Cinematic’s nearly fifty minutes of melodic mesmerizing electronic music is shimmeringly sweeping and emotionally engaging. The eight song collection remixes and blends previously unreleased material (from 1998 through 2003) created as soundtracks for video, documentary film and multimedia. The melodic synth and guitar-based electronic/ambient music guides the listener through diverse, cinematic perspectives. The expansive rhythmic sequencer-based sections intersperse with ambient zones and soaring electric guitar textures. These are soundscapes created to complement a story or an event, yet still possess their own self-containing inner life.
“Scoring for other media is a quite different experience from composing for album releases,” Erik reflects. “It forces me to take different artistic solutions when diving into other’s creative worlds. Often this makes the music more passionate, adventurous and storytelling than what I usually compose. These pieces show the depth and beauty of the process. I have a lot of material from these years in my archives; after some intense studio sessions and reflecting back, I found that these tracks sort of belonged together. They all have a boundless, sonorous and textural character. Sometimes very rhythmic, sometimes very ambient and abstract. Aural landscapes that possess a sense of drama, full of feeling and powerfully evocative.”
Wollo’s signature use of shining, consonant chord structures, tender melodic phrasing, and masterful sound design give Cinematic its adventurous and vibrant character.
All songs, edited, remixed and remastered in 2017.
