Remy Stroomer — Different Shades of Dust
(AKH 10041-2, 2004, CD)
by Roel Steverink, Published 2005-03-01Young composer Remy Stroomer from the Netherlands admires Klaus Schulze and that can be heard in “Following Differences,” the first track. He chooses the same repeat in tones as Schulze does. His playing and use of rhythms is fine and make this track stand out. “Shades in Darkness” is a combination of older 80s Schulze and more modern rhythms. It’s shame that he chooses clichéd dance tunes to end the track. Despite the fullness of sounds “Moving through Dust” excites and really rocks half way. Stroomer captures the emotion with fine, almost ear splitting solos like Schulze did on his mini. Before the finale, which is a reprise of earlier material, we can hear fine sequencing. Stroomer uses a whole battery of analog and digital synths and the sounds he comes up with mostly combine very well. Although not a stunning discovery in synth land, it certainly will give the listener an hour of pleasure.
