A monumental statement. Slowly-drifting kaleidoscopic passages to charismatic compelling melodies.
Different Spacesfrom renowned Norwegian electronic musician Erik WÃ¸llo is a diverse and sweeping 2CD release. Spanning 2 hours and 45 minutes, his 21st album is a monumental statement ranging from slowly-drifting kaleidoscopic passages, epic soaring guitar melancholy, upbeat ever-changing sequenced cycles, and charismatic compelling melodies. Possessing a sense of drama and storytelling, the compositions explore and expand upon his 35 years of musical experience. Using electric guitar as his primary melodic instrument, WÃ¸llo creates sustained and seamless tapestries revealing wide-ranging and wide-angled compositions masterfully orchestrated. The music traverses the different spaces that occupy an artistâs creative thoughts across mesmerizing landscapes of distinctive panoramas, rhythmic realms, and engaging, engulfing atmospheres.
Expose: âA bountiful and consummately enjoyable journey, the 22 tracks filled with visionary compositions and far reaching concepts that seem to guide the listener through numerous portals and cinematic perspectives, with an immersive and dreamy quality that one can easily get lost within.â
Erik says, âI wanted to do it differently this time: longer pieces, open and extended, spreading out the sonic elements and transitions in time. Last year I composed a lot of material; there were over 40 tracks to choose from and to really express the variety, a 2CD release was clearly what I had in mind.â
Different Spacesis electronic music with an evocative and symbolic approach. Erikâs background in 70s progressive rock shines through. The sequencer aesthetic and other aspects of the eraâs technology form the basic foundation on many of these tracks. Modern pulsing and immersive soundscapes provide measured momentum to steadily move through the morphing patterns and textures.
This vast release takes the listener to different places and spaces on uniquely compelling auditory episodes.
