Washington state based musician Joseph Snodgrass launched his summer music project in 02009 entitled The Lights Galaxia. His sounds are rich in electronic ambient music and occasionally shaded with electric guitar while also creating with minimal ambient sounds. Daniel Davis (musician Carl Sagan’s Ghost) officially became part of The Lights Galaxia after the release of the bands first EP. Several ideals move the creation of the music including keeping the “big here and the long now” in mind. That is, the overall feel of the catalog should represent a “trans-ambience” of sorts. The aether existing in time. Also key are the ideas of the betterment of humanity and realizing our place in the cosmos.
The Lights Galaxia released their first EP entitled Global in mid October of 02009 and a follow up release is planned for sometime in 02010. Snodgrass’ credits include the lyrics for the song Treasure by Amethystium (“Isabliss”) and his side project Ehrler Vogel. Of Daniel Davis’ music projects, he is most widely known as Carl Sagan’s Ghost, a popular minimalist ambient project. Both artists are members of MAAP (Multiple Artist Ambient Project). Their record label is Luxus-Arctica records International, which he has other music projects planned for. The Lights Galaxia works out of studio Cassiopeia.
