Winter Tide is all-new electronic music composed for Erik Wøllo’s concert at SoundQuest Fest 2021. Wøllo’s one-hour continuous live set is now presented as a suite in 8 parts, capturing the magical musical mood of his effortless and beautiful performance.
“I wrote this music at my cottage,” Wøllo reflects, “which is located in a remote mountain landscape in Norway. Those weeks in March had nice, cold winter weather with an unusually high amount of snow. This pure, vast and dramatic scenery influenced the music. Winter Tide seemed a natural title for the whole suite. Imagine high snowy mountain peaks, frosty smoking rivers, sunlit hoarfrost trees, a cinematic landscape seen through ice rose windows of a warm cottage. A dynamic and sometimes eruptive and expressive performance results.”
Mastered at the highest audio quality possible, these tracks unveil the great subtleties and dimension of this captivating deep-listening performance.
SoundQuest Fest, first experienced as a live festival in Tucson, Arizona in 2010, is the creation of electronic music pioneer Steve Roach. Erik performed in 2010 and was invited again for the 2021 event. A worldwide gathering of artists and audience members united for this 3-day online festival, a groundbreaking moment for the genre: a continuous flow of streamed performances, audio-video wonder worlds and deep immersion zones. Wøllo was included alongside other highly-respected artists including Robert Rich, Michael Stearns, Ian Boddy, Chuck van Zyl, Jeff Greinke, Serena Gabriel and Steve Roach.
Gapless-flow fans: the entire 8-track album is presented as a continuous current as track #9 on the digital.
