"Gerardus Le Monk" is Twilight Ritual band member Geert C's new cover
for his solo work, started up in February 2003 as "Das Cabinett" which
discography consists of the full CD's "POW!", "Protect me from
freezing" and "Virusmaker 1.1".
As Geert shared the Das Cabinett project with vocalist Wesley De Jonghe (plans were made for live performances) he decided to change names after Wesley had left.
Releases by G. Le Monk are not that different from the sound atmosphere present in Das Cabinett. Except from the less frequently used vocal parts, the usic still sounds very post modern by it's frequent referring to eighties pop, nineties ambient and seventies megalomania. But this ecclectic style (cross-over) is not a goal "an sich" for most tracks are like figures in a manual, illustrations in some encyclopedia, giving clues and hits about to visualize meaning. People listening to the music often use the label "Dark Ambient". It's OK as fas as this is meant to generally introduce a kind of musical genre, but is should be wrong to reduce the Monk sound structures to just music for films. One may look at the tracks as different chapters from a novel that consists only of sound, for the lack of words is meant to be filled in by the listener.
