these are no sketches or rushes - the natural minimalism of these pieces suggests they have been constructed at some pace, but the sheer depth and layers of illuminating clarity on offer decrees otherwise. You will want more.
