Working on a new solo
album. I want it to be an album with old analog gear only, no MIDI. With
this, I hope to give the album a strong seventies feel, more even as can
be heard on Triza. The sequences are the "heart" of the album. During
two days with recordingsessions, I recorded the sequences at a friend's
studio with his huge Moog 55 modular, the one shown on the photo.
Now working on the intro's of the tracks. More news soon.

On December 16, the new
album from Gert Emmens & Ruud Heij is released, as download only! The
music was composed and recorded in 2012, after their concert at the
E-live festival. So, the music was recorded before Gert and Ruud started
working on their ambient album Signs. The music is a strong contrast
with the ambient music of Signs: very much sequencer dominated.
