There’s something incredibly ethereal about this album. Max Corbacho is brilliant at evoking reverence, space and a feeling of… well… the cosmos. Much of his work seems, bright, icy & celestial.
Ars Lucis has a vast sense of space within it. Inspired by cathedrals and the way light pours in through coloured windows, Corbacho spaces the high bell-like textures and low rumbling music far apart from one another. I find my mind benefits greatly from this construction as there is so much space within the track, and one does not feel cluttered by the music.
Corbacho’s Ars Lucis is about as non-invasive and atmospheric as music gets. There’s deliberately nothing to hold on to and so the mind is held & the body can breath without distraction. It is atmospheric and reverent music at its best.
