Retro-futurist sound-scapery from Montreal sound/installation artist Roger Tellier-Craig, popping up again on Root Strata to deliver a dazling array of textural forms, glitch symphonies and other astonishing electronic wonderment. Loosely inspired by cyberpunk author William Gibson, this promised to be a sonic tour-de-force.

8/10 Mike Staff review, 13 August 2014

Godspeed/Fly Pan Am chappie Roger Tellier-Craig is back with more cosmic electronics under his Le Revelateur alter-ego this week, this time on Root Strata. Opener 'Stream Terminal' kicks off in fine style, a buzzing synth switches steadily between two octave drones while deceptively calming cosmic synths drift about for a while, gradually getting taken over by all sorts of looped incursions until the listener is adrift in a chirruping, fluttering landscape of dizzy future-electronic brightness.

Elsewhere on the album he also plays around with different combinations of cosmic serenity and panicky chaos, which gives it a kind of ghost-in-the-machine creepiness from which it derives its mechanical soul. The stop-start robotic stumble of 'Followers' is another case in point, evolving from delicate ambient electronica into a warped and mutated twitchscape in delicious fashion. While his previous releases have been tasty slices of head-nodding kosmische, it's good to see he's taking that aesthetic somewhere a bit more idiosyncratic here. Compelling stuff.
