Three of Erik Wøllo s influential early works are reborn and released anew in this limited, signed and numbered set of special remastered editions. Originally released between 1985 and 1992, these albums have long been out of print and difficult to find on CD. This set presents all three classic albums, along with eight previously unreleased tracks from the era, all remastered with depth and clarity that far surpass the original releases. Each CD is housed in a dual gatefold-style jacket, and features elegant, updated artwork based on the original versions.
This collection represents a seminal time for Wøllo’s artistic development; it was during this period that Erik found his distinct musical voice, skillfully defining and perfecting his unmistakeable sound.
Although he had recorded two earlier solo albums, it was on 1985′s Traces that Erik found his signature sound. “Traces is a very special album to me,”” explains Wollo. “I felt I really got into something new and I have explored these ideas on several albums since.”
IMAGES OF LIGHT
Images of Light was originally released in Norway in 1989, and then in the USA in 1990. Expanding on the distinctive electronic style that first appeared on Traces, Wollo delivers adventurous and vibrant compositions performed on guitars and synthesizers. The true potential of Wollo’s shining, consonant chord structures, tender melodic phrasing, and masterful sound design was realized on Images of Light.
Originally released in 1992, Solstice is an album with a pure, yet sophisticated electronic palette that features Wøllo’s cinematic atmospheres at their finest. Melodic beauty adorns a solid rhythmic structure, and a sense of minimalism is present throughout the entire album.
