Darren Harper
Awaken My Heart To a Belief in Hope
Analog Path

True to its title, “Awaken My Heart To A Belief In Hope” seems to look ever skyward, capturing floating guitar loops, effect-driven twinkles, and a large about of spacious air in the process.  Darren Harper’s new album comes from the ether like a hushed version of Simon Scott’s “Below Sea Level” or a mysterious Machinefabriek collaboration as his subtle musicianship is always creased with an equal amount hiss.  It’s lovingly crafted and both signal and noise are built on a meshing of analog equipment and digital software.  The best of Harper’s tracks combine both in a variety of ways: short guitar melodies prick the fuzzy sheets of static on “Pastorale Loop” and a web of digital glitches coat wistful piano notes on “Meander Between.” – Ryan Potts, Experimedia
