"Remy Stroomer makes music in the vein of Klaus Schulze circa late 80's - early 90's, which separates him from the bulk of Neo-Prog EM acts that seem to focus on the 70's / early 80's Berlin style."
Artemi Pugachov (Encyclopedia of Electronic Music)

Since the early 90s, Remy registered an uncountable amount of compositions, improvisations, try-outs, sketches, studies and performances.
Remy always felt the need to release a lot of this material, but with such a huge variety of recordings, it was never possible to release everthing.
During the selection process for the released REMY-albums, a lot of music was rejected. Simply because these tracks didn't fit into the concept or feeling of the specific release.
A large amount of unfinished tracks, sketches, etc. will definitely never be released. And there also is enough stuff that is absolutely not good enough by means of technique and recording.
But through "Archives" there is this possibility to publish and share a lot of these recordings. Recordings that otherwise would never have seen the light.
Besides the fact that "Archives" offers music that could never be heard before, it gives the perfect insight into Remy's musical and artistic world, as well as it might also help to 'understand' the direction Remy's music evolved into.
"Archives 5" contains material from 2002.
