HUMANA : Boulier, Julien – "a Film Not Yet Made" –
"This is simply beautiful music composed and played by Julien Boulier, who can make keyboards and electronic sounds that resemble harp, violins, and bells. This French musician has indeed composed music that would make an atmospheric soundtrack, and the delight comes from imagining your own film. You know how ending credits can pull at your heartstrings and take you through emotions that leave you feeling clean and, well, cried out? That is what I felt when listening to this."

Norman Records : "French pianist and composer Julien Boulier offers a suite of trickling ivories laced with delicate strings and electronics for lovingly, dementedly DIY-packaged label Time Released Sound. A Film Not Yet Made indeed glistens with unmistakably cinematic meanings; tense, rise & fall short-range arpeggios, slow, deliberate and cautious movements, independent-but-harmonious strings communicating layers of shared emotion for dramatic effect - all that cinematic piano stuff is there. Good job, Julien!"
Norman Records : "Julien Boulier’s new album is a fittingly-titled piece of highly-cinematic romantic grandiose miniatures: captivating stuff. A Film Not Yet Made is available in regular CD and LP editions, as well as a box set version that Time Released Sound themselves describe as ‘over-the-top’… red vinyl in a vintage box, with vintage 1860’s magazine cuttings, vintage french architectural plans, dried lavender, and a handwritten score. Well."
James Catchpole Fluid Radio : "Instead of fitting into the glitzy era of vintage Hollywood and living it up en masse on LA’s sunset strip, A Film Not Yet Made has more of a European feel, descending upon the streets of Paris and using her boulevards and arrondissements as outdoor studios. French composer and pianist Julien Boulier films on location. No indulgent lifestyle. No Mulholland Drive. But musically, nothing is out of bounds.
Thoughts appear like emerging notes, slowly populating the reel and imprinting themselves upon the filmy surface of the music. The recently-unloaded cameras are ready to record, pregnant with rolls of black film which will soon occupy the silver screen of the mind. Thoughts flitter like pages of an unfinished script caught in an immediate, anxious breeze, but the music relaxes, taking in an extra shot of whiskey just before a tricky scene begins, calming the nerves of stage fright in the process. The music follows the actress as she walks through the side-streets, meandering casually around recently excavated corners and narrow streets. In this film, the actress is both director and star. Between the shoots, the music reclines, as if it were on a prolonged smoking break, but its ambling narrative picks up again afterwards, its scent of mystery let loose in the Parisian air.
The nine celluloid constructions bring a dream to life; a magical realism hopping from screenplay to reality. Framed in black-and-white, these cinematic, classical pieces are spattered with screen tearing and the oblique rain of old cinema’s white noise. The nine breathy, atmospheric, and incredibly spacious pieces are encased in frames of music, sealed in a vault, never to see the light of day (quite literally, as sunlight will tarnish the film), where seconds freeze and the smartly-dressed actors walk and talk in half-speed.
The notes live in a fairy-tale, but it’s just an illusion. They’re just actors, playing a role, filling a scene. Off camera, the music lives in the cold blue light of reality. A cold day in February.
Dripping strings and uneasy chord progressions bring the mystique of Hollywood scoring to the film. A thriller / romance inside the trickling strings, like something from the 1958 classic ‘Vertigo’, even though the music defies a specific date. It could feature a stunning actress from the 1930’s, or it could be from 2018. The date has been lost. Electronic blips recall the old chill-out style that ascended to commercial popularity at the turn of the millennium, its free-flowing arpeggios encased in a block of ice. The mysterious sounds slink around, wandering the backstreets like out-of-focus shadows.
Some people say that music can date, can age, but does it ever become stale? The classical music of the past seems ageless; to this day, it still has abundant life. A Film Not Yet Made is as fresh as a raindrop."
Hearfeel : "I’ve been intrigued by fragrances lately, dabbling in the world of smells. At first I was compelled by the notion of a “signature scent”, of having something identifiable as me, some collection of aromas that would resonate with my individual character and presence. It’s been an interesting and ongoing journey, and whilst I’ve yet to find “the one”, I’ve been surprised that on multiple occasions I’ve discovered the reverse: scents constructed to evoke a sense of place and not person.
These are not so much scent-memories as artistic fabrications of location, impressions and imaginings, approximations. One of my favourites, “Un Jardin Sur La Nil”, is a sweet, fruity, floral gift, a reflection of some cool Egyptian garden. It’s a fiction of course, an emulation leant to the wearer to transport them (and others) to the place of its design, rather than some exacting distillation of space.
Boulier’s A Film Not Yet Made is a film soundtrack without a film, yet like those perfumes it elicits a response all the same, whisking the listener away into a fantasy world of cinematic loveliness. This is no signature scent, not an OST prescribed to a deliberate set of visual constraints, and that lifting of boundaries makes it an intriguing listen. One begins to imagine scenes of our own for the music, or find life events to suit the tone of these suggestive music-smells.
The sweet delicacy of the piano in “Arcane Septime” sends me walking out in the streets of my home city on an Autumn afternoon for example. Its keystrokes dance and flutter like leaves on pavement, a faint wist in its tone as it prepares for Winter, a bite to the air. It’s quite at odds to precursory “Cordyline Deviant” whose violin strings and terse acoustic pluckings feel strained, like a fretful walk through the forest as sunset approaches: will I make it back to the car before dark? Who knows, there’s pace and soft threat as a result.
There’s dreamy filmic mystery to mid-album “Acanthe Envol”, opening to the roar of a fading plane engine, jetting us off to some foreign and strange land. It fills its time with sweet arpeggiations, harp-like pickings reverberating out into the unknown alongside the croonings of some strange synth, this invitation of alienation into its core. Or how about the enigmatic unwindings of “Accord Etendu”, whose softly rumbling bass lines supplement the tragic piano sparsity above, like being taken on a tour through some tired old medieval home, time bleeding out of the walls and decrepit furniture.
Boulier proffers us cinematic music without visual limitation, and the resulting freedom felt is an unexpected blessing."
