Lightdance is a visual music excursion exploring the infinite patterns of color, light, and form found in the natural world. Using a unique new filming technique, award-winning director David Fortney transports you on a magical flight over mystical landscapes, through enchanting forests and over oceans of wildflowers. In a spectacular departure, you soar through cloud formations into star fields and distant galaxies where comets of light dance to hypnotic rhythms.

One of the best music video's I've ever seen

"I've seen many visual music pieces on DVD and this is the best one I have ever seen. The visual images and effects flow so perfectly with the music. The visual images to the track Europa are absolutely stunning. David Fortney is a master at piecing these images to the music created by Santana, which is also very good. This is the first piece of art by Santana that I ever bought. I may buy a few Santana CD's after seeing this DVD. Anyone who appreciates sofisticated "dreamogenic" art work will really enjoy this piece of art. It has a "spiritual" magic to it that I can't describe. The images of nature puslating, gliding, and dancing to the sounds of Santana produces a very ludic dreamy state of mind. Some of the imagery is very "mushroomic" in nature. This is the sort of art work that is meant to be enjoyed in a clear tranquil meditative state of mind. If you're looking for a "rock video" you will be very dissapointed. This is more of a spiritual music video. The scenes with the universe spinning arround while a puslating, flying light dances to the guitar solos are breath taking. Obviously the intent of this DVD is to produce a musical experiance that gorify's god's wonderful creation from a grain of sand, to a flower, to the universe, its all very spiritial content. An absolutely wonderful DVD! I recommend this DVD for the mature, spiritually inclinded audience. Also, instead of popcorn and cola, I recomend having mushrooms and tea while watching this DVD."
Turn down the lights, turn up the sound, fill up the bowl.

"Visually AND aurally stunning.One of the few "nature - computer graphic - stoner -whatever" videos that has music with any SOUL to it. If you can't feel the soul in Santana music, check your pulse. A nice range of Santana styles, from his light-jazz sound to his guitar roaring blues, this a DVD that I have taped so I can listen to it in the car.Visually, it's a nice blend of nature shots done in camera styles I had never really seen before mixed with captivating digital manipulation. There is one video with 'water' as the main theme that escapes description. Once you've seen it, you'll know exactly what I mean.While the individual videos are all unique and different in style and tone, the DVD has a sense of perfect flow and transition about it that many of the other "Dude, this beats the crap out of a Lava Lamp" video compliations are lacking.I highly recommend this DVD, and if you happen to be one who partakes in the herbal arts, my recommendation rises tenfold."
Visuals that complement well the guitar of Santana

"If you are a true Santana fan you will definitely enjoy this DVD. The director does a great job of expressing the sounds using visuals. It contains some excellent nature shots mixed in with modern digital effects."
