The ConstruKction of Light is the twelfth studio album by the band King Crimson, released in 2000. It has the distinction of being the first studio album to be released by King Crimson without Bill Bruford on drums since prior to the release of Larks' Tongues in Aspic (1973). It also is notable for the absence of Tony Levin on bass and Chapman Stick who had joined the band back in 1981. The double trio that marked the 1990s releases was now reduced to a quartet: Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Trey Gunn and Pat Mastelotto, leaving Fripp to not only be the last remaining member from any lineup prior to 1981 but the only Englishmen left as well.
