City of Dawn: As the Universe, So the Soul is Out Today on CD and Very Limited Box Set (Somewherecold Records, 2022)
City Of Dawn is a ambient project of Damien Duque from McAllen, TX. He creates Immersive, atmospheric, melodic, and dreamy soundscapes.
Aside from his mind-opening message about the effects of Ambient Music, his art also advocates for people within the Autism spectrum. For Damien, his music is a way of dealing occasional Anxiety attacks, Depression and Insomnia. Throughout it he shares his experience as a person with Asperger’s Syndrome (High-Functioning Autism).
Any City Of Dawn album from Damien Duque will invite you into a meditational estate that is self-exploring. Which journey, he teaches us, can lead toward healing. Healing from cluttered mind, which is like the noise that surround us, disorganized and arbitrary, and help us align, whence discover meaning and what he calls it “Stillness”.
Damien‘s Music is a testimony that Autism doesn’t stop him reaching his success and also bring a listening experience that is transcendent. He loves to gather people (listeners) to meditate and experience sounds.
City of Dawn: As the Universe, So the Soul comes out in a Deluxe Box with a standard version of the album in digipak, a metal print with poem and artwork, a unique Polaroid in each box, a City of Dawn sticker, a Somewherecold Records guitar pick, and a Record Label Sticker, a standard CD version in digipak, as well as digital formats.
