Celer - Discourses Of the Withered

Originally released on Infraction Records in 2008, Discourses Of the Withered was the first fully-realized
album produced by the duo of Will Long and Danielle Baquet for an independent record label. After 3 years of
handmade self-releases of one-offs and itinerant experiments, we collected these early methods into a compound
and unified set of recordings, consisting of multi-stage narratives. Results blended instrument recordings, found
sounds, synthesis, and field recordings, all recorded direct to tape and mixed manually on diy multi-track reel-to-reels,
collages of patchwork tapes glued together, or ultra-long unyielding static loops.

15 years later, Discourses Of the Withered is presented on 3 physical formats of 3LP vinyl, CD, and 2CS tape, and digitally,
remastered from the original, complete tapes by Stephan Mathieu at Schwebung.
