arranged with layers of electric guitars, piano, synths and percussion elements.
The Nocturnes is a mini album of never-before-commercially-released material; though four of the movements have been
heard on Erik Wøllo's Myspace page, each gaining over 50, 000 listens. All six parts are remixed, edited and extended;
available for the first time as digital downloads.
This music is inspired by the moods of the nordic nights in Norway, where Erik lives: tranquil, expressive and lyrical.
Even sometimes gloomy. The album contains a wide variety of moods: from quiet slow ambient drones to more light and
lively parts. Erik Wøllo's typical signature melodies hovers over contrasting sections of arpeggiated, eerie, blurred cluster-chords and dark floating backgrounds drones.
These 6 short pieces forms a unique suite of unity, all with beautiful arrangements and a wide spectrum
of colors in harmony.
The image for the cover is of a special plant that grows in Norway, called “Nøkkerose.” It is the flower of the water spirit
and grows in deep and silent lakes.
