Valek Irwin The great thing about this album is that it's spiritual without being religious. Rather than the appeals to "God" that one might expect of the Gregorian-esque vocals happening here, the vocals are all "ohhh's" and "ahhh's," which makes this accessible to me even as a Pagan. I could even see using this as background music for some of my rituals. It's all the beauty of cathedrals without the religiosity that makes me want to avoid them. Favorite track: Pillar Ascension.

Richard Gürtler Listening to opener, "Light-Matrix Portal", is like standing in the choir of this cathedral and exploring all the architectural monumentality, gracefulness and magnificence. The music is very minimal in its structure, sounding really quiet and slow-motion floating, but its effect is enormous, just like the cathedral, it's monumental, graceful and magnificent. "Light-Matrix Portal" is undoubtedly one of the most tranquil, immense and impact compositions I have ever heard in ambient music!!!

Brian Bourassa While I can't review most of Max Corbacho's music since I already own it, I can say I recommend just about all of it.

This release is one of the few I do not own...until now.

It is Majestic, atmospheric, spacial, and downright fantastic work!

Light and harmony could set this purely atmospheric new work by Max Corbacho. Not the blinding light from outside but light filtered through high windows of colored glass, broken and transformed into multi-colored gems, transferring that which is material to That which is immaterial. Like a weightless dream, the main theme is exposed in Light-Matrix Portal, where a gentle swirl of chords leads us, as in a Gothic doorway, in a magnificent space. The main theme remains on all the pieces in a subtle way, spreading mystical, delicate scents through labyrinthine passages ascending and spiraling to the vaults. Max presents the album’s flow through different sonic zones sequentially, as if we proceeded on walking meditation in a 13th century cathedral.

"Seventy four minutes of sublime melody-free magnificence"
Morpheus Music Reviews

"If Goethe called architecture frozen music, it seems that Max Corbacho succeeded in his latest recording to release music from stone without losing the sacred geometries. ARS LUCIS delivers a perfect flow of space, sound and silence manifested in seven tracks of pure meditative harmonies. Every piece of music shine with aural beauty from a quiet inner centre opening to the infinite. Delicate resonances are melting into an uncognoscible light, calling the senses to perceive beyond any form, infusing the mind with spaciousness that permeats and pervades an entire world of subtle experiences. Listening effortlessly, finally you will feel your entire being as a unique stained glass window crossed by abundant luminous waves projecting a radiant display of color on distant ethereal planes. ARS LUCIS proves to be an effective tool for expanding consciousness and a treasure for fans of deep ambient music."
Marius-Christian Burcea, producer/host "Journeys to the Infinite"

"This is, as the cover art suggests, a soundtrack for watching light filter through stained glass in a sacred space."
Hypnagogue Reviews

"These lucid creations divulge majestic splendor with each tenuous passage."
Matt Howarth, Sonic Curiosity
