Biography

Gel-Sol is Andrew Reichel of Seattle, Washington. With an intimate knowledge of computer-based composition, Gel-Sol is informed by both ambient and IDM material, Gel-Sol’s dichotomous sound spans raw extremes. Loud and soft, consonant and dissonant, cat and dog; Gel-Sol meanders back and forth between poles.

Gel-Sol’s debut album, Music Made For You…And By You, I Mean Me (aka 1104), was released in December of ‘04 by Nottingham, UKʼs collectorsʼ label, Em:t Records. Compared to the likes of the Orb and Future Sound of London, Gel-Sol integrates vast soundscapes with swirling synthetics and alien beats. Also a member of 302 Acid, improvisation plays an integral role in the way they approach both composition and live performance. The result is a heavily-layered sound that draws influence from dub, ambient and IDM. Even Calls (aka 0005), was released in May ʻ05, also on Em:t Records.

Gel-Sol’s sophomore release, Unifactor, will be available in April/May ‘06.

Gel-Sol has the privilege of performing at a variety of festivals such as the Big Chill, The Masterpeace Festival, The Gaian Mind Festival and the Phoenix Festival.

    if you like Gel-Sol then you should also check FFWD (a project by The Orb & Robert Fripp), especially their demo from 1993 called "Orbert"! superb material and you won't be disappointed!

    I bring you a message. Exactly six miles north of Skagg Mountain in the Valley of Pain, there lives an evil devil-monster. His name is Bingo Gas Station Motel Cheeseburger With A Side Of Aircraft Noise And You'll Be Gary Indiana. And he *loves* to hurt people. The last time I saw Bingo Gas Station Motel Cheeseburger With A Side Of Aircraft Noise And You'll Be Gary Indiana, he told me what he wants to do. He wants to come down here and kill each and every one of you!

    It should. I find it way more entertaining than the music I write.
