Ars Lucis

A true dreamscape
by Chris Detjen

Max Corbacho continues his development as one of the world's top ambient composers. With the virtual flood of darker drone work being released today, and when it seems harder and harder to find truly atmospheric ambient, this release is a breath of fresh air. Heavengly ambient swells, gentle wisps of sonic changes. It is similar to "Breathstream" and "Talisman," two earlier works from Max. The music does have range and doesn't stay completely in the realm of touching atmospheres (as with the first song)--the album eventually ventures into darker and quieter relams, but overall this retains a beauty that is becoming, unfortunately, more difficult to find in today's ambient music.
