Burnside Album Details
Wollo, Erik, Cinematic
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. This is synth and guitar-based melodic electronic/ambient music guiding the listener through expansive rhythmic sequencer-based sections intersperse with ambient zones and soaring electric guitar textures. Wollo’s signature use of shining, consonant chord structures, tender melodic phrasing, and masterful sound design give this release its adventurous and vibrant character. Possessing a boundless, sonorous and textural character, sometimes rhythmic, sometimes ambient and abstract, these aural landscapes possess a sense of drama, full of feeling and powerfully evocative. These soundscapes were created to complement a story or an event, yet still possess their own self-containing inner life.
