Band Members & Bio
Light is a Progressive Rock band based out of Ohio and is comprised of Shadowbox Live musicians from both Columbus, OH and Los Angeles, CA. The band was founded in 2010 when Shadowbox Live and BalletMet collaborated on a new work entitled 7 Deadly Sins. The goal of the project was for Shadowbox Live to create and perform the music of a full-length ballet, written in a contemporary style using modern rock instruments. As soon as the planning began Light was born.
Following the success of 7 Deadly Sins, Light spent 12 days in 2012 creating and performing a second piece entitled The Masque that was based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe and performed as a symphony with narrative. The album was recorded on a Friday. The Masque premiered as a completed work with Verb Ballets on November 1st, 2013 in Cleveland, OH to a sold out house and paved the way for the Columbus premiere presented by CAPA at The Palace Theatre on May 15th, 2014.
During January of 2013, Light began writing its third musical piece, Gallery of Echoes a collaboration with the Columbus Museum of Art to write and perform 21 songs about 21 different works from the museum’s permanent collection. Gallery of Echoes premiered with its massive 27’ x 9’ screen to great success at the end of April 2014 and will be returning for a Fall 2014 run.
While Light continues to stoke the flames of these projects with the upcoming album release, documentary and encore performances, they have already begun writing a new full-length performance work tentatively scheduled to premiere in Fall 2015 called Tenshu Monogatari (wt).
