NOCTURNES – review by textura.org

  The panoramic landscape photographs adorning Max Corbacho’s Nocturnes serve a purpose that goes beyond mere decoration. In this case, the images, captured by the artist himself, are intended to reflect the emotions he felt and the impressions gathered during many recent sessions of night photography; in his own words, «The most vivid memory of … Read more

NOCTURNES – review by Bert Strolenberg – Sonicimmersion

  «Nocturnes» (the debut release on Max’s own label Silentsun, created exclusively for his solo albums from now on) is the first episode of a trilogy with night landscapes as a theme. The long hours lived on many night-time excursions and capturing the places visited in great photos (see the albums nice cover art), inspired … Read more

NOCTURNES – review by Darren Bergstein

  Max Corbacho’s long been something of Spain’s answer to Steve Roach, and this, his latest, doesn’t mitigate that comparison nor does it disappoint. «Nocturnes» is every bit the stellar cousin to many of Roach’s own escapades, particularly «Structures from Silence», which this expertly mirrors in every capacity, nowhere more so than on the epic, … Read more

NOCTURNES – review by MORPHEUS MUSIC

  May 2017Smooth, drifting ambient electronica.Nocturnes sees Spanish ambient master Max Corbacho delivering some of his most silken, airy ambient fabric to date along with some uneasy dark shrouds that lift and curl in the unseen slow-motion currents of the night. The enormous opener wafts by in delicate filaments of sound, overlaid one upon another, … Read more

ARS LUCIS – review by Cosmiagramma

  The wonderful thing about ambient music is that it’s a pure distillation of an aesthetic (not A E S T H E T I C, at least not just that). Instead of making music that reminds you of glimmering airports or lazy Thursday afternoons or an earthy old chapel, ambient music sounds like those … Read more

ARS LUCIS – review by Musicbymood

  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 … Read more

ARS LUCIS – review by Endoflogic

«Simply Gorgeous» by Endoflogic 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 … Read more

ARS LUCIS – review by Chris Detjen

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 … Read more

ARS LUCIS – review by mpjd

As stated on Max’s official website, «frozen architecture music» suits this album perfectly. At first, I thought the album sounded very one-note. After many listens, this is certainly not the case. The listener has to focus in on all of the tiny elements that Max uses in his musical palette in order to gain a … Read more
