Prog Reviewer
4 stars Didier Bocquet makes electronic music in the traditional Berlin school fashion, using spacey synth effects and driving percussive sequences to create a very interstellar type of atmosphere that is to be expected. Fortunately, this is not simply more of the same when compared to the obvious German artists who created and perfected this style.

Voyage Cerebral frequently seems more diverse in tone and construction than some of the music by Didier Bocquet's more well-known contemporaries. First of all, this album has a great textural dynamism, utilizing density or sparsity masterfully. The music never gets too empty and boring nor does it ever elevate into complete electronic cacophony. Though the main musical elements are very comparable to the Berlin school masters, the way the layers on this album are laid upon each other are done so subtly through its duration create such a steady and practically perfect flow.

As the word voyage in the title may imply, Voyage Cerebral is very much a cerebral voyage with emotional highs that range from imperial bombast to dreary black cosmic gloominess to internally peaceful euphoria.
