HEMMA (2022) - Nordic Noir Pt. 2

Hemma is part 2 of what will become my Nordic Noir-trilogy: post-cinematic music inspired by the overwhelming landscapes in Norway.

'Hemma' is the Norwegian word for 'home'. Why? This record offers you once again a glimpse into my inner world, my home, my home studio. That is where I create my musical stories. Just like I did with Heis, I wrote, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered this album at home. I play keys, guitar, some bass and a lot of virtual instruments.

At the same time Norway feels more and more like a second home. Field recordings made during our Nordic trips are the core of Hemma: the sounds in the Sognefjord, of the ferry in the Lysefjord, tinkling bottles in the tax free shop at sea, lonely Nordic sheep, night birds,the car door and lot's of ambient noises. But you'll also hear sounds recorded at home: Martha, our snoring cat and Barrie, our fluffy husky.

Hemma is available in a deluxe gatefold 180 gram vinyl, on cd and via streaming.

HEIS (2020) - Nordic Noir Pt.1

This is the first album I made completely on my own. From composing to performing over mixing and mastering. Field recordings from Norway and Iceland emphasize the soundtrack quality of the music. You will hear a lot of sounds that I recorded while travelling in Norway and Iceland: the Hurtigrutten at the harbour of Tromsø, the fløibanen in Bergen, an old elevator in a hotel in Bergen, birds in the Lofoten, the water in the Lyngenfjord, Nordic sheep and some lost cars passing by, Kría birds, the Geysir, the door of an old Toyota Corolla, voices on the streets and at home.

HEIS is available in a deluxe gatefold 180 gram vinyl & cd package

BRISKEY - Previous Albums

From the first recordings in 1999 until the final album 'before-during-after' in 2009, Briskey evolved from a one-man project to an organic vivid live experience. Ten years, four albums, concerts at major venues and festivals in Belgium, but also in Greece, Italy, France and the Netherlands: Briskey was at the heart of the nu jazz scene. My compositions and electronica fused seamlessly with superb live musicians as Bart Maris (trumpet), Nicolas Roseeuw (sax), Tom Verschoore (trombone), Dorona Alberti (vocals), Sara Gilis (keys), Isolde Lasoen (drums),...

before-during-after (Briskey, 2009)

The last Briskey album, but at the same time the first 'Gert Keunen'-album, introducing my cinematic style.


Scarlett Roadhouse (Briskey, 2006)

The second album: big band samples and electronica in combination with a full live band.


Briskey Big Band Live At Ancienne Belgique (Briskey, 2008)

The moment suprême of Briskey: live on stage at the famous Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, with a 14 piece jazz big band. 


Cucumber Lodge (Briskey, 2003)

Briskey's successful debut in the nu jazz scene of that time. A hybrid marriage between jazz samples and electronic beats.
