Light Conductor - Sequence Two [Constellation Records Promo]

Put out on the circuit via Constellation Records on October 29th, 2k21 is "Sequence Two", the aptly named sophomore album outing carved out and conceived by Jace Lasek and Stephen Ramsey under their conjunctional artistic guise that is Light Conductor. Rolled out over a total of four tracks and roughly 45 minutes total playtime the two collaborating artists further flesh out their shared sonic vision which is as retrofuturistic as it is most modernist in structure and approach, combining large scale vintage synth arrangements and, despite the absence of what would be a proper dancefloor functional beat foundation, what was once called IDM / Intelligent Dance Music back in the early 90s, weighing in ever changing and meandering melodies as well as spaced out guitars and longing, anthemic vocals which only appear in the opening cut "Splitting Light" whereas the subsequent track "The Rooms Are Turning Inside Out" floats and hovers beyond space and time in a classic, most beautiful Ambient fashion. Furthermore "Pyramids In Slow Rotation" amalgamates tender, carefully layered pads and a reverberating two tone motif atop swampy, organic low end pulses of ever growing intensity, working its way all the way up to an almost kitsch-dripping Synth climax before the concluding piece "Life Under A Double Sun" harks back to a realm of (Neo)Cosmic x ProtoAmbient spheres perfectly resonating with the sonic worlds explored by the likes of Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream when electronic music was still in its infancy of sorts for a closing. Defo a worthwhile recommendation for all Ambient and ChillOut headz out there. Get.
