Deborah Martin/Erik Wøllo: "KINISHBA"
October 06 2023
CLOUD OF STRINGS New album released on October 6!
Bandcamp Spotify Pandora Amazon Soundcloud Deezer iTunes
After many years and many electronic music albums, Wøllo returns home in a sense.
Created on an assemblage of acoustic guitars, the album sees Wøllo
explore the instrument he first loved. With reflections of his two previous guitar-music albums - Guitar Nova (1998) and Blue Sky, Red Guitars (2004), the twelve moods are an intimate
collection showcasing a fresh perspective on Wøllo's artistic range and
versatility. Erik masterfully manipulates the acoustic guitar with elevated clouds of dulcet layered sound and resonant shimmering melody.

Steve Roach: "I heard Traces on vinyl back in the early 80s. It is still one of my top 10 albums. There is just an elegant, efficient, and emotional quality about it that just holds up like it was created today. A truly timeless piece of beauty."
