Julien Boulier’s new album is a fittingly-titled piece of highly-cinematic romantic grandiose miniatures: captivating stuff. A Film Not Yet Made is available in regular CD and LP editions, as well as a box set version that Time Released Sound themselves describe as ‘over-the-top’... red vinyl in a vintage box, with vintage 1860’s magazine cuttings, vintage french architectural plans, dried lavender, and a handwritten score. Well.

9/10 Jamie Staff review, 10 July 2018

Ah, Time Released Sound. I was just thinking yesterday, it was about time we received one of these lovingly hand-stitched, collaged and fully-integrated-with-the-music works of art. So here’s the debut album from French pianist, teacher and composer Julien Boulier -- and it’s a beauty, all twinkly, genteel and sprinkled with stardust.

Boulier has categorically pulled a blinder here -- his gorgeous, slowly rhythmic and highly melodic playing echoes the soft pull and push of gently swelling tides just out to sea, beyond the bay. The hint of melancholy in Boulier’s piano is underpinned by dapples of synth and gauzy electronics, as on the stunning ‘Arcane Septime’. His playing here has a particularly late-night, moonlit jazz feel reminiscent briefly of (‘60s Brit-Jazz hero) Stan Tracey on his utterly beguiling ‘Starless and Bible Black’.

The album continues to flow in a sometimes slightly sinister, often highly evocative manner with references to the past -- ‘40s noir and the golden age of (silent) cinema being some obvious reference points -- but that may be just my ears tuning into the romanticisms keyed into herein. I keep picturing well-heeled gents courting women in bustle dresses as they promenade amongst hedges of leylandii in gardens designed by Capability Brown. At the very least, these are some properly cinematic sounds.

The design aesthetic, as ever with TRS, matches the mood of the music and pays homage to the tail end of the British, later European Arts and Crafts movement; albeit in a decidedly architectural variant. There’s a particularly lavish box set this time with a building blueprint and bits of lavender inside, to make it all smell nice.
