A remarkably visceral electronic album. It’s a dynamic collection of earthy, hypnotic, and pulsating sound textures.

Echoes Radio:“A gorgeous electronic expanse, much of it composed in the aftermath of a deep and tragic loss.”

Norwegian sound-artist Erik Wøllo’s 23rd album delivers a collection of carefully crafted compositions: introspective, yet melodic electronic music. It is pensive and reflective upon passing and transition; several sequencer-driven pieces contrast with surrounding dreamlike ambient soundscapes. Wøllo’s mood is contemplative and expressively intense, capturing an authentic moment in time.

Wøllo says, “For me,Threshold Pointis a musical idea of an actual transformation: to cross a threshold, going from one form to another… into a change. Unfolding over time, gradually bridging and leading into new states or places. In my music, patterns and evolution are basic elements, always retaining an emotional connection with the melodies and the textures.”

Wøllo offers a calm, otherworldly and self-contained sound onThreshold Point. A reflection on changing states, passing a threshold, evolving into something new, this is a musical expression where the melody and the accompaniment merge to create an equilibrium of sound, as if watching something stopped in a camera frame.

“Some of these pieces were written in 2016 under special and tragic circumstances,” Wollo reflects. “I was staying in Brooklyn for some weeks while my sister grew more ill and died. I recorded in a tiny room at her neighbor’s apartment on Henry Street. I sense these circumstances influenced the music, making it more ethereal and humble than some of my other works. WhereDifferent Spaceswas a bit of a memorial to her, these pieces were composed earlier during the midst of the crisis.”

WithThreshold Point, Erik Wøllo has conjured a remarkably visceral electronic album. It’s a dynamic collection of earthy, hypnotic, and pulsating sound textures; the work of a passionate artist at the forefront of the electronic music genre.
