The music in general is simple, but vividly expansive. If you close your eyes, you can easily imagine yourself in a vastly distant and everlasting snow desert – and maybe this image is fueled by the cover artwork of the album, since the sound closely associates itself with this landscape imagery. The sound gradually evolves from a solitary, dense and profound desolation, whose notes contemplates directly the horizons of the soul, in the lost vicinities of an existence that effectively displays the voracity and the fragility of the human nature, in a gracious and sensible sound that delves into the harmonies of its own poetic sensibilities.
Vinden Der Blæser definitely became my favorite song. With a lucid, but soft intensity – primordially satisfied with the expansive beauty of its harmonious and vague, but elegant dissolutions – the graceful melodies expand slowly towards a palace of sonorous epiphanies, where a uniquely sensorial disposition of existence gives you the benefit of dreaming with the whole universe for a while. The sound is intensely poetic and fragile at the same time; the lucid consciousness of your soul expands into a dehydrated universe of imponderable calmness, where everything that you hear splendidly fulfills gracious horizons of glory, in an ambivalent placidity whose harmonies revolves around a decent exposure of originally volatile serenities.
With an intelligent and abundant degree of creativity, Wilderness reveals itself a moderately glorious album. With an artistic grandiosity that effectively engraves the sound in a consistent parable of musical abilities, Erot & Lauge successfully consecrated a mosaic of creative virtues, that situates both artists in a graceful level of audacious authenticity, while at the same time maintaining a sensible simplicity, that literally embraces them as two innovative and spectacular underground forces of ambient music.
