From the artists’ website:
«Like a weightless dream, the main theme is exposed in Light-Matrix Portal, where a gentle swirl of chords leads us, as a Gothic doorway, into a magnificent space. The main theme remains on all the pieces in a subtle way, spreading mystical, delicate scents through labyrinthine passages ascending and spiraling to the vaults. Max presents the album’s flow through different sonic zones sequentially, as if we proceed on a walking meditation through a 13th century cathedral.»
To consider «Ars Lucis» as merely a sequence of songs is to do it a great injustice. This is one of those rare albums where the whole is so much more than the sum of its parts. Each song is a chapter in an 80-minute story that transports the listener through the spiritual awakening that often accompanies the great holy places of the world. Max’s fine touch and deep affinity for progression and variation are on display at the highest level. If you haven’t yet heard Max’s music, this is the place to start.
