ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Released in the summer of 2016, Keith Gehle’s fourth CD (Space and Time) is a sincere, heart felt journey of healing through instrumental sounds and compositions. The recording features steel and nylon string guitars as well as piano, cello, flute, oboe, strings and pads. Keith wrote the music and produced the recordings over several years after the unexpected death of his brother Ken in January of 2010. The process of grieving an unimaginable loss coupled with writing and recording music as a tribute to his late brother was extremely difficult and at times painful. The resulting work is honest, pure and for Keith a healing endeavor. This is by far his best recording and something that will surely resonate with those who wrestle with this journey of life and its occasional loss. As one listener recently wrote:


"I would say Space and Time is your most 'spiritual' work. With your album I feel lots of existential longing… It’s apparent you’re drawing inspiration from the stillness of nature and dusky silhouettes. I’ve been very stressed lately so this is exactly what I needed."

- David, New York, NY

From MainlyPiano
"Space and Time" is the fourth album from guitarist Keith Gehle, and what a beauty it is! Mastered by Tom Eaton for the Imaginary Road Studio, the eleven original pieces are performed on acoustic guitar with a mix of piano, cello, flute, oboe, strings, and synth pads - all played by Gehle. The music was written and recorded over a period of years as a tribute to Keith’s brother, Ken, after his unexpected death in early 2010. The process of composing the music was a journey that helped to heal the loss of someone so close and resulted in what is being called Gehle’s best work to date (I haven’t heard his earlier albums). Most of the pieces are more reflective than sad, so this is not a “downer” album. For me, the music is hopeful, heartfelt, and very sincere in addition to being exceptionally beautiful. Although Gehle considers himself to be a classical guitarist, he is well-versed in a wide variety of musical genres. With a Bachelor of Music degree in guitar performance from the University of Georgia, he began his performing career in the late 1980’s. Gehle has made many appearances on television and radio, directs the undergraduate guitar studies program for Cocoa Falls College in northeast Georgia, performs regularly, and teaches privately. As a reviewer, I never know what will arrive in the mailbox, but when it’s a treasure like this album, reviewing is an absolute pleasure!

"Space and Time" begins with “Waiting For the Sun,” a gentle piece that is both reflective and pensive. While it is a very uncomplicated piece, the emotions expressed are deep and honest. From the fade-in at the beginning, “Lavender Sky” is much lighter and has the feeling of a folk song. Flutes carry most of the melody while the guitar gives it energy. “November Memories” returns to a more reflective mood with flute and strings adding soft tonal colors. The album includes two tone poems, and “Tone Poem No. 6” is subtitled “Space and Time.” It begins as a light flute-like drone with a simple piano melody over it. Guitar enters with a counterpoint to the piano, giving it a somewhat Baroque structure. Piano and strings provide an introduction to “Walking” at a nice, leisurely pace. When the guitar joins in, the tempo stays relaxed and easy as the various instruments weave their different themes into a lovely ensemble piece. “My Setting Sun” is a quiet beauty that is both dreamy and hopeful. “Coopers Creek” includes the sound of a sparkling creek behind the gentle guitar through some of the piece. A few other instruments add subtle nuances, but this is mostly a peaceful guitar solo. “Tone Poem No. 2” is subtitled “Stars of the Desert Sky” and is an ensemble piece for guitar, flute, piano, and strings. Gently flowing with percussive flashes of starry light against a black sky, it’s a soothing close to a great album.

"Space and Time" is one of the best guitar albums I’ve heard this year! Very highly recommended!

Review from Journeyscapes Radio
Keith Gehle is a guitarist and composer whose album “Space and Time” features both acoustic instruments and synthesized elements. Comprised of eleven tracks spanning thirty-eight minutes, the album was mastered by Tom Eaton for Imaginary Road Studios, while all compositions and arrangements were performed by Keith Gehle. Acoustic guitar is the album’s lead instrument throughout, which is intricately woven into the silky fabric of a musical ensemble that variably consists of piano, flute, strings and synths.

The opening piece, “Waiting for the Sun”, signals an approaching dawn, where acoustic guitar is accentuated by hazy tones and textures that lend an overall warm yet spacious effect to the composition. Continuing in this motif is “Lavender Sky”, which opens with beautifully cascading guitar accompanied by piano and synthesizer. Breezy touches of flute further compliment the piece, adding to its distinct seasonal feel, as one can easily imagine delicate autumn leaves dancing in the wind of an early dawn. “The Escaping Light” is a notable piece that opens with solemn strings that are followed by a more melancholic guitar melody, as ever-so-subtle piano and flute provide an added touch of tenderness throughout. One especially intriguing piece is “Tone Poem No. 6 (Space and Time)”, which displays a wonderful interplay of guitar and piano. As if one instrument represents space and the other represents time, the guitar follows the piano lead like that of a dancing couple, while they become increasingly surrounded by sparkling textures and suspended strings. “Cooper’s Creek” is another particular highlight that begins with the gentle sounds of flowing water. It is soon followed by a notably warm and earthy guitar melody, making for a composition that feels intimately connected to nature while nestled somewhere between evening and dawn. Perhaps saving the best for last, “Tone Poem No. 2 (Stars of the Desert Sky)” makes for a perfect conclusion and is easily my favorite piece on the album. Here, a hazily atmospheric ensemble of instruments alludes to a starlit sky, which is conveyed by an ethereal enmeshment of flute, strings and a slightly poignant guitar melody.

One thing I especially appreciate about this album is how the guitars (which were built by Kent Everett) emit a beautiful, velvety tone, which is further enhanced by the warmly-light soundscapes of the arrangements. Although melodically moving in nature, there is a particular emphasis on mood and atmosphere throughout, which Keith has perfectly captured by mostly taking a subtle and perfectly understated approach. A simplistically lovely and peaceful album, “Space and Time” is like a welcome breath of fresh air that is sure to appeal to many fans of new age instrumental and acoustic guitar ensemble music.
