Gustavo De Beauville is a self-taught artist, musician/guitarist and producer from Airdrie, Alberta. He has contributed to bands, games, film and now, his first venture into the solo world with his debut instrumental CD, Volume 1. This new album is a collection of instrumentals, ranging from epic and atmospheric post-rock to electronic and industrial sounds. You can listen to Volume I in full here.
About his unique musical style, De Beauville said: “I feel most alive when creating music. As a self-taught artist I appreciate the effort and dedication it takes to make technically sound recordings. Since I work best alone, necessity has driven me to embrace multiple instruments. It was through approaching these from my own perspective that forged my sound.”
As one half of the metal/rock duo The Unravelling, he won the 2010 Alberta Metal Award for Best Production as well as a nomination for Best Track for his work on the full-length CD, 13 Arcane Hymns. 13 Arcane Hymns received wide acclaim, receiving nods from Metalsucks, Metal-rules.com, Pure Grain Audio and Scene In The Dark. Gustavo wrote the music and produced the album (with mixing/mastering by Casey Lewis of Echo Base Studios) while Steve Moore contributed lyrics/vocals.
The new album Volume 1 is available at CD Baby and Bandcamp. Gustavo is currently planning a series of follow up solo releases as well as working on new material with The Unravelling.
