This is a remastered rerelease of Wolfgang Voigt's GAS project of the mid 90s to early 2000s - 4 cds of beautiful, masterful electronica. Voigt was one of the founders of the German techno label Kompakt. The new release is packaged in a very attractive box with the cds in printed card sleeves of fairly abstract 'nature' photos. No text except 4 complementary inserts of more nature shots. Minimal, but gorgeous, and a limited collector's item at an amazing price. Buy it buy it buy it. End.

I lost track of ambient sometime in the mid nineties. Positive reviews and the relatively low price made me try this one out and it cannot be faulted. "Golden era" Aphex spring to mind (ie both Ambient Works albums) . Like the best Ambient it envelops your entire being when listening to it as time becomes irrelevant. I cannot now imagine living without it. Each album has a tone to it whilst all link together as an inspirational piece of work. Words fail me.... buy while you can as this will be treasured as a work of genius in years to come.

Make no mistake, these releases are sublime, gorgeous and essential. I'm even basing a small portion of my PhD on them! I would easily give them five stars but...

The remastering in this value set has ruined some of the preciousness in the tracks, to the point where the subtle aesthetics have been blasted away. Unfortunately this is particularly noticeable on the Konigsforst CD where Untitled 5 - probably the most revered track in the entire canon has been distorted out of existence.

This is a massive shame. The set looks like excellent value for money, but please search out second hand copies of Konigsforst and compare on headphones especially. This might seem pedantic, but these pieces are all about precise tonal colours and precision.

Massively disappointing, especially as the originals are hard to track down now.

GAS is the brainchild of Wolfgang Voigt, owner of influential electronic music imprint Kompakt. With countless records under different pseudonyms plus owning various record labels in the past, Voigt is considered a bit of a legend in the field of ambient techno. Nothing exemplifies this more than his GAS project.

Nah und Fern (which translates as Near and Far) collects together the 4 hard-to-find albums released by Voigt under the GAS psudonym between 1996 and 2000. Basically if you're looking for essential ambient techno then you stop here.

I feel that viewing the four albums as a whole makes them feel more substantial than if the albums were re-released separately, which was a great choice to begin with. The albums are presented in a box with card sleeves which serve to portion out the tracks in their respective albums. It's one body of work with one goal, one presence with only tiny dynamic and stylistic shifts to separate them. There is no need to separate them.

GAS is utterly transcendental music. Heavily processed strings, piano, guitar and I imagine a whole host of other sounds and eerie soundscapes comprise the murk of GAS' overall sound. Each wave of sound threads into another and warps and flows in and out of consciousness creating a dense, soothing cotton-wool atmosphere to immerse yourself into. Half of the tracks are pinned down by an unrelenting techno pulse that really does sound like a heart beat emanating from a vast murky cavern.

It is creepy music but it's somehow calming and soothing at the same time - it carries you off. It also occasionally provides a blank canvas for whatever emotion that surfaces, takes it and carries it away with the atmospheric lava-flow of pulsing beats and cotton-wool soundscapes.
