About Silent Currents 3
Silent Currents 3 is a digital-only album based on a 2010 live performance at the famous Star’s End radio show in Philadelphia. This show was Erik’s third Star’s End performance; the previous two were released on the double CD Silent Currents/Live at Star’s End (2011). Where this release differs is that all the live material serves as a basis for a new sonic voyage. The music is re-arranged with several elements added this year in Erik’s studio in Norway. Within this release, Erik explores innovative electronic and ambient landscapes with floating currents and slow-motion structures.
The sound is a mix of both long sustaining zones and sequenced, rhythmical passages. The melodic elements are often distant and blended with the contrasting sections of eerie, blurred cluster-chords and dark floating background drones. There are several distinct rhythmical pieces, though the primary focus remains the deep drones. The music drifts; sections morph organically into each other, forming an atmospheric instrumental suite in thirteen continuous parts.
This ethereal sonic experience will take the listener on a journey of music with a highly cinematic and imaginative quality.
