Elements of Light
Released: Jan 2013
Label: Rough Trade
Germany's Pantha du Prince has always loved his bell tones, but he really indulges his yen for hammered bronze on Elements of Light, an album based primarily on the carillon, a ringing behemoth of an instrument whose roots go back to the Middle Ages. Layered with additional chimes and mallet percussion, this five-track suite combines the meditative resonance of a European church with the bubbling pulse and spine-tingling sonics of avant-garde techno.
