|on higher ground|
During the Autumn of 2018, after the release of our digipack Galaxis, we decided to make a double album with a lot of Mellotron and guitar. And sequences of course ... 14 tracks were completed for this album, but at the start of 2020 we found all these old, never released tracks back which resulted in the release of the digipack Forgotten Tracks during the Spring of 2020. Since we didn’t want to release anything soon after it, we just continued with our recording sessions. The result was 36 finished tracks at February 2022. Well, what to do with it? After long hesitating we decided to take the big step to release all 36 tracks at once. The 14 tracks mentioned before are spread over the 6 cd’s. A number of the tracks have more than one version.
The music was composed,
played and recorded by Gert Emmens & Ruud Heij from November 2018 till
February 2022. All basic tracks were recorded at Infinite Echoes Studio
in Bunnik, Netherlands and completed, mixed and mastered in Studio Gert
Emmens in Ede, Netherlands. Mastered March and April 2022 by Gert Emmens.
