The Distant, Everyday is the first full-length album by Low Lumens, the recording alias of visual artist and musician Danny Bracken. The sound of ringing church bells mix with swelling synthesizers in the expansive opening track, Santa Clara. In many ways, the meditative song sets the tone for the ten track album, a record that is simultaneously complex and spacious. There is an undeniable sense of upbeat repetition, something reminiscent of dance or electronic music. Yet, with bits of voice and acoustic instruments, the compositions retain a sense of humanness. Throughout, a subtle tension weaves: there’s a crackle in the woodwinds, slight feedback in a synthesizer, and a confused auto-tuned brass ensemble lying just below the polished surface. The song was crafted while Dannye was artist-in-residence at the 15th century Spanish convent named Santa Clara and took influence from the spaces and sounds of the cavernous stone building. The record progressed sporadically over the following three years. There were exhibitions, compositions for films and commercials, and everyday life that filled the gaps. To complete the wandering collection of songs, he found moments at his home studio in Pittsburgh, as well as at other artist residencies and while traveling in Washington, The Netherlands, and Ireland, their locations inspiring many of the songs titles. Danny Brackens music has appeared in commercials, award-winning documentaries (Blood Brother, Woman on Fire), and television sitcoms (Downward Dog) and hereon Low Lumens he explores electro pop music.
