From the first notes on this recording its clear Erik’s characteristic sound design has stayed the same, lining up easily next to the emotive instrumental music of e-guitars, assorted rhythms and synths we’ve accustomed to in previous years.
Imaginative, sparkling and with an eye to detail are keywords for his sonorous journey-oriented music. Meanwhile, the unhurried sonic scenery is still infused by that distinct vibe found in Arctic ambient music and comes up with a melancholic (under)current shimmering through.
“Blue Radiance” offers no surprises, just straightforward and solid musicianship from a Norwegian multi-instrumentalist who knows his ways into lush, meticulously crafted soundworlds.
