why we love this

A lovingly tender return to a natal state before our conceptions of music are shaped. Submerged in an amniotic fluid, these tunes nourish the nascent mind. How nice is it to be reintroduced to the world again?

about the record

Dylan Henner returns to Dauw with 'performs Raymond Scott’s Soothing Sounds for Baby', a new album in which he reinterprets a selection of Raymond Scott’s iconic work originally released in 1962.

The contributions of Raymond Scott to our world are immeasurable and pioneering, and his records still sound totally unique. But one could say that, viewed through the lens of what we now understand to be "ambient" music, the meaning of his compositions has changed since their inception. Now, we (mistakenly or not) see them as archival or documentarian pieces preserving an era of early electronic music and the capabilities and limitations of its time. They have become artifacts, a means to an end. So, with huge reverence to Scott's foresight and genius, Dylan Henner wanted to recontextualize those same ideas into the mindset and studio of a musician in 2024, to create a version of what Scott left us that corresponds with Henner's own perception of this music's purpose: soothing baby. He returned to the original records only once or twice, transcribing melodies and taking notes on timbre, before embarking on his own journey.
