After a brief new year break, we return with the first fiteen minutes of 2012, a debut label EP from Columbus, Ohio based artist Darwin Raymond.
Darwin has been playing guitar and making music for over 20 years. It was only after his wife passed away that he felt a genuine need to make music again and actively share his work. Throughout his life, music has been extremely important and on reflection he felt the need to start giving something back by sharing his sound experiments.

Rien/Rain is made from treated guitar and viola. It was recorded in the winter of 2010/2011, which was an incredibly lonely and forlorn time for the artist. Words cannot express the feelings felt at the time and so Darwin tried to take these feelings and translate them into sound.

Rien/Rain is understandably dark overall, and its two pieces are best enjoyed using headphones in a quiet room. The dark and brooding nature of these pieces can be unsettling, but the brief fifteen minute duration ensures that it does not become maudlin. Instead, the sounds come across as a release, which somehow make it feel uplifting...
