Traces is a thought-provoking and reflective album, with an electro-organic soundscape formed largely from two classic 80s and 90s synths, the Korg M1 and Korg Wavestation.
The mood of Traces evolves from day to night and dark to light throughout the twelve textured and dreamlike pieces. There's a sense of transition in the music, with three ambient interludes intersecting the electronic groove of the album, which explores the themes of dreams, memories and the subconscious, in a dark and cinematic fashion.
One of The Light Dreams' most popular releases on Bandcamp, Traces was released as digital download and a specially packaged limited edition CD-R. The initial CD sales of Traces were shipped with a second CD, Traces - Abandoned, a collection of demos, outtakes and alternative versions from the album sessions, which was later released via Bandcamp as a 'Name Your Price' release.
Traces was recorded throughout 2013 and released in March 2014.
