The fourteenth release in the King Crimson 40th Anniversary series.


The ReconstruKction of Light CD features a ‘re-imagined‘ edition of The ConstruKction of Light, with all new drums by Pat Mastelotto and a remix by Don Gunn (who was responsible for Meltdown: Live in Mexico). The DVD-A features the new mixes in hi-res stereo audio and the album in lossless 5.1 Surround Sound (mixed by David Singleton). All new mixes were approved by the set’s Executive Producer Robert Fripp. The original album mix is included in hi-res stereo and as a bonus feature, the complete ProjeKct X album Heaven & Earth is included. As with the other 40th Anniversary releases, the set is presented in a double digipak format in a slipcase and contains sleeve notes by King Crimson biographer Sid Smith (along with rare photos and archive material) When the Double Trio line of Fripp, Belew, Levin, Mastelotto, Bruford, and Gunn wanted to develop new material at the end of the THRAK-era in 1997, they broke down into smaller groups, a process which Fripp dubbed fraKctalisation. This resulted in a series of different groupings which were called The ProjeKcts (and a series of releases now gathered on the Heaven & Earth boxed set). When the individual players regrouped as King Crimson, the band was now a double duo consisting of Belew, Fripp, Gunn, and Mastelotto with Tony Levin and Bill Bruford leaving to fulfil other recording and touring commitments.? The next period of KC activity resulted in the album The ConstruKction of Light (from 2000). Perhaps appropriately, for an album with the theme of building in its title, ConstruKction has undergone the most radical change of all KC albums thus far - effectively being rebuilt from the ground up. The loss of the original recordings of the electronic drums allowed Pat Mastelotto to completely re-record the material on his current acoustic/electric kit making for a virtually completely new album of familiar material.


The album is presented here in new stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound editions, along with the original mix and, as a bonus inclusion, the complete ProjeKct X Heaven & Earth album, which was issued as a companion volume to the original album.
