5 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

As he heard bells chiming from Oslo's city hall, Pantha du Prince became so inspired by the peculiar way the tones layered and collided that he conceived a patchwork of compositions exploring bell instruments as the centerpiece. The purity of the bell almost acts as a distillery on Elements of Light, which is essentially a concept album. Pantha du Prince foregoes his headier electronic textures and focuses on the careful arranging of melody and atmosphere, building intensity in half-steps. "Spectral Split" runs the gamut from meditative tone poem to invigorating and pulsing dance material, taking nearly 18 minutes to complete its journey. Elements of Light is a more cerebral and contemplative turn for Pantha du Prince, but the result is hypnotizing: an inspired release exploring new creative space in his minimal dancefloor style.
