Facetten

Following Nox, Planetarium introduces another series capturing one essence of its former mixes. The Lumen series is the exact opposite of Nox, chiming in with the aural equivalent of pure brightness, the sun, the daylight, constructing euphoric soundscapes. A lot of Planetarium’s origins in Serenades and Night Hawk Radio shone a light on the aspects of the cinematic ambient and modern classical that dares to explore dynamics, higher levels of treble and such. Starting with the pilot, Facetten, I will return to this sort of music more regularly now.
