Desolation Wilderness

Swooning guitars, found sounds, synthesizer trills, forward percussion and dream vocals: Desolation Wilderness is the primary musical project of Nicolaas Zwart. Started in 2005, it is his musical realization of themes inspired by American literature, film, and music: transcendentalism, hope, longing, movement. If you had to map it, it would be somewhere between A Coney Island of the Mind by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and Rabbit, Run by John Updike.
