Boomkat product review for:

celer - Dying Star

Recorded towards the end of 2008 using only a vintage analogue synthesizer and a mixing board, Dying Star is an eight-part, fifty-minute work from drone purists Celer, whose inscrutable discography continues to expand after the incredibly sad and untimely passing of one half of the duo; Danielle Baquet-Long. The accompanying notes state that the motivation behind these pieces was to create something rooted in improvisation that captured a sense of being "completely pure and secluded", that "stands as a fading presentation of memory, time, and loss, set against the ending day". Typical of this act's elusive, understated output, Dying Star is mastered at a very low volume - something that encourages cranked up headphone listening. Once your playback levels are adjusted accordingly, the continuous ebb and flow of warm tones proves powerfully immersive and crystalises itself at key moments of self-contained loveliness - in particular the eleven-minute 'How I Imagine My Hand Holds Yours' which seems to be the most dynamic and well-rounded track of the bunch. Never ones to employ excessively showy or contrived techniques, Celer continue to very quietly excel in their field by hinting at the elegant simplicity of early electronic drone music. Lovely.
