Long time friends Jace Lasek and Stephen Ramsay formed Light Conductor out
of a mutual desire to create expansive drone, ambient, and electronic music.
After fortuitously acquiring a trove of rare analog electronic gear and
meticulously restoring it from various states of disrepair back into
pristine working condition, the duo began to explore the creative
territories that were opened by their new musical tools. Using their mutual
admiration for the celestial wig outs of Spiritualized, the quiet majesty of
Eno's ambient albums, and the experimental landscapes of William Basinski as
a template, Lasek and Ramsay ultimately carved out a sound of their own,
resulting in their debut album Sequence One.
