Berkdrums December 2018 I will never forget, and this album is linked to that amazing memory.. Thanks to my dear friend Richard Gürtler (ambient-aficionado pur sang / the living ambient-encyclopedia / collector / knight in battle to save the physical output of ambient artists from extinction...ánd dear friend like I mentioned..) I heard from him about this amazing ambient-festival in Belgium: B-WAVE.. for me a 2-hour drive, for Richard about 10(!). We finally got to meet and: see Erik perform live!, a dream come true for me, really. Then this album was on a table.., just like that, out of the blue.. Knowing all of Erik’s work, this one is really really different and it hit me like a flash of lightning.. It’s so introvert, a work of beauty that sounds so fragile to me, so very deep.. For me this is one of my favorite works of Erik, and I think that says something from someone who owns every album from this ambient-maestro!! And the amazing memories will live on with this jewel of an album...

Scott I can tell this is Erik's music even without his trademark melodies. I have no favorite track after my initial session with the album, but it did help me make it through an afternoon of anxiety and nausea. A testament to the healing power of music!

about

“Erik Wøllo’s music always takes you to another place.” – John Diliberto

INFINITE MOMENTS is an hour of ambient electronic music from veteran Norwegian composer Erik Wøllo. Across nearly four decades, 40 albums encompass Erik’s unique mix of layered synthesizers, melodic guitars and expansive percussion. This time he takes a different approach — there are no synthesizers! The album is performed entirely on electric guitars processed with the diffused sustain of the EBow and layered note structures of harmonizers. No rhythms, only long, vast and engaging soundscapes. Minimal, extended and infinite in its essence, the album is a meditative inward journey of stillness and reflection — an emotional mapping of the mind, beautifully weightless and contemplative.

These six long, luminous and timeless moments are built upon multiple independent guitar loops of various length, overlapping and merging into slow drifting sections of continuously evolving combinations. Each loop was recorded live in the studio using a different type of guitar creating rich ensembles of unity. It’s a detailed musical language of floating guitars: hearing the strings resonate and vibrate between the fingers and the Ebow creates brilliant and sparkling tones that shine and stand out as unique and organic.

“I envisioned a concept using just a few essential instrumentations,” Erik reflects, “with a minimalist approach where the melody and accompaniment are one. Each track has its own identity, yet all have a similar calm, longing and endless feeling. The color palette is essentially more reduced than my other work, and the tracks retain a similar suspended level throughout. Here are no crescendos or high points. This is not so much about a narrative telling a story, but rather more like a satellite floating free and weightless in space.”

Erik continues, “When I listen to these tracks with these ever-changing structures I experience a static state of mind that continues unchanged. It could go on and last forever never ending where time seems to stand still. It is very focused where nothing else seems to matter.”

INFINITE MOMENTS is a new adventure in sonic dimension from Erik Wøllo. It’s a contemplative solitude, a dreamy portal of shimmering and everlasting emotions.
