The Unnamable is a broad, sweeping work of often immense vistas and beatless atmospheres. These dynamic and engaging dronescapes reveal a much darker and more intense Nunc Stans, one aimed more at transcendence than description. Immersive and sonically rich, this release will appeal to listeners of Steve Roach and related deep ambient drone works.

Performed by Anthony Paul Kerby using a variety of synthesisers, acoustic guitar, and studio processing.

"Out of the mere arrangement of tones Anthony Paul Kerby recording as Nunc Stans is able to conjure up distinct and evocative Ambient atmospheres. Some of the ten tracks on his CD THE UNNAMABLE are rendered in darkness, fewer in light, together bringing the listener to an interesting digital twilight of their own imagining. This music is the sonic equivalent of clouds crossing a great plain or mist rising from a dark body of water - in order to perceive and appreciate these qualities the beholder must match the activity level of their surroundings. The sounds are wonderful. They rise and recede gently, each in its own turn. Drones slowly crest as different tones touch in space to create a distinctive gradually resonating soundfield. Long deep tones roll beneath tingling high frequencies - and in between the panorama extends towards a hazy hidden horizon. Thanks to Kerby's personal language of abstraction, these beautiful soundscapes turn any quiet listening area into an all-encompassing sonic environment."
Chuck van Zyl - Star's End
