- Trilogy Select by Stellar OM Source
1 review. Write a review for us »
Stellar OM Source is electronic musician, producer, DJ and visionary artist Christelle Gualdi. 'Trilogy Select' takes selected cuts from Stellar OM Source's CD-R trilogy released last year (entitled 'Crusader', 'Alliance' and 'Ocean Women') and pares the tracks down to form the cohesive album I'm listening to right now. Originally released via the ever reliable Olde English Spelling Bee and now licensed to Maomoo/Art Union for release on CD (due in about a month), 'Trilogy Select' seems to be picking up momentum which is most likely due to my (and the rest of the worlds) fascination with synth ambiance and exploration. It certainly beats listening to a load of drone and tired field recordings all day. If you're gonna do that shit then keep it cosmic i say. Recorded in various sweet locations around the world (The Hague, Lisbon, Paris, and New York) 'Trilogy Select' has that otherworldly feel that is hard to pull yourself away from. Just trying to review this beast is hard enough when all you wanna do is turn the stereo way up, sit back, close your eyes and imagine yourself in some kind of flotation device...in stasis...orbiting the moon...in space yo. Not surprisingly it features a Dan Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) collaboration track entitled 'Rites Of Fusion' which is a good point of reference for new listeners as Stellar OM Source and Oneohtrix share a lot in common in terms of sonic goals and musical aspirations. They both indulge in the dark arts of ambient synth drone yet their approach is lively, fun, adventurous and very much hands-on which is why it has that nerdy Kosmische appeal you'd expect from such a studious and skilled musician. I'd like to see her playing a laser harp...aloft a pyramid...in Egypt...with Jean Michael Jarre and Klaus Schulze backing. Imagine that sweet shit. Gotta be album of the week lads?
