The title album (Gas - Gas) begins with a beautiful piece of ambience which is one of my favourite across the box. It's followed by Gas II, a longer work, with a muffled drum which pervades the entire piece. The criticism of this album is that pieces aren't coherent and lack a unifying theme like later work. Zauberberg (Magic Mountain) is probably the darkest album of the lot. The tracks are very dubby and obscure, and Zauberberg really grows over repeat listens.
The title album (Gas - Gas) begins with a beautiful piece of ambience which is one of my favourite across the box. Although calling "Nah Und Fern" a hallmark in Kompakt's now ten year discography only serves to further highlight the label's recent slide in quality, it's hard not to do so, especially considering the great impression the four albums made at their original release and their scarcity today.

Nah und Fern is a boxed set collecting the four albums released by Wolfgang Voigt under the Gas alias between 1996 and 2000, released on 10 June 2008.
Gas - Nah und Fern When Arnold Schoenberg devised twelve-tone serialism in the 1920s, he claimed it would ensure the supremacy of German music for the next hundred years". The first moment of Gas is archetypal, a thick symphonic chord, but the rest of the album is more tentative: track 2 (all pieces on all albums are untitled) has the same aquatic chug as Wassermann, here lost at sea; while track 4 is equally jarring, pairing Stockhausen’s loom from Trans with the spit and crackle of fire.

Each album is bound to suck you into its own dream world, where lapsed shoegazers and chillout room veterans go to die, within a matter of seconds. The set is appropriately a Kompakt release, not just because the person behind the label and the music is one and the same; practically everyone who has contributed to the label's annual Pop Ambient series is a Voigt descendant.
In 2000, the final album from German producer Wolfgang Voigt's Gas project, Pop, finished in the position in Pitchfork's Top 20 albums of the year. The album looks back and forward simultaneously as Voigt seems to be probing the limits of what the project could be. The same starry backward guitar bit that first appeared on the third track of the debut returns on the fourth track here, now yoked to a subtle double-time kick-drum that gives a sense of blood-rushing excitement.
