Description Without Place: Filaments
Description Without Place: Filaments
Filaments brings together, for the first time, the field-recording & sample manipulations of James McDougall (Entia Non) with the more synth-based skills of Anthony Paul Kerby (The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer, Nunc Stans). The result is a remarkable and unified flow of creativity that is ripe with juicy sonic details and moody atmospheres, and that is woven through with subtle melodic threads. Contemporary, glitchy, detailed, and musically absorbing, this is a work to come back to again and again.

was composed via long-distance collaboration - Australia to Canada. Final compositions and mixing by APK.

"Kudos to these guys for releasing a very beautiful and understated album! I love Entia Non's solo music, but Filaments goes way beyond that. Anthony's synths and piano add a sense of purpose and depth to Entia Non's stream-of-consciousness sound samples. There's nothing dramatic or earth shaking about this music, it's all very subtle...  but in a quiet house with a good set of headphones, you can take a trip and forget who, or where, or why you are, for an hour or so. And maybe that's the greatest thing that ambient music can offer. Highly recommended." Joe Rygwelski (Hypnos Forum)

"James McDougall and Anthony Paul Kerby here summon a dark, restless album, full of suspended amorphous masses of synthetic sound and plain melodic motifs eddying in a charged, reverberant space. Often it is as if one were trapped in the undergrowth of a glacial garden where some tiny creature just out of sight is gasping its last breath - a garden of delights where blurred memory and desiccated loneliness watch their own breath ...

While the work does generally dwell as a gelid, twinkling landscape of mystery, bevy of field recordings - insectoid scrabbling, wind howling, floor creaking - interlace and invade the long shadows of these instrumental patterns, rendering them more immediate, personal, transient. Conjoined with the textures, everywhere so rich and deep, and I soon want to pass my hand over them, feel them rippling beneath my fingers, sensual and suggestive"
