Ambientobit: Danielle Baquet-Long

The death has been announced of Danielle Baquet-Long, the female side of husband-and-wife dronescape duo Celer.

"Dronescape duo" and even "ambient" are too slight terms to try and explain exactly what Celer were up to; a mixture of self-produced, self-released records, installations and performance. The Spekk website tries to sum it up:

Their intent is producing works that reflect the nature of love, family, and their concerns and interests, through a relative and absolute symposium of expression. They currently reside on the coast of Southern California.

Danielle had a cruelly short life, unexpectedly truncated at the age of 26.
