Anthony Paul Kerby and Tomas Weiss are familar names to followers of quality ambient electronica. Anthony has many respected recordings under the names Lammergeyer, Nunc Stans, and The Circular Ruins. Tomas most recently recorded as Nautic Depths and El Hadra, and is especially well-known for his deep drone work with Mathias Grassow.
Distant Shadows is their first collaboration and, as might be expected, it is something very special. Expertly crafted, rich with detail and brooding undertones, the work is composed as one vast and immersive journey through elaborate sonic landscapes and northern visions of isolation, serenity, subtle powers and hidden depths.
Released on the joint DataObscura and El Culto label, Construct. in April 2011.
This is the original mastered release.

...transmuting through gorgeously heartwarming mirages into blissful all-embracing sonic euphoria. It happens again and again with each spin, I am drifting through the emotionally magnified sonic Eden into the resonant silence with goosebumps on my arms...
Recorded in the remembrance of lost loved ones, "The Passing" dives into the most intense, yet nectarously sumptuous, harmoniously gratifying and luminously eulogistic zones of heart-rending contemplations ever sculpted by Steve Roach!!! Richard Gürtler

This is the journey to the center of gray. It is what it is and always will have been. Words waste time when this creation should be the main thing in our minds. The ability of Steve's music to transport us to realms of truth and beauty is really the crux of what this is all about. The zone is reached in this incredible sound world.
