about

The latest album of Colin Rayment could be tagged as cinematic electronic music - with a focus on electronic analogue synths and many melodic effects.

A small rationale and the inspiration behind Abstract Dimensions...
Whatever we do or whatever we create, there is always another angle or perspective with which to view something. Be it a still image, moving image, or indeed sound.
How would slowing down and modifying some moving footage in some way affect a musical composition, when the piece had been originally made specifically for it?
If you were to create an abstract image from a recognisable picture, or structure and compose music specifically for that abstract image, the music would most probably have a very different sound and feel.
This is where my experimental musical journey began. Skyward Euphoria (track 1), takes its name from some footage created on a journey through northern France. The majority of footage having been taken simply from inside a moving car. This became the main inspiration for the track. The footage was slowed down, as the viewer witnesses the ever changing sky and slowly passing bridges along a French Autoroute.
Abstract Dimensions is a personal 'journey', deriving its musical inspiration from some abstract thinking, while reflecting some of the positive feelings in life, along with some of the more melancholy.

"Special attention to this great release Rayment. Colin - Abstract Dimensions. It has been spinning in my CD player many times the last weeks and I think it a great album that many who love Berlin School will enjoy!" (Ron Boots, Groove Records, Dreamscape Radio)

released September 5, 2015

Within the confines of his studio in North London Colin Rayment has been creating his own particular brand of electronic music since 2007.
Born in the UK, Colin´s enthusiasm for electronic music started from an early age. Subjected to electronic music by his two elder brothers, he soon realised his passion when he bought his first monophonic analogue synth in the early 80´s.
Some years had to pass with other task until Colin released his first album in 2002 with the help of Dave Law (MusicZeit). With this and along with radio play, a wider audience got aware of Colin in the United States, Australia, Japan and Europe.
