"Light of the Dreams" is the fourth solo album by Maciek Szymczuk released on Zoharum. It consists of eight compositions in which ambient sounds are intertwined with the rhythmic, trance and oriental influences which could be heard in Szymczuk's other projects until now. So it is not only a consistent continuation of his previous solo releases, but also the development of the ideas we have heard on records by AABZU or Another One.
The leitmotif are dreams, but the album is not submerged in the sleepy and lazy atmospheres. It's easier to find the psychedelic and surreal visions, crazy swings of moods and musical action. In his latest songs you hear references to the best afrobeat, dub, psychedelia straight from the 1960s and 1970s. A trained ear can hear traces of the cult FM synthesis-a synth sounds made famous in the 1980s. Like his previous album, "Music for Cassandra," this one is (almost) exclusively instrumental, lasting a bit over 40 minutes.
