SILENT CURRENTS 3 is a digital-only album based on a 2010 live performance at the famous Star's End radio show in Philadelphia. This show was Erik's third Star's End performance; the previous two were released on the double CD Silent Currents/Live at Star's End (Projekt PRO262, 2011). Where this release differs is that all the live material serves as a basis for a new sonic voyage. The music is re-arranged with several elements added this year in Erik's studio in Norway. Within this release, Erik explores innovative electronic and ambient landscapes with floating currents and slow-motion structures.

The sound is a mix of both long sustaining zones and sequenced, rhythmical passages. The melodic elements are often distant and blended with the contrasting sections of eerie, blurred cluster-chords and dark floating background drones. There are several distinct rhythmical pieces, though the primary focus remains the deep drones. The music drifts; sections morph organically into each other, forming an atmospheric instrumental suite in thirteen continuous parts.

This ethereal sonic experience will take the listener on a journey of music with a highly cinematic and imaginative quality.

Star’s End hosted by Chuck Van Zyl, is one of the longest-running radio programs of ambient music in the world. Since 1976, this show has provided the Philadelphia broadcast area with weekly midnight musical adventures. Erik says, “I have been kindly invited to perform at Star's End multiple times. To perform 'on the air' late at night in the radio studio contributed to these unique and inspired performances. In this setting, it felt very natural to do some downtempo and quiet, floating ambient music."
