Anthony Paul Kerby (APK) is an electro-ambient musican and ex-philosopher residing in Ontario, Canada. He was born and raised in rural southern England, moving to Canada in his mid 20s. Initially trained on classical/spanish guitar, but now almost exclusively keyboards and related electronic technology, digital manipulations, and field recordings.
He crafts original sonic ambient landscapes and subtle electronica under several names: The Circular Ruins, Lammergeyer, The Winterhouse and Nunc Stans. The music tends towards deep and fascinating immersive atmospheric soundscapes that range from lush to minimal. The tone is melancholic, moving and thoughtful, with drawn-out melodic lines that are sometimes interwoven with understated rhythmic elements, frayed and grainy synth experiments, occasional indecipherable voices, curious noises, and ambient field recordings.
