Celer is Will Long. Xièxie is an album of experiences from time spent in China, captured via field recordings and soundscapes produced in a studio environment. Xièxie can be translated as thank you in Chinese and presumably Celer wishes to say thank you for his experiences in China. Musically, Xièxie is an album of flowing ambient compositions that are relaxing, but at the same time demand close listening. There are short and long pieces, which capture different moods, thoughts and experiences. (06.23.17) From The Doorway Of The Beef Noodle Shop, Shoes On The Street In The Rain, Outside The Karate School is a deeply atmospheric field recording based piece, whilst Rains Lit By Neon is a slightly disconcerting synth led number and Prelude To Obsession I sees life sounds give way to shape changing melodies. Xièxie lets us experience China through the eyes and ears of Celer.
