A rarity for Plasmodium: One and a half hours of prog rock from Seattle ambient/tech-house producer Gel-Sol


Seattle’s Gel-Sol is producer/musician Andrew Reichel, whose dichotomous sound spans from ambient soundscapes to complex, rhythmic electronica, to absurdist plunderphonics, creating a dynamic psychedelic universe with heavy emphasis on improvisation. In 2004, Gel-Sol released the critically-acclaimed Gel-Sol 1104 (aka Music Made For You…And By You, I Mean Me.) on the UK’s cult ambient label Em:t Records. Gel-Sol’s follow-up album Unifactor continues the tradition of his unique, amorphous sound collages, and was released on Upstairs Recordings (Vancouver) in April 2007. Gel-Sol’s third album IZ, released by Upstairs/Psychonavigation in 2008, is an all-ambient excursion written for his niece, and is a bit of a departure from his previous two efforts. In 2010, Gel-Sol released K8EMA, a psychedelic/ambient follow-up to IZ, written for his second niece.

Andrew is also a member of the electronic group KIDS FOR TOMORROW, an improvisational trio focused on experimental/ambient music, and co-hosts Monster Planet, a monthly ambient/experimental night dedicated to improvisation and shitty monster movies.
