At the start of 2012 Emmanuel (as Emmanuel Trep Kormann) came to release his first album, Obscur Etrange, on Barry Adamson‘s Central Control International – a summarisation and analysis of all he has felt and experienced before condensed into a concise, powerful and blissful 40 minute invitation into his world.

Influenced by soul music, movie soundtracks and the various strains of jazz & electronica, this first release is – as could be expected – a sum of all his past experience but also strives to create something completely new in order to fulfil what has become clear is his calling: to travel to destinations invented by himself through his life’s colour and sound – to experience all the possible worlds that his intuition has whispered to him and that his music is bringing to life.
