Arise is the debut CD by Trance Lucid, and was released in 1996. Arise was voted #7 in the 'Top 10 CDs of 1996' by WBJB-FM of Lincroft, NJ. The CD is comprised of different types of songs - most with a guitar focus - but varied in instrumentation, approach, and tonality. Three songs feature saxophone, while the rhythmic elements range from none on some songs, to programmed percussion to live drums (or both) on others. Sound shadows and otherworldly drones appear throughout.
