Nebulo – Parallaxes (Album – Le Cabanon Records)
Genre/Influences: Experimental, Abstract.
Format: Digital, Vinyl.
Background/Info: French artist Thomas Pujols is now active for numerous years under the Nebulo moniker. He gained some recognition releasing his debut works on Hymen Records. He went on releasing his productions on different labels and unleashed his newest opus on Le Cabanon Records.
Content: The sound universe of “Parallaxes” remains an Experimental approach wherein the artist is decomposing and recomposing sounds and noises. The tracks have something fragmented, sometimes creating the effect of a vinyl, which is jumping on the turntable. But behind this Experimental approach also hides a more ‘classical’ Soundtrack approach, which makes it more accessible.
+ + + : This is the kind of production, which would perfectly fit to a very special visual content. Nebulo has never been a ‘classical’ project and remains in search of new paths. Call it weird or simply avant-garde, this work will absolutely move you. I like the fusion between totally Experimental effects and a rather classical Soundtrack style. But I prefer some heavier sound sculptures, which can be heard at different passages.
– – – : The fragmented and totally Abstract way of working still has something irritating. It’s not the kind of record that is accessible for a wider audience.
Conclusion: “Parallaxes” sounds as an explicit exposure of what Experimental music can be!
Best songs: “Peplum Cream”, “Vif Argent”.
