Have you been in the dark...in a cave?

Lightwave will take you there. Though the soundstage of Cantus Umbrarum of thrilling, look for Mundus Subterraneus...it is just plain unnerving. Pick up a few tid bits to round out your space is deep collection, perhaps "A Mineral Light..." or "To the Deep," you will be well on your way.

They Say All Music Guide

Lightwave is a French ensemble that occasionally features Paul Haslinger, a former Tangerine Dream member. He does not appear on Cantus Umbrarum. Christian Wittman and Christoph Harbonnier are Lightwave. Jacques Deregnaucourt and Renaud Pion are guest musicians. Marie-Christine Letort, Jean-Luc Revol, John Greaves, Eric Theobaid, and Wittman provide voices and vocals. They created this music for a massive sound installation in the Coranche Caves in the Vercos Mountains in France. The voices recited — in French — the works of William Shelley, Baudelaire, Mallarme, Jules Verne, Victor Hugo, and Nerval. Visitors traversed the galleries of the caves as the musical shifts flowed along with them. The soundscapes are truly subterranean. The electronics and acoustics evolve slowly as the music builds and collapses endlessly. The spoken recitations are processed as an integral piece of the sound design and add much to the presentation. This classic CD will appeal to fans of Brannan Lane, Jonn Serrie, Kevin Keller, James Johnson, and Zero Ohms. It is essential for all e-music fans. – Jim Brenholts
