Music of great immensity with equal dashes of mystery, and introspection

Erik Wollo returns with an EP, for the summer of 2015; entitled "Echotides" and it includes, seven movements of the same name, based on his signature, electronic MIDI guitar-synths. I like the feel of this EP, and some of it reminds me a little of the legendary German conglomerate, 'Tangerine Dream'. Especially, the track labeled "Echotides 3". Wollo's music always imparts a sense of one's aloneness, in the great immensity of it all, with equal dashes of mystery, and some stark introspection thrown-in for good measure. His use of sound as a percussive-element always sharpens the mix, and adds a little extra to the listener's experience. In many ways, Erik Wollo is the deep ambient-equivalent, to jazz's Pat Metheny; whose noted for his avant-garde style, of synclavier-guitar brilliance. Wollo has an extensive back-catalog, and yes, it's worth exploring. Those who like Pat Thomi's "Pyramids" CD, or Jeff Pearce's offerings, should feel right-at-home.
