Stellar Om Source Nite-Glo on LP + Download
Nite-Glo is the new offering from Stellar Om Source, the outre-minded music venture of Christelle Gualdi. Tempering the freneticism unleashed on Stellar Om Source's 2013 album Joy One Mile, Nite-Glo guides Gualdi's rhythms to unexpected places of emotive and meditative power. The four tracks of Nite-Glo were written during a transient time for Gualdi. Loss and processing the associated emotions informed those moments in which she could escape to her mobile studio set up.
Recorded solely with her live hardware, Nite-Glo tears down any ornamental tapestry to uncover a core of luminescent synths, glowing 303 lines and a burning awareness. Nite-Glo continues an off-script musical journey informed by Gualdi's formal training in electro-acoustic composition at the Conservatoire de Paris and an ascent from the DIY synth scene of the mid-aughts to a global dancefloor. The passages of Nite-Glo crystallize as tracks unfurl and sequences reveal an absolute power over time.
Transcending its cathartic context, Nite-Glo finds Christelle Gualdi abstracting the ebullience of Stellar Om Source's sound in favor of remote spaces and rolling tempos. A snapshot of the artist's personal and creative transition, Nite-Glo beams through a mournful context, visible only as eyes have adjusted in the shadows.
