Stubbleman presents an ambient mixture of found sounds, modular synthesizers, live piano, bass, and self-made automats and drones in a cinematic soundscape inspired by his American roadtrip.
Pascal Gabriel's musical career began back in the 70s punk band The Razors, on to the sample heavy S'Express and Bomb the Bass of the 80s, then to writing and producing artists such as Kylie Minogue, Dido, Ladyhawke, Bebel Gilberto and many more. Now Pascal's solo project, Stubbleman, sees a return to his electronic and ambient roots with new album Mountains and Plains, released on Marc Hollander's label Crammed Discs, to critical acclaim.
Complementing his music, Stubbleman also creates filmic visuals denoting movement and travel, a different piece shown with every track to tell a whole, multi-media story. These visuals are mirrored in his album artwork and online aesthetic. Each different dimension of art and engineering are combined in a complete, Stubbleman package. (The Observer Guardian)
