There are defining moments that carry with them an extreme joy or an immense pain, but past that instant what probably remains more vivid is the collection of moments that led to that instant and what followed subsequently. And that process is filled with little details.
In Night, Darwin Raymond explores this path creating a homage to one of his own personal defining moments and painting an oppressive archetypal night of his own, but what one cannot stop feeling is the underlying existence of light still below, undermining the loss and pushing into the day.
Darwin Raymond crafted an album that sounds like classical ambient, with beautiful textures and an ever present clean guitar. - Leonardo Rosado
Darwin Raymond is a musician currently residing in Columbus, Ohio. Primarily guitar based, his recent work has been about the overlap and interplay of the present with memory. While Darwin has been making music for over twenty years, he has only recently begun actively recording and releasing his compositions.
Night was begun two years after his wife passed away and is specifically a reflection of the events regarding her illness, passing and the loss and emotions that have followed. As such, each piece was made by recording a track and immediately overdubbing it with one or more tracks in an attempt to maintain the feeling of that specific time.
This album is dedicated to his wife, Jaime Raymond.
Feedback Loop Label; Available music in the web is a marvelous world to uncover, and ever since I came across the concept of Netlabels I was immediately stunned by the amount of music to discover. But shortly after I was overwhelmed by the fast paced releases and hard to find pearls (at least the ones that lasted more than 2 or 3 careful auditions). There are netlabels and record labels for all genres and you can find out there everything, but my intentions regarding the foundation of a label are based on two critical issues: listeners pleasure and tribute to the artist.
I want to release music that lasts one year, ten years, a lifetime, and that gives its listeners always a good reason to get back to it and also to promote as much as possible the artists that produce that music. I'm interested in the sensations that music transmits, its richness and its versatility.
