about

Guy Gelem is a well travelled cellist and experimental artist from Israel with previous work made available through labels such as Quiet Design, Time Released Sound, Rural Colours and Mini50.
Guy's sound is underpinned by the unique sound of his cello which is accompanied by recordings of other instruments such as guitars and an old Casio keyboard and typically his approach to composition is to layer the recordings, adding subtle passages of drone and textured field recordings.
His distinctive sound is striking so it's no wonder that his musical influences are wide; these range from Radiohead, John Cage and Thelonius Monk, onto North African and traditional Jewish composers as well as taking in influences from nature, film and philosophy.


In 'Entirety' we are proud to present Guy Gelem's first body of work since 2014, mastered by Tim Diagram (Maps & Diagrams, Hessien). The record is a brooding listen from start to finish as the cello takes centre stage, weaving through hints of the oriental and Arabic music that Guy has been reunited with over the last couple of years. Followers of his work will find enough familiarity within the record to recognise his extraordinary style, although the added eastern charm gives a whole new dimension. It is this sound that provides the main theme within 'Entirety' as Guy strives to reflect his roots having returned to his homeland after living overseas.
Another key element to this record are the track titles, which subtly reference themes from Jewish philosophy and belief
