For an album coming off the Nordic electronica powerhouse Smalltown Supersound, Arp's IN LIGHT starts off on a simple enough note: the delicate ambient tones of "St. Tropez." "The Rising Sun" has a slow drone with a tickling piano line -- like watching a slow sunrise -- while "Fireflies On The Water" has a tipsiness to it, as if all the fireflies were drunk. A hint of electro swagger creeps into "Premonition Of The Sculptor Steiner," giving the track a certain 70s space-music quality, while the long "Odyssey (For Bas Jan Ader)" is an extended meditation, refracting some simple chords for the length of the track. The cello that punctuates "Potentialities II" adds a classical elegance as well. Quite a dreamy piece of work.
