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.
Filaments 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)
