After a lengthy period of silence in music production, American producer Will Thomas Long comes out with Sequoia, a twenty-two minute track dedicated to the memory of his wife Danielle Baquet-Long, who passed away last year at the young age of twenty-six. Together they were known for their prolific collaborative work as Celer and have appeared internationally on such labels as Infraction, and/OAR, Dragon's Eye, Home Normal, Spekk, Yard Rec., and Smallfish.
Will’s latest work Sequoia is inspired by an illustration of a California Redwood, one of the tallest trees in the world. Perhaps it is the scale of this gigantic pine that reflects how small and fragile we are in comparison. Sequoia is a deeply dense and emotional journey that delicately immerses you within his subtle, gentle low-end tones and slow pulses. As his only long-form work to be published since 2009, it’s an honour to have such a moving piece as our second release.
