Stefano Sciascia, a frequent recitalist at ISB conventions, is on the double bass faculty of the Conservatorio di Musica "G. Tartini" in Trieste, Italy. Lux Ex Tenebris is the tenth CD of his discography and features his innovative artistry as a double bassist and composer of electronic music. In addition to the performance of the double bass parts, the music on the CD was conceptualized and composed by Sciascia. The Latin phrase lux ex tenebris translates to "light out of darkness." The Gothic inspired cover of Lux Ex Tenebris invokes a dark spiritual context, but the overall effect of the music on the CD evokes a more general imagery of solemn ceremony and invites meditative interaction.
