Waterscapes shimmer beneath light refracted at the surface, burrowing into the soft, choreographed movements of submerged green plant life. Austyn Wohlers creates a humming collage on “Field of Red Craters” where guitar melodies float effortlessly and tension comes in resonant waves. Solid-state drones rise from the spaces left behind when the light changes, continuing the forward progression. The simple, straightforward beauty of flowing water comes through in Wohlers’ tonal shifts and expansive arrangement, signifying the start of a new path of exploration.
“Field of Red Craters” is on Austyn Wohlers’ new album, Silvopasture. Out on cassette via Cloud Recordings. Order HERE and stream below.
