Lights & Motion is a Swedish cinematic project led by multi-instrumentalist producer/composer Christoffer Franzén. It was created in the winter of 2011, as a way of dealing with his insomnia; Instead of sleeping he wrote music at night by himself in a studio in Gothenburg. The project was initially supposed to reflect the sense of dreamlike state in which a lot of the first album was written in. Since then the he has gone on to release five full-length albums, and several EP´s.
