Some time ago, these recordings were rediscovered between a pile of other material, that has been stored in my steadily growing archive from over the years, with many Patchwork, FSP, Emmens&Heij sessions. After listening to it again, we thought it would be a nice idea to do something with these recordings, although we didn’t feel the need to release it as an CD. By that time, Dave Law, Ian Boddy and Graham Getty were just starting the MusicZeit download site, and we thought it would be a good idea to present it as an exclusive MusicZeit download.

More Info

Patchwork are Dutch musicians Rene Jansen and Ruud Heij.

Rene Jansen started composing in 1985, he listened to music from Jarre and Vangelis which are still his favourite artists. It inspired him to compose electronic and film music. Later he got the opportunity to compose music for television programs and documentaries. His current interest is for music of soundtrack composers, like for instance John Carpenter and Brad Fiedel. Nowadays Rene is collaborating with Anois, a Dutch band, playing a modern version of Celtic music.

Ruud Heij started to create electronic music in 1982, when he bought his first synthesizer. After years of listening to artists like Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and Michael Hoenig, it is obvious that he is much inspired by aforementioned artists. During the 80’s he collected a considerable amount of, now classic, vintage synthesizers, of which he still owns some. Today, Ruud is also a member of Free System Projekt, and Gert Emmens & Ruud Heij, and was a member of Kubusschnitt, for some years.

In 1994 Rene and Ruud met, and did a session together in Ruud’s studio. This session turned out so well, that they decided to record an complete album together. This resulted in the very successful Patchwork CD-R. In between, Rene and Ruud recorded some sessions with Udo Scheyka from Germany (now released as exclusive download from MusicZeit), as well as composing some tracks for various Alfa Centauri CD releases.
