Sebastian Lightfoot’s “Ascension” is an atmospheric track that links together the 1970s work of Klaus Schulze and Kraftwerk with Vangelis and Wendy Carlos. There are nods to the new age styles promoted by Real Music and Putumayo Records. The song has a tremendous narrative quality to it; the deliberate arrangement incorporated during this single will have listeners hanging on every note. While Ascension is cohesive as all get out, Lightfoot keeps things interesting through a continual (and realized) desire to innovate. Ascension may only be 5-ish minutes, but the space that it will hold in listeners’ minds and hearts is much greater.
