Gel – Dolce

Julien Locket is back, this time as Gel. As Gel Loquet released several 12″es and cd’s on various labels. This release, called “Dolce”, is released on the always surprising Japanese label Plop.

Loquet again cuts and slices his source material, flips it around, turns it over and treats it almost beyond recognition.
But as always Loquet is a master in creating order out of chaos. This release is once again carefully constructed, making sure there is always a melody or a recognizable instrument. Although his music might seem chaotic and not very accessible, just sit back and close your eyes and let sounds of piano, guitar, violin and maybe even a accordeon float by. The cd is full of detail, making sure that you can listen to it over and over again without getting bored by it. There is always something new to discover.

I must say this release isn’t a very big surprise. It was just what I expected it to be, beautifully constructed music by a very talented and skillful composer. Highly recommended to all (experimental) dreamers out there.
