by Steve Brand



From 2008 release notes: LightTools is Steve Brand's first long form piece, taking over a year to complete. Constructed of keyboard textures, bells and voice, this 63 minute piece takes the listener on a journey through brightly lit zones of intoning celestial choirs, only to submerge into volcanic, rumbling clouds of mercurial darkness, returning again to skyscapes that are at once familiar, yet alien. The piece is inspired by our rapidly changing times, and is intended to bring Light, power, hope, connection to the listener.

Re-release download comes with .pdf of booklet and computer wallpaper.
