LightDreams was a studio band created in 1981 during the time of the recording and limited edition, vinyl release of Paul Marcano's album Islands in Space. The album featured all original songs along with contributions by composers Andre Martin and Cory Rhyon as well as player contributions by John Walker on lead, Tim Moore on Sax and Art Lowe on bass. More info on Islands in Space can be found here

The music of LightDreams has been characterized as 'alternative psychedelic, electronic folk music' with a delicate blend of acoustic, symphonic and electronica elements. Other albums by the studio band appear on Paul Marcano's 1982 production of 10001 Dreams, a double album of his original songs plus an extraordinaryly surreal second album of carefully blended conceptual pieces by LightDreams.

After about 1983 with the release of Airbrushing Galaxies produced by Paul Marcano and Andre Martin, LightDreams members developed careers of their own, occasionaly popping up as a duo. Paul and Andre have continued over the years to collaborate on a number of pieces of music that have often become part of album projects, not the least of which is an album they recorded in 1993 called First Time Back. This album is part of a string of albums produced by Paul Marcano over the years, starting in 1972, his catalogue of work is extensive and can be found here with some albums available for digital download.
