For me, Norwegian multi-instrumental artist Erik Wøllo belongs to the league of artists making it hard to keep up with the high speed of releases. “Inversions” was fully recorded in Mr. Wøllo’s house in his kitchen as well as his living room. To create the outcome, Erik used various electric guitars, looping pedals, and effects but no synthesizers.
Instantly recognizable as a Wøllo-work of sonic art, the release features a series of connected instrumental pieces as well as intuitive, exciting sketches all breathing something of a pleasant but darker sensibility. It’s a complete sound world, a nicely rendered suite in 7 short minimalist episodes with a total length of 30 minutes built upon long suspended notes, drones, and textures. As such paint a contemplative, almost meditative sonic canvas before the listeners’ ears that heads toward a state of serenity, stillness, and reflection as it floats along.
