ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Note: Some listeners have asked about the "CD-RP" designation for the Lux Primordia CD. Please be assured that it is a normal, full-quality CD in CD Audio format and is professionally made in a high-volume factory. Thank you!

Inspired by an eclectic mix of vintage and modern influences, from early analog soundscapes and drones to subtly-woven harmonies, Lux Primordia works to break new ground while retaining the familiar textures and warmth of traditional electronic space music. This new release by Telomere again features the mighty Serge STS Modular synthesizer as well as a stable of other vintage analog synths and effects.

If you like great electronic Spacemusic.....
......This is some of the best. Maybe the best even. This music evokes a gravity that pulls at your very soul. There are few ambient works have such strength and depth as the works of Telomere. This is coming from am Ambient junkie who listens to all the greats and even more unknowns. Buy the CD.

A beautiful odyssey of epic proportions!
Telomere's fourth offering "Lux Primordia" plumbs the depths of intergalactic eternity with a magnificent, spacious majesty. Each succeeding track fills the listener with more wonderment, and a deeper sense of cosmic grandeur. You cascade along on undulating synth-pads, all the while conceiving universal rapture, being warmly welcomed along on your farthest quest into eternal night. The track "Spriral Arms" is a true ambient masterpiece, as breath-taking as any 'Liquid Mind' track laid-down by Chuck Wild. Teleomere has created a 'magnus opus' on this auspicious outing. Telomere is one of the masters of 'space and time', and ranks with likes of: Asmodelle, Alpha Wave Movement, Jonn Serrie, Max Corbacho, John Lyell, and Meg Bowles to list but a few of those artists, who traverse this genre. A beautiful odyssey of epic proportions! Highly Recommended.

Marching shoulder-to-shoulder with the giants of this genre!!!
In California based Christopher MacDonald known as Telomere returns after more than 5 years of silence with brand new work, his 4th full length album entitled "Lux Primordia". Released during January 2013 through his own Evenfall label. This time available in CDr format, but again heavily loaded with some of the most magnificent deep space soundscapes ever created on Serge Modular and Roland Jupiter 8 synths.

This guy didn't lose anything of his mastery, it's strongly evident during the opening piece, clocking to nearly 9 and half minute mark. "Sol Zero" takes us to sublimely graceful zones, tranquilly floating and warmly expanding into utterly infinite domains. Gently enveloping monumental soundwalls are masterfully amalgamated with harmoniously glimmering spirals. What a journey, welcome to Telomere's deep sonic heaven!!! "Flightpath" unfolds with oscillating embellishments, guarded by deeper drones. Meandering and quietly outbursting helixes invade and swirl around your ears. All surrounded by endlessly sublime grandness!!! Space hums announce "Spiral Arms", but soon heartwarming drifts steal the show, enhanced by wide-screen, dramatic waves and melodies with strongly touching feel. Elegant and gracious!!! The next composition, "Visions", is the longest one on this odyssey with 10 and half minutes. Expansive dronescapes are richly colored by hauntingly immersing cascades and transitions. The myriads of dissonant sparkles and twists emerge, all the time in refined harmony with spatial emptiness. Again wealthily packed with darker and lighter motifs. "Celestial Sky", as displayed by its title, unveils with immense drones, attentively enriched by assorted euphoric glimpses, giving to this piece its ultimate magnificence. Certainly another highlight, fully absorbing and rewarding, and showcasing tremendous potential of this Californian space drifting maestro!!! "Startides" dive into deeper drone realms, spaciously weaving and transferring from tighter spheres into lighter passageways, before quietly fading away into peaceful silence. "Pillars And Jets" provide the closing episode, with slightly more monotonous feel, yet gently flavored with warmly inviting fragments and gracefully drifting through gorgeous space sceneries. Beautifully mesmerizing finale!!!

Telomere did it again, "Lux Primordia" is another sonic pearl revealing all grace, marvel and exhilaration of deep space realms!!! And yes, Telomere is still one of the best kept secrets. Undeservingly, because Christopher MacDonald is marching shoulder-to-shoulder with the giants of this genre!!! "Lux Primordia" is a must have, just like each of his previous albums!!!

A Masterpiece
I have been a long time listener to this artist, having all 3 of his prior releases. So, being quite familar with his body of work, (the last of them being 2007's 'The Stellar Sea) it was with much anticipation when I learned this album was available.Where his prior albums seemed to be the guide and vehicle to the outer reaches of space and galaxies beyond, "Lux Primordia' drops you off right in the middle of it, surrounds you with it and simply leaves you gaze at your auraal surroundings with awe and amazement. Layers upon layers of organic sonic beauty reveal themselves with multiple listenings. Indeed, the album never seems to sound the same with each sucessive playing. I find it both at once a joy to listen to with intense scrutiny and also as as means to entering a dream state by hitting the repeat button on my CD player and letting the music play throughout the night while sleeping. Beautiful, and timeless, it is a worthy addition to ANY space music fan's collection. 'Lux Primordia' will take your imagination to realms you that you will never want to leave. RUN don't walk to get this one. Well done Chris MacDonald, this one was totally worth the wait.
