These latest long form works from Gomberg, rooted in synthesizers and computers, provide comfort in vibratory waves.The movements are slow and static, warm and detailed without being obsessive. Mixed in with direct recordings are room recordings that hint at the live presence which is presiding over all—orchestrating, guiding. These are the hypnogogic moments in the window seat. The comfort of the blanket. The sunset at 30,000 ft.

Includes download code that features an alternate program from the cassette version.

Here’s an additional good word from Justin Snow/Anti-Gravity Bunny:

This is one of those instances where I know the artist, I’ve listened to him before, I’ve even reviewed a record of his before (Waiting In Poor Lighting), and while the name has stuck with me, I was never really hooked or anything. So if you’re maybe in the same boat as me in regards to Mr. Billy Gomberg, do yourself a favor and put this one on the top of your listening pile. Certain Words Again And Again is 40 minutes (45 if you’re listening to the digital version) of brilliantly beautiful minimal tender drone that effortlessly floats in the air, light & delicate, yet substantial enough to completely wrap your senses in a cloud of bliss, glowing shades of warmth that shift oh so slowly in a gorgeous display of silent transcendence brought to life, a stunning presentation of restraint and precision perfectly balanced between overworked and underdeveloped that can be so hard to achieve in minimalism, Gomberg has made something truly fucking exquisite, I just want it to swallow me whole and not have to care about anything else. And back to that time difference thing I mentioned before, the track listing differs between physical & digital versions, the physical has 2 long and 2 short songs, the digital drops the 2 short songs and adds another long one, so you’re actually treated to almost an hour of music here, wholly worth the $7 price tag.

Video for a track off my cassette/digital album Certain Words Again and Again out 10/1 on Sunshine Ltd!

As the perfect visual accompaniment to Gomberg’s subtle and patient music, we offer a sneak preview video here of the upcoming tape by Brooklyn’s Billy Gomberg. Known for both his solo work and collaborations with Richard Kamerman and Anne Guthrie, Gomberg has amassed an impressive discography including work for labels such as Digitalis, Experimedia, and Students of Decay. He also released a gorgeous tape on Milwaukee’s Avant Archive that is a must find. All of this suggests that the intersection of Gomberg with Sunshine Ltd. is bound to be a special convergence of like-minded souls. Fading synth tones and glacially shifting melodies are softly punctuated by occasional acoustic elements to create a seamless cocoon of warm sound. Waves of overlapping harmonics and droning layers of hinted fuzz help to flesh out the experience while the undulating abstract scenes of water in the video wash over the viewer. The tape itself, Certain Words Again and Again is equally stunning, with four long-form pieces (alternatively, three tracks on the digital version) that allow for full immersion into Gomberg’s sonic world. Sunshine Ltd. is only releasing this beautiful tape in an edition of 50 copies on 10/1, so don’t sleep on it.

new video for False Heat

Watch in HD!

I recently created a new video for material from my LP “False Heat,” issued earlier this year by a small label from Ohio, False. In the time between this records publication and now, I have done a lot of visuals for other musicians, and wanted to revisit this material using the newer techniques and footage I’ve developed.

The visuals were recorded in Sweden & Norway, August 2013, treated in CoGe, edited in Premiere.
