Nunc Stans: Timeless
Nunc Stans: Timeless

These rich and flowing drone-scapes by our own APK (The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer) are cut through with glacial undertones and a sheen of  fascinating details. A product of far northern geography and the immensity, and isolation, of that landscape. Another deep and complex sonic delight from Canada.

The "Ellesmere Island" free EP is a companion piece to this work.

"Both Timeless and companion piece, Ellesmere Island (free EP download), come along at a time when no small number of ambienteers and droners are looking to the earth’s extremities, especially the polar and the chthonic, for inspiration. Whether knowingly or not, this work falls most obviously under the flag of “Isolationist Ambient”, a sub-genre line conceptually born in the early 90s with Virgin's Ambient 4: Isolationism compilation, and lately revisited, for one, by Netherworld’s Glacial Movements label, whose mission statement - “confronts the individual with forces beyond his control, while trying to mirror the beauty of epic, barren landscapes with immeasurable dimensions” – could apply equally well to that proposed by Nunc Stans (who, incidentally, was making glacial movements  long before GM). There’s a shared topography and sensibility with these and other Nordic polar-drifters – with the neo-environmentalist strains of a Biosphere, or the ‘soft’ isolationism of the likes of Cyclic Law’s Northaunt. Obvious peers such as Oöphoi, Alio Die or Mathias Grassow may be invoked too in considering what is fundamentally a work of layered drones uniting organic and electronic textures. But Timeless is more musically active, less dust in the wind than expanding horizons - a deal more earth and fire mixed in with its air and water, allowing slivers and shreds of melodic leads to slip through and bob in its oceanism. It’s a dark-hued ambient soundscapery whose not entirely serene meditations will be familiar from previous releases, Night Vision and Cerulean Suite. But for all its frosty alien quality, it’s run through by thermal currents, and a rich textured feel. The Shower-curtain of Sound APK often drapes across his backdrops is pronounced, and particularly dense on Ellesmere Island, where a filmy field-recording infusion creates a murky soup in which sunken harmonics may be dredged for by deeper-diving ambient treasure-hunters...."

Full review HERE 

"Entia Non Fold (Dataobscura) • Nunc Stans Timeless (Dataobscura). Two superb slabs of speculative digital hijinks from Canada’s consistently reliable Dataobscura imprint ..... Geographic expanse and the shifting sands of memory bulk up the sonic aggregate of Timeless , its graying synths conjuring the brap of permafrost crackling against the hulls of abandoned vessels. “Labrador Sunrise,” nine minutes of arctic effigy and sisyphean chords, rivals the best of early Lull, Biosphere or Thomas Koner, every bit as riveting. Epoch-shattering ambience, naked, whooping and such-like. Darren Bergstein - Circuit Breakers / Signal to Noise #52
