NoroE (Gaël Loison)
Gaël Loison (Touellskouarn), founder member of Dale Cooper Quartet & the Dictaphones (with C.Mével and Y. Martin) has given us “Noroeste – Respiration Etang”, an incredibly rough and scandalously powerful record, like a pile of skinned and macerated electronics as if Brian Eno, of sinister memory, had poked his fingers in the grid and tinkered around making ambient music with his unwashed hands. This is a celebration of adventure, of accident and of the incredible through the voice of Zalie Bellaccico. Loison has already made a name for himself with the “TF” collective projet (3 albums) , “Maman Kusters” EBM electronic gonzo duet with Cyril Pansal, as well as the “Moregeometrico” geocaching sound experiences, generously offering web listeners his geographical obsessions and taking on stoic challenges like sonically describing such improbable places as Fieux hill, the high plateaus of Tibet and Lake Inari. He is also responsible for the “Douche Electrique” events in Brest, Brittany: unique mishmashes of music, dance and contemporary art.
