Light is a Progressive Rock band based out of Ohio and is comprised of Shadowbox Live musicians from both Columbus, OH and Los Angeles, CA. Light was founded in 2010 when Shadowbox Live and BalletMet collaborated on a full-length ballet, written in a contemporary style using modern rock instruments, entitled 7 Deadly Sins. As soon as the planning began, Light was born.
Following the success of 7 Deadly Sins, Light created and performed a second piece entitled The Masque that was based on 8 works by Edgar Allan Poe and originally performed as a symphony with narrative. The album was recorded on a Friday. The Masque was picked up by Verb Ballets and premiered as a full-length rock ballet November 1st, 2013 in Cleveland, OH.
The Masque will be performing ONE NIGHT ONLY at The Palace Theater in Columbus, OH on May 15th, 2014!!!
Also coming in May, Light will be premiering its latest work, Gallery of Echoes : a 21-song cycle, multi-media performance where the artwork takes center stage. Original rock ‘n’ roll, evocative video, and contemporary dance compliment the visceral artwork selected from the museum’s permanent collection for this one-of-a-kind production.
