Serge Bulat: Queuelbum

If you read the introduction to a project and you find these words describing it, you're bound to be intrigued:

…a shifting realm of sound, visual art and philosophy; your ultimate race against time and limitations. The experience requires maximum involvement: challenge your imagination and be willing to break the rules of logic. Use your imagination - this is the only force that fuels evolution. Get ready for the journey!

The above passage is the artist Serge Bulat’s remarks about his newest release titled “Queuelbum,” and it is absolute sonic genius. It’s a large work which clocks in at eleven tracks. Many of them are odd and beautiful soundscapes which take a somewhat minimalistic approach but in the best possible way. It’s strange, but tastefully and incitingly strange.

My piece of choice from the album would have to be number six “Interqueue,” a very cinematic piano-scape that transforms into stunning sound design (almost like the kind you’d hear in the background of David Lynch’s “Eraserhead” but way more beautiful – although still pretty creepy). Of course, although this is my favorite, all the other tracks measure up just as well.

I strongly recommend you check out Serge Bulat’s website and read about this wonderful project, you won’t be disappointed!
