Redjy Emond biography
Redjy ÉMOND is a Québec composer, arranger, programmer and keyboard player inspired by Rick WAKEMAN and Keith EMERSON. His classical background, reflected in his music, is mainly Bach and Moussorgsky, and his electronic guru is Japanese composer TOMITA. After studying at the Conservatory, he started teaching while perfecting his computer techniques at the keyboard. In the early 90's, he became involved with several tribute bands (PINK FLOYD, GENESIS, TRIUMVIRAT, ELP, OFFENBACH) and also composed some film scores. He then fulfilled a life-long dream and self-produced two excellent albums, "Sphere" and "Tension", displaying expert performance with material made up of rich compositions in a keyboard/bass/drum format.

"Spheres" (97) consists of 15 short tracks spread over barely 47 minutes; "Tension" (02) is about the same length but spread over half the number of tracks. Both albums are quality productions made up of delicately crafted and exquisitely colourful themes, reminiscent of ELP, Rick WAKEMAN, TRACE and PAR LINDH - imagine a purely synthetic and instrumental ELP with carefully programmed bass and drum (about as close to perfection as you'll get, short of real musicians).

Definitely recommended to fans of ELP and Rick WAKEMAN.

3 stars For those who love a real keyboard workout will love REDJY EDMOND's "Sphere". With strong musical allusions to Rick WAKEMAN, Par LINDH and Keith EMERSON, REDJY EDMOND writes a similar highly technical and creative musical journey. "Sphere" is 47 minutes of delicately crafted, cerebral songs which are played with highest of musicianship and emotion. REDJY utilizes a very wide range of digital and analog keyboards to bring forward many different moods and atmospheres. "Sphere" is full of a multitude of tempo changes and offers the listener many magical musical passages. "Sphere" is an exhilerating album which I consider a top notch piece of electronic progressive rock. Recommended...!

3 stars Here you have a French-Canadian keyboard wizard, who has a whole arsenal of various keyboards to his help, for example: pipe organ, Hammond, harpsichord, piano, and multiple synths. It took REDJY EMOND two years to compose, program, finance and produce the album "Sphere". Two years that in retrospect seems to have been worthwhile. Rick WAKEMAN and Keith EMERSON seem to be the main influences together with classical composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach and Moussorgsky. The two Swedes Pär Lindh and Bo Hansson are a close comparison too. The album is instrumental with fifteen tracks that mix 70's progressive rock with classical music. The only thing to wish for is a real bass player and percussionist. That would have done this album worth a top rating. However Redjy compensate this in his very talented and masterful playing that makes you forget all that. The production is very good too. My favourite tracks are "Impact" (here's some Pär Lindh comparisons) and the four-track suite "Ancestral". I warmly recommend this album to all of you who's into EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER as well as Rick WAKEMAN.
