STYLE:
Wøllo's latest exploration into the creative possibilities of the guitar is rich with texture and melody,
highly sculpted and detailed - a pulsing vibrant and atmospherically three-dimentional experience.
Influenced by his travels to the North American Southwest, Wøllo manifests the natural wonders
of the area through his instrument, painting profound vistas with many types of acoustic, electric,
electronic, and classical guitar voices.

Ambient, rhythmic and melodic music stylistic in the same ambient era as "Guitar Nova".
Also influences from "Wind Journey" and "Emotional Landscapes".
Layers of various acoustic guitars, with percussion and some electronic treatments.

The album includes 2 cover versions of Computerlove and In the Hall of Mirrors,
both written by the german group Kraftwerk.
Originally synthetic and computerized music, here for the first time performed on acoustic guitars!
