New Album - HEIS

It's been silent for ten years, but music was and is and always will be my main focus. This is the first album I made completely on my own. From composing to performing over mixing and mastering. I like to call it 'post cinematic music': music that tells sonical stories, with elements from dark jazz, neo classical, downtempo electronica and post rock/industrial. Field recordings from Norway and Iceland emphasize the soundtrack quality of the music. 

Release date: nov 20, 2020

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

- one exclusive track only available on cd! -

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.
