1 review for Gert Emmens & Ruud Heij – Lost In The Swamp

  1. Sylvain Lupari / & synth&

    Album concept on the hazards of an adventurous man who gets lost in an immense swamp, Lost in the Swamp is one of the quietest albums from the duet Emmens/Heij. It’s an album which depicts marvellously the visions of his two authors with heavy atmospheres of night-madness weaved in a skillful ambiospheric pattern by synths which spit diverse tones to the antipodes of the reason. But synths unique to Gert Emmens’ signature with enchanting solos which sing and float among a perpetual mysterious mist built around a great use of Mellotron which feeds the paranoia of a night-visitor in a swampy den crowded of small reptiles and their steps, theirs beatings of wings and their jingling threats that we feel and hear by these flickering sequences that are the trademark of a creative duet which meets an impressive musical challenge.

    Winds singing by hollow trees open the sinister introduction of Lost”. From our ears we see the swamps depicted by the Dutch duet. A synth to the aromas of a friendly flute is dancing with some rippling lines over a pond filled of multiple sinister tones. Floating such as a cloud of comfort among these clashing sound particles
