Tomas Weiss & Anthony Paul Kerby: Appearances
Tomas Weiss & Anthony Paul Kerby: Appearances
Not a Construct release, but we decided to put it in this section.

Appearances by Tomas Weiss and Anthony Paul Kerby is their second collaborative composition, building upon the solid foundations of Distant Shadows from Spring 2011. This new work forms an uninterrupted story of images and visions varying from bright expansive spaces to mysterious dark grounds, wind-swept caverns, and pools of pure emotional depth. Appearances is an immersive, expressive ambient release that is both lush and timeless, and will certainly reward enthusiasts of deep listening.

Please note that the physical album release is on Musical Philosophy
(el-culto.com). 

  Please note that at DataObscura we are selling only the MP3 download release.
 

"Ultra deep, fantastic collection of spooked drones from Tomas Weiss and APK, the owner of the Data Obscura label. All titled as "Vision" in 1-10 format, take 5 uproots BJ Nilsen's prized searing granular drone, supplanting it onto craterous masses of unexplored phantasm atmospherics. There's a strong feeling of analogue sources - seldom are soft synths this rich in texture. "Vision 6" introduces a delayed piano, vibrating up and down like a cellphone in an abandoned poker waistcoat. That's the musky sensualism of the release talking as well - an ability to transport you into an underground room size, free of Ambient's relationship with minimalist and information obscurantism. Weiss and Kerby also subvert the broken synergy of spectrum decay - a rarity when sound is this densely crafted. Absolutely magical." (Subvertcentral)

"Appearances", (CDr on Musical Philosophy label, download version via DataObscura) is the brand new follow-up to Tomas' & Anthony's premiere co-work "Distant Shadows" on the Construct label (released April 2011). This digipak release firstly attracts with its very nice cover image created by Jesse Harrison. The album, which consists of 10 pieces titled "Vision 1-10", begins with a shorter ethereal introduction that crosses almost unrecognized into "Vision 2" with the same mood, but later evolves into deeper drifting and tense configurations. "Vision 3" floats on similarly tight airwaves, but is gently enriched by assorted futuristic sound effects with a cascading texture. It slowly evolves into a massive soundwall effectively supported at the end by angelic choirs. An absolutely fascinating stratospheric odyssey!!! As magnificent is the next composition, "Vision 4", with deeply droning, free floating expansive and absorbing delicate soundscapes! Gradual tension unfolds "Vision 5", which slowly fades into rather motionless, but evolving dronescapes. Another highly mesmerizing composition heading into colossal territories and a pure masterpiece precisely interacting with album's cover artwork!!! Shorter "Vision 6" quickly returns into more organic worlds, enriched with hints of modern classical influences. "Vision 7" dives into abyssal depths of the ocean with deep, but evolving drones. The tension of this 12-minute opus gets tighter and tighter, enriched by circulating and pulsing hissy sound effects and sharply sounding industrial outbursts and disorders. At its highest peak it reaches massive soundwalls, painted with metallic and otherworldly transcendental sounds, presenting Tomas & Anthony at the throne of drone artistry. Pure bliss!!! "Vision 8" keeps the vast and intense magnificence of its predecessor, but is slightly more active with a less monumental texture, and at the end colored with razor sharp sonics. The next piece, "Vision 9", stays in rather quieter and static soundclouds, yet deeply drifting and layering into a massive palette of sounds. Grandiose, intense and powerful!!! Closing "Vision 10" is painted with more tranquil colors. A very relaxing and relieving outro of this highly fascinating and imaginative adventure. Definitely another huge one from Tomas Weiss & Anthony Paul Kerby!!! And be prepared for more, because these two guys have scheduled another co-work, this time between Anthony's Nunc Stans and Tomas' Nautic Depths (with Mathias Grassow). I think we couldn't ask for more." (Richard Gürtler, Oct 2011 - Bratislava, Slovakia)
