Burnside Album Details

Erik Wollo, Gateway

“CD of the Month. Erik Wollo is an architect of ambience, a poet of electronic landscapes… There’s no denying the way he sends you piloting down canyons, soaring between mountains and launching on trajectories somewhere toward the heavens. Wollo’s music turns an everyday commute into a fantasy journey.” — John Diliberto, Echoes Radio. Since the mid-80s, noted Norwegian electronic / ambient guitarist, synthesist and composer Erik Wøllo has released a string of mesmerizingly melodic and original albums culminating in Gateway, his 14th solo release. It’s a fine-tuned collection of carefully crafted compositions; electro-symphonies morph through a wide variety of moods, guitar expositions and crescendos. With a minimalist’s restrained elegance, the music is visual, kindling the feeling of nature inspired by the Nordic landscapes of Wøllo’s homeland: dramatic, vast, and untouched landscapes symbolizing purity and beauty. “Wøllo’s work is the musical equivalent of crossing a majestic landscape, over the earth and beneath the stars.” – Chuck van Zyl / StarsEnd, WXPN Radio
