I like music, particularly music that reflects spaciousness and features slow decay.
It bought me great pleasure to present a weekly show at 106.7PBSFM (Mebourne) named In the Quiet between 2012-2015.

What a beautiful release, I don't have a Celer/Will Long release that duds me. Both discs have the most soft horizon thing going on and at the expense of sounding lazy, are like aural zazen.
