Remnants From A Lost Time is one of the most diverse albums in The Light Dreams' discography. It is a purely ambient release – there are no drums or percussion – and focusses on ambient textures and atmospheres. It is also based around improvisations.
The underlying concept of the album is an exploration of the passing of time, both through memories and the environment around us.
Also a visual artist, one Alex Storer's starting points for this project was the neurological trait of synaesthesia. Storer had been experimenting with a series of improvised pieces of music, designed to be played while out in the natural world. However as a synaesthete, the artist saw the music as 'green' and soon found himself working in parallel on a series of green abstract paintings, which would eventually become the album cover art.
Remnants From A Lost Time was released via Bandcamp in August 2016.
