I needed to make an album that showed that it's not all about making everything in the computer - a history lesson, but still utterly contemporary." That initial concept would lead to not one but two new Pretty Lights albums - 'A Color Map of the Sun' and its essential companion, 'Live Studio Sessions From A Color Map of the Sun.' The creation of these two symbiotic works would ultimately find Pretty Lights rewriting the rules for making electronic music - and indeed embarking on one of the most ambitious, labor-intensive musical projects in recent memory.
