"Kurt Vs Bertrand"

When the wind ravages our coastal city, ripping the air from the streets and smashing it into your face, there’s a little part of you beneath coats and jumpers that starts to feel alive. Planetary scale physics are trying to dislodge you from your journey, yet you persevere, at 45 degrees into the wind. Your heart pumps faster and the additional effort required, while not much, is enough to laugh in the face of Descartes. If he could hear you above the infernal wind.

If the violence of weather is life then the first half of Cabaal’s Altar/Ascent conjures a moment between the worlds of the living and the dead. A purgatory, a land where all the noise of creation is trapped in ice, awaiting the arrival of Kurt Russell. It is a period of waiting, of sacrifice and anticipation of the fruits that that might bring; of looped tapes and reverb heavy tones; of far off pianos buried deep beneath a blanket of soft white noise.

The second half of Altar/Ascent is the release, of sorts. The arrival of a beat, hewing a stairway to the stars out of the ice. It promises escape from this world. This world of calm and ice and night and it does so by altering the very landscape that kept it all in check. Now the noise of the world is freed from the ice as the stairs of ice rise ever upwards. - 20jazzfunkgreats

Light Pollution EP - November 2011



Bio courtesy of Redbull Music Academy 2013:

If there was anyone you’d trust to coax the soul out of analog synths, it might well be this Religious Studies student from Ottawa. After all, as any synth will tell you, when you’re coming to terms with your own identity, it helps to have someone near who appreciates the finer points of spiritual understanding. Cabaal knows all this and more: his music is made to soundtrack . After several self-released tracks for friends, his first proper EP in November 2011, Light Pollution, got tons of positive responses and comments from blogs and fans alike, even prompting praise from CoFlo supremo El-P. Since then, he’s been collecting more synths and tape machines for his out-of-body flotation tank music, while also studying how to apply Buddhist teachings to a William Gibson world. After the 2012 release of his first full length album Emanations, which was received with rave reviews on the blogosphere, Cabaal will be spending 2013 at the Redbull Music Academy in New York City, touring, and working on new material.

In 2014 Cabaal has worked on a number of local Montreal film soundtracks, including Ephere Heilland's En Trois Temps, and Kevin Calero's Stagnant Pool. He is currently preparing sound for installation work, and in February put out his 4th release, APEX, recorded in large part on the fifth floor of a vacant building in Mile End.
