    It's unclear if Elements of Light represents an evolutionary mark for the producer or a one-off exercise inspired by a summer's day in Oslo, but as an effort at minimalism, it's a modest success at best.

    The fluid blend of tracks makes it more of a single piece than a series of highlights and also-rans. [Feb 2013, p.108]

    Depending on the vantage point, it's either a logical progression or a creative dead end.

    The instrument [carillon] affords Weber a chance to expand his hibernal sound in various interesting ways, but ultimately this feels more like a scholarly exercise than a fully realised album.

    The pairing, and subsequent output, of Weber and the Bell Laboratory is expected and mundane.

    Elements Of Light is missing momentum and velocity--two things needed to sustain an all-instrumental symphony. Unfortunately, this means the album ends up as pleasant background noise-and not much more.
