51515 Wollo, Erik - Blue Radiance       

I never grow tired of hearing Erik Wollo's music! From album to
another one, the Scandinavian sonic bard always manages to seduce in a
musical genre where the lack of imagination,of passion led inevitably
to boredom. Faithful to his repertoire, Erik Wollo entails us in his
soundscapes tinted with romance and poetry. There where the ethereal
moments are easily next to moments of passion with rhythms which
belong to the antipode of these meditative atmospheres which always
find their way through our quest of charm. “Blue Radiance” is his 19th
solo album since Where it all Begins published in 1983. Once again,
Wollo criss-crosses the road of rhythms and of seraphic moods with 11
tracks which shall seduce you, both for their meditative approaches
than a tiny bit savage.
As a ray of sunshine warming up a morning cheered up by the noises of
nature, the introduction of "Terra Novus 1" warms the edge of the
eardrums of the impatient persons who look forward to approaching this
very last album from Erik Wollo. We are on known territory with this
rivulet which sparkles such as a cloud of prisms in the caresses of
those soft e-winds. Chirping or fragile sparkling sequences, the waves
of this fusion of synth/guitar transports the tearful spectral
harmonies of "Terra Novus 1" towards a delicate structure of rhythm.
Ethereal sequences and percussions weld this ambient rhythm which
swirls weakly, like these winds and these lamentations which feed the
enigmatic sonic panorama of the Scandinavian bard. An immense fall of
noises joins both parts of "Terra Novus", while a slow tribal rhythm,
livened up by rich percussions and caressed by the blue rays of an
ambient and exotic guitar, excites the rhythm a bit trance of "Terra
Novus 2". Soft rhythms, well sat on sequences and percussions a bit
clanic and/or rather spiritual, these first 13 are very forewarning of
the 50 next ones of “Blue Radiance”. To begin with the title-track, of
w h ich the synth rays and the guitar groans lead us toward a very
introspective place. It sounds very Eno on his sublime An Ending which
we find on the Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks album. That goes in
my Ipod; section night music or music to cry on! And it won't be the
only one! Musical pieces such as the very melancholic "Moon Above" or
the very mysterious "Crystal Orbits", which sounds quite like the
title-track, as well as "Earth Sky" are jewels of meditative
tenderness where the tears of guitars are whipping gently the
panoramic layers drawn in the soothing colors of blue radiance. These
are nice ambient and very musical tracks. Way to go Erik! "Pathway"
offers a delicate structure of rhythm with pinched arpeggios which
parade like in a spiral figure in a ballet chorography. Fluid and
jerky, the rhythm binds itself in a kind of ride in the Scandinavian
lands where delicate notes of piano fall like stars in a sky blurred
of auroras borealis. These piano notes forge a melodio u s ambient
lullaby that we also find on the rhythm knotted in the gurglings of
"Osmosis", where guitar chords forge a series of sequenced riffs which
gallop on sober percussions. Here as all over “Blue Radiance” the
winds and the ethereal breezes outline the anchor point of those
melancholic poetic visions which lull the music of Wollo. It's
beautiful, delicate and almost New Age like with the very acoustic
"Sepia" where the meditative acoustic guitar and piano are signing a
very beautiful ballad filled by the soft fragrances of deep
melancholic harmonies. The lamentations of the synth add a spectral
weight to this very beautiful and very meditative track by the way.
"Revealed in Time", as well as "Timemorph", offer structures of very
electronic rhythms. That of "Revealed in Time" grows like a ride in
Steve Roach's universe. The rhythm is soft and well sat on a sober
play of sequences / percussions which spreads a soft latent crescendo.
The notes of guitar form some harmonious loops which roll into a
vertical spiral, catching at the passage some fine strummed arpeggios.
It's rather lively, while "Timemorph" leans on layers of sequences
which flicker such as multiple reflections of prism. The movement is
rather motionless and made us strumming our fingers, amplifying its
pace with livelier sequences of which the fate is knotted around
muffled and furtive pulsations. It's a good electronic rhythm, as Erik
Wollo is capable of signing on each of his albums.
With its mosaic of soft rhythms soft scattered in good meditative
phases and ballads which are near New Age, “Blue Radiance” is what is
made of more musical in the field of EM. Each track puts a smile to
ears while, very nostalgic, Erik Wollo hammers his keys in order to
weave some delicious musical itches. It's Wollo! It's melancholic and
dreamlike. And yes we can literally see his music taking the shape of
these enchanting Scandinavian landscapes that he has the gift to put
in relief on a music which is ve ry personal to him.

16996 Fang, Forrest - Letters To The Farthest Star

As usual for this Chinese-American master of electro-acoustic
world/ambient soundsculpting, it's almost impossible to list all the
instruments he uses during the recording sessions in his Hangar studio
in Berkeley. This inventory is as much broad as it is
exotically-fragranced and it's quite obvious that I won't be able to
exactly recognize them in each particular composition. But what I am
100% sure is that Forrest Fang virtuosically utilizes every single
instrument in his hands with his innate mastery and passion.
Spellbindingly rewarding journey from 2012 entitled "Animism" still
deeply resonates, so I am absolutely thrilled to explore "Letters To
The Farthest Star", Forrest Fang's latest album released at the
beginning of March 2015 on Projekt in traditional 4-panel eco wallet
packaging with stunning cover and inside images by Polish photographer
Maciej Koniuszy and designed by Sam Rosenthal. The mastering job is
again handled at Soundsc a pe by renowned Robert Rich. The newest
album comes in limited edition of 300 copies.

The album unfolds with 18-minute four part suite, gorgeously entitled
"The Unreachable Lands". Shorter "Sunsail" provides the opening with
its soothingly expansive driftscape, which smoothly overlaps to the
next part, "Song Of The Camel". An array of richly perfumed stringed
instruments is intriguingly amalgamated with vivacious drumming, the
result is a truly euphoric, rhythm-driven multi-cultural sonic
tapestry with the signature that can only be Forrest Fang. Ultra deep
drone bliss announces "Water Village", counterpointed here and there
with emerging trenchant outbursts, before ephemerally transmuting
through contemplative gamelan-like tinkles into hauntingly melodious
blend of Eastern Asia, violin-infused flourishes and mesmerically
spiraling rhythm patterns. The interaction of evocative stringed
essences with relaxing downtempos is just amazing on this composition
and as much spectacu lar as the transition from calmly sunrising
horizons to vital daylight waterscapes. "Hermitage" reveals with
enigmatically helixing drones, but soon utterly expressive duet of
piano and violin steals the journey, while ethereal electric guitar
mastery by Jeff Pearce rides atop. Yes, "The Unreachable Lands" have
never been closer!!! The next composition, "Burnt Offerings", with 11
and half minutes the longest piece on album, serenely glides and
slowly expands, before exotic strings, maybe those of cumbus, sneak in
along with ear-tickling tribal drumming. The closing 4 minutes
jaw-droppingly slip into magnificently panoramic, ultra profound
dronescaping sceneries, continuously permeated by intangibly whizzing
subtleties and exquisitely evocative strings of Japanese palm harp.
But I firstly thought these are baglama-like strings. Anyway, this is
Forrest Fang at the very top of his craft, demonstrating his musical
intelligence and ingeniousness, to me, a Hall of Fame composition!!!
Bra v o, Forrest!!! The opening passage of 8-minute "Veldt Hypnosis"
is strongly contemplative with its tinkling sounds merged with
organics and distant sinuous embroideries, but then the composition
quickly turns into lushly scented polyrhythmic scenario sounding quite
twisted, nearly cacophonous and freaky, before evanescing through more
comfortable zones, merging meditative delicacies with bizarrely
hypnotic dreamscapes. The following piece, "Fossils", immediately
hooks the ear with its soothingly gossamer mood, bridged with field
recordings evoking uniquely processed duck quacks and later reinforced
by intensely expressive, slightly reverberating sounds of, most
likely, some out of tune piano. A quite extraordinary, fully rewarding
soundsculpture!!! On "Seven Coronas" ephemeral native American flute
calls interact with fragile tinkles, but soon deeply poignant
cinematic wistfulness of violin captures the lead along with remote
dronescapes, which are persistently permeated by mesmeriz i ng gamelan
delicacies. Flute rejoins towards the end with its nuanced growls and
barks. A true elixir for my ears, feel all the magic of beyond the
ordinary sonic exploration!!! Hats off to the Maestro!!! "Lorenz"
delves into intriguingly desolate subterranean terrains, augmented by
perplexingly ear-piercing and peculiarly undulating drone
transcendence. The closing track, 10 and half minute long "Lines To
Infinity" shifts into gorgeously immense celestial domains, when
utilizing dimmed electric mandolin mastery along with graciously
eternal driftscapes.

"Letters To The Farthest Star" meticulously blend a potpourri of
Middle and Far East musical traditions with Western-infused
atmospheric splendor, always thrillingly multifarious with filigree
trademarking touch, yet exquisitely amalgamated and focused. Forrest
Fang, one of the world's most creative electro-acoustic sound
explorers did it again!!! Immerse deeply into these fascinatingly
perfumed regions and experience these magically transporting letters.
Forrest Fang is one of our most unique guides on these journeys for
three decades. We all must be really grateful for his sonic visions!!!
Thank you, Forrest!!! And by the way, if you prefer digital version of
"Letters To The Farthest Star", you will get three bonus tracks, two
of them are ambient remixes while the third is an ambient
deconstruction of selected three album tracks, so you can add to your
69-minute trip another about 24 minutes. In any case, "Letters To The
Farthest Star" album is one of the indisputable pinnacles of 2015!!!
