Genre/Influences: Cinematographic, Experimental.

Format: Digital, Vinyl.

Background/Info: Belgian duo Dominique Vantomme – Toon Bosschaert are experienced musicians who set up Boshaard. This album is their common debut work featuring seven tracks.

Content: The self-titled album sounds like a challenge and an interesting experiment. They mixed piano and Electronics. The result is a somewhat alternative and/or Avant-Garde edit of Cinematographic music. The songs are progressively evolving from a rather classical-orientated piano play towards an Electronic apotheosis.

+ + + : The production has something original, a kind of visionary Cinematographic sound to support a visual work. It also is a true challenge to bring opposites together, but Boshaard seems to prove we’re often driven by prejudices. Classical piano and Electronics can live in perfect harmony or simply become complementary. That’s why I like the track “Gavers Part 1 & 2”. But I can also enjoy the more Neo-Classical “Per” reminding me of the Pierre Henry sphere. 

– – – : Challenges and experiments aren’t always the most accessible formats; so this is an album you really have to listen a few times to get into the intimate sphere.

Conclusion: Boshaard might be defined as a further vision of Cinematographic music.

Best songs: “Gavers Part 1 & 2”, “Per”.

Rate: (7).
