JASON VAN GULICK - ENTELECHY (sold out) idcd008
05/2014 CD AVAILABLE AND SHIPPING NOW
Anyone who's seen him performing either solo, sharing the bill with Stephen O'Malley (Sunn O)))), Chris Corsano, N.U. Unruh (Einstürzende Neubauten), or along with Carla Bozulich / Evangelista, Y.E.R.M.O. or french based collective DEGA! will confirm: Jason Van Gulick definitely counts among the most inventive and talented drummers in the music scene nowadays.
His dynamite loaded though subtle and masterfully executed performances, mixtures of wild rhythms and abstract soundscapes made him a quite a name in the last years and it was about time for Jason to release his first solo album.
Entelechy combines electroacoustic textures with more musical, "free" drumming passages.
Formerly trained as an architect, Van Gulick puts an important focus on natural resonance and often performs in locations chosen for their acoustic specificities. Therefore, Entelechy has been entirely recorded in resonant spaces such in Brussels as a squat called RTT and young but already legendary underground concert venue HS63.
The album has been mixed by RIPIT and mastered by Frederic Alstadt at Angstrom, Brussels.
