Patrick Gauthier — Le Morse
(Seventh Records A XX, 1996, CD)
by Alain Lachapelle, Published 1997-02-01
Patrick Gauthier's third solo offering reveals, past the "soul" opening piece, a rich blend of keyboards and vocals, hovering mostly in between mysterious and clear atmospheres, with a bit more than a pinch of zeuhl thrown in. People who were perhaps a bit deceived by Gauthier's previous album, Sur les Flots Verticaux perhaps because of its generalistic approach focused on rhythms, will find here much more to explore. While still in about the same tones, La Morse presents a lot more ground that offers a solid rest in order to present a thoughtful music which is quite often lead by Stella Vander's voice. The cast of musicians is diversified, giving ample support for Gauthier's keyboard work. A refreshing offering that may very well please to a lot of zeuhl and fusion fans.
