With his albums "Asteroids" and "Wanderer Of Time" (Also on Groove Unlimited), Dutchman Gert Emmens has established himself as one of the leading musicians in the retro/melodically style. On "Obscure Movements In Twilight Shades" he manages to further master this. The album contains music he has written exclusively for his concerts at the "E-Live festival" on September 27 2003 in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
On "Obscure Movements In Twilight Shades" Gert uses some very impressive classic synthesizers like the Minimoog, Multimoog, Moog Sonic Six, Polymoog and Korg 800 DV (remember this from Kitaro?). His music can best be described as great sequences and fine solos combined with beautiful melodies and a pleasing overall atmosphere. A very impressive track on the album is "Entering The Dark Depth". The title is a good one because it starts with dark Mellotron choirs and nice effects after a brilliant sequence enters. Another well-found title is the last track "Voice From The Past". It leads the listener back to the golden seventies when electronic music was a big thing. Again, this piece bears his own melodically style.
Things have developed really fast for Gert during the last years.
Where will he lead us to next?
