Ultimae proudly presents Gneiss, a first solo EP on the label for Danish composer Tore Kofod Hyldahl aka Erot after his participation on Martin Nonstatic‘s Granite Remixes and releases on labels such as Iboga Records, LSD-Liquid Sound Design and Fallen Metropolis.
The emotive and abstract musical tale invites the listener to escape perception, understanding and apprehend the vast of music, of nature, time and space. Grounded yet floating freely, the chiselled rhythms and evanescent pads create the cradle of contrasts in which one can let himself be lulled and carried away on a deep and delicate journey.
Erot welcomes aboard space ambient and downtempo initiates Henrik Laugesen and Vincent Villuis, respectively known as Lauge and AES Dana to fuel the experience with extra cinematic atmospheres and beats.
Compared to the vinyl version, the CD includes extra track Halocline (Morild part 2).
