“A Brief History of Light” is a concept album by the skilled German musician Amir Baghiri. It was established with the help of a few co-composers, a vocalist on one track, and guest musician Max Corbacho, who lend a hand on the opening track.
The cd kicks off with the dynamic “Falling Star”, which featured quite a heavy dance beat, before we move into the great sequencing and soundscapes of the engaging “Cosmic Axis”.
More floating textures follow in the very nice tracks “Ghosts of the Dark Wood” and “Between Shadows and Fog”, which beautifully realm in sort-of Steve Roach territory.
The ten minute “Origins of Light” is another atmospheric outing with mesmerizing, deep sound worlds, fx’s, vocal samples and a slow sequence, in which more trance rhythms pop in halfway.
“Asphalt Wolf” is next, a four minute trance dance track with lots of fx’s, moving into “Princes of Light”, which has some vocals. The realm in this and the following tracks is overall chill-out.
It’s difficult to describe the music on this album, so you best check out some soundbites on the independent music site www.cdbaby.com
