Galerie Stratique

Hiding behind the moniker Galerie Stratique is Quebec City electronica artist Charles-Émile Beullac. Struggling to get recognition from a quasi-non-existent IDM scene in his hometown, he released his first full-length CD, Nothing Down-to-Earth, on the British label Law & Auder.

Beullac was born in March 1977. He began to experiment with synthesizers and sequencers at age 14. His training on violin, flute, and trumpet as a child had little impact on him, except maybe to convince him the performance and interpretation aspects of music were not his cup of tea. Beullac spent his free hours as a teen toying around with electronica and lo-fi hip-hop ideas. He experienced an epiphany at age 18 when listening to the Cure's song "A Forest." This introduction to atmospheric music opened up a whole new region he did not suspect. He dove head first into IDM, ambient, and early electronic music, quickly finding new heroes in Autechre, Boards of Canada, and Brian Eno.

Beullac bought his first analog synthesizer in 1997 and began to write more seriously. The next year, he was selected among the finalists of an international competition for composers using ReBirth software. Plans for a compilation CD curated by Anvil Records fell through when the label went bankrupt. Beullac continued to work in his bedroom, developing his polished IDM sound in private. In 2000, a first track titled "VU" appeared on the Worm Interface compilation alt.frequencies.4. This was the artist's first public appearance as Galerie Stratique.

Reviewers pointed out his contribution, which allowed him to start looking for a record contract. Since there is no serious electronica label in the Province of Quebec, Beullac had to turn to foreign outlets. The labels SKAM and Plug Research expressed interest, but Law & Auder offered better turnaround time and complete artistic control. Released in November 2001, Nothing Down-to-Earth received good press in North America, but was largely ignored in Europe.

In early 2002, while staying away from the concert stage, Beullac began to collaborate with other Quebec-based artists, namely the ambient post-rock group Below the Sea. ~ François Couture, Rovi

This is some seriously incredible stuff
How can people hate on GS? No taste?
@ Willow: lol
French? No wonder it sucks
= ) ...my favorite!!!
@Taylor : Galerie Stratique has also released much more experimental and un-safe music, but you can't find it on Pandora : Faux World, Point d'Orgue, Antihoraire. . .
He sounds too safe. He's on my Sixtoo radio station. Not boring enough to dislike but it seems like he spend too much time trying to sound like he is not spending too much time making his music. It reminds me of a nature sounds CD with a constant recurring sound (rain, waterfall) with some stuff thrown in the foreground occasionally (birds, frogs.)
yeah.. now trentemoller is playing and my entire store is groovin!!!
never heard of him till now. Rylka is playing now and there isnt much going on. quite boring actually and definately NOT IDM at ALL. some bleeps and boops with a distant and faded "safe" beat in the background. sounds like a neighbors basement computer project i reeeeaaally dont wanna hear for the 26th time. but. far be it from me to coverjudge.. . ill look into him more before i go bashin his stuf.
