Gert Emmens – The Nearest Faraway Place Vol. 1
CD, Groove Unlimited, 2008


This cd, the first part of a trilogy, contains the music Gert composed for the Gasometer concert-gig on November 10th, 2007 in Germany.

The outcome is an uninterrupted 71-minute piece of music, for which Gert invited a guitarist to add a few fine guitars licks here and there.
The sonic content on “Nearest Faraway Place Vol. 1” continues in the fine tradition Mr Emmens offers us for quite some years now: warm, analogue synth-pads, catchy vintage sequencing, some very fine solo leads, fx’s and additions drums and percussion, which all take the listener away by no chance.

In a certain way, there’s this moody, easy-going feel layered over the properly executed music (one can almost feel the joy Gert must have had making it), although there are several dynamic peaks to be found as well .

This album really makes me look forward to the other two parts.
Congrats Gert, you did another fine job!
