REVISED VERSION: some tracks tracks have been slightly shortened.

PRESS RELEASE: Galerie Stratique expands his sonic palette with a fascinating album that floats in strange, exotic ambiance from acoustic textures. This visceral experience is made from improbable instruments, complex rhythms, broken loops, and complex rustlings merged in a jarring audio flow. Eschewing current styles, Galerie Stratique creates a beautiful, cathartic work of art.

STYLE: Experimental world music

Should please fans of Pierre Henry, Four Tet, Alog, Erik K Skodvin, Susumu Yokota, Svalastog, Bird Show, Giuseppe Ielasi.


All Music - Somewhere between electronica and sound art, deep and abstract yet colorful, bouncy at times and thoroughly captivating, Faux World provides a thrilling listen and stands as a very strong artistic statement from Beullac. Highly recommended.

Exclaim! - There are many ways to incorporate exotic instruments into experimental music, but I’ve not heard any that are as immediately striking and beautiful as Galerie Stratique’s Faux World.

Nightlife - This is elegant, deep listening music that's rich with percussion, achingly haunting tones, and washes of immersive sound, emerging melodies and moments of transcendence. An interesting, highly listenable experimental album.

Textura - By embracing atonality, micro-polyphony, and chance alignments as working strategies, Beullac liberated the material from adherence to existing styles or genres.

Panpot - Galerie Stratique's new effort shines like a steel sun. The result is an opening of the mind gate, of sorts, with a mechanical complexion that truly resonates the cold-shouldered psychedelia he encountered.

The Milk Factory - An often distorted and abstract record, Faux World is also a stunning achievement and a testament to how Beullac’s sound and approach have matured.

Vital Weekly - If you play it again, you will find this pleasantly entertaining.

The Cookshop - Beullac’s first major expression from “times of suspension”, and the most difficult to enter in the framework of some categories: it resists predictability by stirring things up, ensuring that element of activeness within its trances.

Electronic Music Review - raw imagination and vision

Bande à Part - Galerie Stratique a parfois des éclairs de génie. Faux World serait comme un carnet de voyage dans un pays inventé.

Paroles & Musique - Démontre bien la finesse de sa démarche. Malgré sa technicité, il livre une musique très facile d'accès.

Voir - On pense aux Automates Ki de Maxime de la Rochefoucauld qui se seraient échappés dans la forêt africaine.

BangBang - À ne pas écouter en camping dans la jungle.

Éclec’disques, Radio-Canada Estrie - Un mirage [sonore] qui nous transporte littéralement ailleurs, dans une utopie musicale.

Délire Actuel - Une grande ouverture sonore, mais aussi une grande intimité émotive ; un mélange vibrant d’expériences sonores et de moments d’une simplicité magique, le même désir de porter la musique au-delà de l’anecdotique vers une beauté immatérielle.

EtherREAL - Ce Faux World est riche en surprises et émerveillements.
