Sprung from his performance in Athens -part of the winter/spring European tour- this recording best describes the case for current modular synthesis. Moissonnier’s sound sculpture has a psychedelic, rhythmic underlying pattern similar to early electronic compositions. Through these 24 minutes we come across layers of slowly interleaving schematic noise & processed field recording music tracks. Not your typical noise record, in the sense that somewhere in there, the human element is present and controlling the machine.

Orila 3" CD

Recorded in Athens, here’s a great set by a French synth-improvisor who stays away from standard conventions, creating a tapestry that ranges from layered blips to raw bubbles of static to clouds of sequences thumb-wrestling for psychedelic superiority. Jumbo.

The name Gael Moissonnier sounds like a new name to me, but he has been a member of Motherfucking, La 6eme Faute and 'the informal ensemble Faux Amis', while also recording music with Pascal Nichols, Ben Morris & Rob Lye and Julien Louvet. He lives in Brussels, but in February of this year he was in Greece where he played his A-100 Modular Analog synthesizer, tapes and field recordings in the Knot Gallery. His recent 'research has been oriented towards 'improvised noise synthesis'' the label writes. Although these twenty-four minutes are quite noisy, I wouldn't call this a noise release per se. It has loud sound on it, ear piercing at times, but in a sort of rhythmic, non linear vein, bouncing up and down and quite layered. On every level of the release there is something happening. It's heavily layered and quite dynamic; it's also quite direct in y'r face. Music that sticks straight away. It has that early vintage synth approach, the 60s sci-fi soundtrack, but it's more chaotic than any such older work, and connects also to the world of industrial music. Sometimes it derails and goes on a bit too long, but overall this was quite good.
