Gert Emmens Project is the progrock project from Gert. Since quite some years, Gert is making progrock besides his Electronic Music projects. There is a strong seventies feel in his progrock music. His influences are Camel, Genesis, Steve Hackett, Allan Holdsworth, UK and others. Fusion unfluences can be heard as well.
The styles crossover the Wakeman-esque style of melodic Mini-Moog runs to sweeping symphonic workouts similar to Nick Magnus & Patrick Moraz, with solos that bring the likes of Eddie Jobson (U.K.) to mind, making music that will appeal to anyone with an ear for strong melodic keyboard playing.

In 1973, Mike Oldfield burst onto the British music scene with his debut album Tubular Bells, two long instrumental suites in which Oldfield stitched together a series of melodies into a grandly scaled work in which he played the many instruments himself. The album was an audacious beginning to a career than saw him become one of the most respected artists in progressive rock, as well as a successful film composer. The Complete Mike Oldfield is a collection released in 1985 which features selections from his first ten solo albums, as well as highlights from his score for the film The Killing Fields.

Electronic Realizations for Rock Orchestra is a stunning piece of polyphonic synthesizer music, the leap forward that took serious electronic music beyond rote imitations of Switched-On Bach into artistic territory. The opener "Legacy" is a pastoral wash of multitracked synthesizers futuristic for its time and still a bit beyond the normal even a decade later. There are several appearances by more sequenced electronics (reminiscent of Tangerine Dream), but the album works best when Larry Fast allows his harmonic sense to take over the programming of several synthesizer lines at once.

Larry Fast's Synergy was an extremely inventive and innovative electronic music project of the '70's. Larry Fast is known for his synthesizer contributions to a lot of bands in the '70's and '80's including Peter Gabriel and Yes. While Synergy's second album, "Sequencer", isn't quite as startling as their debut, it remains an intriguing, unpredictable collection of electronic instrumentals. Again, the sounds and technology occasionally sound a little dated, but the ideas remain fresh.

As Synergy, Larry Fast composed, recorded, and released Audion on Passport Records as a cassette and vinyl LP in 1981. This legendary e-musician has always been on the cutting edge of technology and artistry. His soundscape is full of dense, deep, dark, and deft sequences. To assure that there are no mistaken identities, Fast adds more sequences. To give the disc its artistic integrity, he adds some synth riffs with rock & roll textures and timbres. There are no guitars. For e-music fans, this disc is essential because of its techniques and historical importance. It will appeal to fans of Dweller at the Threshold, Radio Massacre International, Kubusschnitt, Jean Michel Jarre, and Tangerine Dream.

Genre: Progressive Electronic, Berlin School, Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Pleasure Sound Music (PSCD-6469-01)

This CD from 2009 offers 75 minutes of intellectually stimulating electronic music. The focus of these compositions is CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) and their work with particle accelerators. Using crystalline electronics in conjunction with snappy e-perc, Seifert has done a superb job capturing the soul of these scientific apparatus. The tunes (each one dealing with different machines) evoke sophisticated equipment in tandem with mankind's thirst for quantum knowledge. The electronics are smooth and slick. Dreamy texturals establish lush backdrops that serve as platforms for electronics that glisten with chromium luster. Clever mechanical traces exist as auxiliary expressions amid an undulating bevy of very accessible melodies.

The fourth full-length album by legendary German electronic music duo Cluster, originally released on Sky Records in 1976. Sowiesoso follows on from their most highly-acclaimed album, Zuckerzeit (1974). Michael Rother's influence was clearly audible on the latter, Cluster already having recorded two albums with him under the name of Harmonia. 1976 saw the duo looking for new musical forms. More than any other Cluster album, Sowiesoso represents the utopian vision of Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Mobius, its mellow transparency evoking the landscape of the Weser Uplands where the two musicians lived at the time…

After a scission of the avant-garde group "Kluster" due to the departure of Conrad Schnitzler, the two musicians Dieter Moebius and Hans Joachim Roedelius go to work in duet as "Cluster". The band's first years were clearly orientated to Krautrock and to experimental electronic music. Consequently, the production of the band started with massive, radical improvisations, constructed around electric organ works, electronic collages, guitar sound manipulations, feed back. The result is rather similar to Kluster's underground, conceptual music, very chaotic with lot of distortion and reverb. With its repetitive, hypnotic guitar patterns and embryonic electronic collages, the second album "II" can be seen as a classic in 70's German electronic underground…

Pythagoras is the name of a Dutch Progressive rock band, founded in the year 1979 in Den Haag, centered around young keyboardist Rene De Haan and experienced drummer Bob De Jong. Helped by various guests, our two fellows created, almost on their own, two opuses now regarded as electronic Progressive rock milestones: "Journey To The Vast Unknown" (1980) and "After The Silence" (1981). About a quarter of a Century after Pythagoras' demise, Musea publishes "The Correlated ABC", a double-album including unreleased tracks from the 1983-1985 period, as well as a live performance captured in Delft in May 1983.

The trio made up of Steve Dinsdale, Duncan Goddard and Gary Houghton play various sequencers, mellotrones, guitars, Fender Squires, Moogs and samplers all to good effect. Radio Massacre International has been playing together since 1979, first as a band called DAS, which released 12 albums between 1980-87, and have recorded together as RMI since 1993. Emissaries is a 2-CD set, the first being a studio set of 6 tracks that make up the hour long Emissaries Suite, and the second documents a live radio performance from 2004.

Genre: Progressive Electronic, Ambient | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: DiN (DiN23)

This trio incorporate elements of Berlin school electronics with Prog/Krautrock and are a force to be reckoned with in a live setting. "Septentrional", their inaugral release on the DiN label see’s a new approach co-ordinated by DiN label boss Ian Boddy. RMI recorded a series of three hour long improvisations which they handed over to Boddy in multitrack form. These were then sifted through, extensively edited - often in a non-linear fashion, re-mixed with the addition of synthetic percussion layers on three of the five tracks and finally reassembled by Boddy into five new pieces. The result is still definitely an RMI sounding album and captures the feel and spirit of the band but filtered through the sonic excellence listeners have come to expect from this innovative label.

RMI's Steve Dinsdale, Duncan Goddard, and Gary Houghton know how to coax all sorts of nuances from their machines, and they function as a live, interactive trio, with each member responding to the others' riffs and musical motifs. It doesn't hurt any, either, that Houghton has very impressive guitar chops, so when he eases into the mix with some blistering Stratocaster bursts, he rather convincingly updates (and improves upon) Edgar Froese's generic and rather predictable guitar flights on the seminal Tangerine Dream recordings. In a word, Radio Massacre International nail the vintage electronic music sound, but the band is simply more "nimble" than the first generation models, which greatly enhances the listening pleasure of the suitably attuned listener…if you're a musical novice unacquainted with RMI's sources, this music will serve as a stellar introduction to the form.
