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.

Oh, excellent: just in, from Japan is this, the latest CD by Will Long as Celer. Nacreous Clouds is here as a remastered, now finally reissued version of an album Long made with his wife the late Danielle Baquet, exactly a decade ago. Please feel free to make yourselves comfortable and get set to be droned into a trance-like state of dreamy bliss -- via a series of warm, shimmering and drifting tones which never outstay their welcome. Move along please, oh here's another pretty drone.

Long and Baquet made these tracks -- 37 of them in total, flowing seamlessly into each other like mountain streams -- in response to some seriously, mind-bendingly gorgeous cloud formations formed high, high in the stratosphere and usually in polar regions. It’s a good thing this drone stuff is warm because these phenomena occur in some pretty darn frosty locations, aha-hem.

Really these sounds make for some certified serene times, a bit of a cliche perhaps (here it comes!) but Nacreous Clouds is the perfect soundtrack to accompany some outdoors, lying on a rug on the nearest hillside, gazing at the skies as the fluffy formations sweep by in their own sweet time. Perhaps something to try in your lunch break, if you get such a thing? If it’s not too hot, I mean. Report back, let me know what that’s like… please? I don’t ask for much. Not often.
