It is an incredible honor to have this new release by Bernard Reeb, aka espaces sonores, on Black Dingo Records. Aleatori is a self-described milestone in his musical life and is one example of his connection to sound.
As a composer for classical guitar, Bernard has written scorebooks for publishers in France and in Canada. As an experimenter, he's been asked to play at the the national opera of Nice (France) where he performed a concerto by Ligeti with electronic instruments.
He's also won awards for his work in a science-fiction short-film, as a sound-designer and composer.
And of course as a new-age and space-ambient artist on Bandcamp previously under the name espaces sonores.
These recordings, "aleatori" are a new beginning, created from random design processes and deep personal meditations on the meaning of sound; and its effects of the soul of the listener.
Bernard describes this as the interaction of sounddesign (the microcosm) and the songdesign (the macrocosm).
"Instantly lights up the imagination with an engagement of swarming hive activity along with the sense of a micro textural alien birthing chamber seething new life.
Could easily have been at home on the classic Throne-Storm-Swarm Of Drones releases on Asphodel."
"A fascinating, refreshing and eclectic soundscape - buzzing with energy and oozing from the muffled depths of subliminal memory. Can't wait for the BDR and Bandcamp community to lay ears on it!"
"Bernard makes it feel like travelling on a light ray. Or like informations and signals that was send through the endless void of space. Sometimes there are coded and compressed into a noisy datastream but sometimes they unfold fragments of messages and sounds. Until it passed again along a gravity heavy object and becomes deformed and desintegrated into the cryptic background noise of the void. Bernard paints a narrative picture of travelling signals through space, sprinkled with unexpected soundphenomenas and a discreet touch of berlin school"
"A truly mind-blowing odyssey!!!"
