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.
This one has sold out on all formats. Sorry!

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 06 October 2016
In 1984, Celer’s 80-year-old uncle took a trip to Tunisia, tragically drowning while swimming in the ocean on only the second day of having been there. An awful incident yes, but Celer wanted to retrace his uncles footsteps by visiting the same places he did back then and chronicle the activity through ambient.
And ambient it is, the usual Celer clouds drifting aimlessly by, this time with some definite sun-scorched-ness to them. I’m getting orange and yellow from this. It could easily be mournful or accepting of his uncle’s fate both at once, the chords toeing the line quite nicely between the two. Snatches of a French man speaking can be heard buried under various points, which sort of makes sense as Tunisia is a land once stolen by the French.
It’s nice to hear Celer do music for places worldwide, and I think carrying on this route would promise some interesting twists and turns in his musical journey. See Chihei Hatakeyama, Taylor Deupree, and Bvdub.
