City of Dawn
City of Dawn is an ambient project of Damien Duque from McAllen, TX. He creates Immersive and atmospheric melodic 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 with occasional anxiety attacks, Depression, and Insomnia and through 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 our often cluttered mind, which is like the noise that surrounds us, disorganized and arbitrary, and help us align, whence discover meaning and what he calls 'Stillness". Quietness, Silence, and Tranquility.
His Mission is to spread awareness acceptance of autism is set on the following goal; that people under the Autism Spectrum can do unique things and that Autism doesn't define, each individual defines Autism and themselves. Because it's not a disability, but rather a different ability. His Music is a testimony that Autism doesn't stop him from reaching his success and also it brings a listening experience that is transcendent. He loves to bring people (Listeners) together to meditate and experience the sounds.
City of Dawn has released three albums on Heart Dance including Solace - a collaboration with Heart Dance Artist and flutist Sherry Finzer, all of which have received global airplay and are in rotation on the SXM Spa channel. His fourth release, Anoesis, is scheduled for a January 2022 release. Look for another collaboration with Sherry Finzer in the summer of 2022.
