In 1985 Emmett released a solo album titled Parallel Galaxy. This recording contained ten pieces, some solos and some duets. The album is available on vinyl, cassette, and was remastered for CD in 1999. One piece, Backyard, that appears on the album was used in the film Dune. The director's cut of the film shows a decorated Stick painted gold playing the role of the mythical "baliset" instrument described in Frank Herbert's novel. Emmett's recording is what we hear when we see Patrick Stewart play the baliset. In 1987 Emmett released his Hands Across the Board video. The tape includes a live solo performance of Emmett followed by an interview.
