Silent Currents 3
DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, Projekt Records, 2013
This digital-only release complements the previous released hardcopy album "Silent Currents", offering an evocative instrumental suite in thirteen continuous parts. The press sheet explains "Silent Currents 3" though differs as the live material from the previous occasion served as a basis for a new sonic voyage, where the music was re-arranged with several elements added in Erik's studio in Norway later on.
Within this almost 58-minute release, Erik explores innovative electronic and ambient landscapes with floating currents and slow-motion structures, mixing both long sustaining drone zones and sequenced, rhythmical passages while adding catchy melodic bits on the spot.
So do yourself a favor and get this ethereal, highly imaginative and at times even melancholic sounding experience if you already got the lengthy predecessor. I reckon you won’t be disappointed, although overall it’s a tad less strong.
