Edward J Roller The pay what you can window for this one reminded me that Erik's two latest releases needed to move from my wishlist to collection. Done. All of Erik's Projekt releases are outstanding, as are the collaborations with Ian Boddy, Jeffrey Fayman and Steve Roach. They are definitely worth the purchase.
Thanks Sam and Erik.

LazerShoes It's rare to find an album that will so completely chill out my headspace. This delivers relaxation, washing away stress. Superbly crafted music with a beautiful interplay of guitar, piano and synths. Visions is such a gorgeous song, I wish it would never end. Favorite track: Visions.

about

Vision – the state of being able to see; an experience within a dream or trance.

This remastered $7.98 budget-priced collection brings together standout tracks from the twelve Projekt releases by this renowned Norwegian electronic artist. Visions highlights the cascading melodic and consonant lyrical side of Erik’s intuitively-crafted soundworlds. On these eight expressively performed and immaculately produced instrumentals, Erik’s luscious sense of harmony and narrative mix with insistent electronic rhythms. Propulsion and cyclical movement leave an invisible thread of optical insight in the wake of these essential moments.

Led by electric guitar, guitar synthesizer, and keyboard melodies, the songs build upon arcs of rhythms and layers of sequencer patterns with dramatic percussive punctuations, pulsating arpeggios and deep analog basses.

From the creative and deep journey reflected in 2010’s Gateway, to the expansive and wide-ranging landscapes on his latest 2015 EP, Echotides, these tracks reflect music rich in depth and colors with echoes of reminiscences and imaginary places, epic dimensions and a minimalist’s restrained elegance. “Misty Blue” and “Within These Walls (remix),” having only previously appeared on various artists collections, find Erik exploring versatile and perceptive territory.

Showcasing the beauty and elegance of tracks with a visual, crisp and immediate quality, Visions invites the listener into an hour of the impressive and kinetic music of Erik Wøllo.

“Wøllo’s music has an exuberance, an energy, that shoots straight through me. It’s the way the e-bow pulls notes out of the guitar and off into the far horizon, rising the whole time. It’s the analog bliss of those sharp sequencer lines bouncing out a rhythm. It’s the points where things dial down to an edge-of-ambient quiet that’s still loaded with kinetic potential. …the voyage is cool, smooth and pleasant.” – Hypnagogue

“For Erik Wøllo success is a simple measure of dedication to his artistic path. The beauty of his life in music is that every moment is a phenomenon described in a way that is both precise and deeply felt. With each release he becomes sharper and more confident. At the extreme high end of his skill set, Erik Wøllo offers an explanation of what it means to be human; … (his) epic realizations offer us a means to connect with this forgotten fundamental feeling.” – StarsEnd.org
