"Dark Matter" is the first downtempo electronica album by Nowo. Eight songs musically explore the darkness all around us, both actual and metaphorical. The music is positive and optimistic as beauty can be found in dark spaces and light can only really be appreciated after darkness was experienced.
Coming from a rock background, Nowo did not try to emulate current electronica trends. Instead he focused on creating individual soundscapes for all the songs, incorporating more rock based chord changes and harmonies, fusing the mostly electronic tracks with a smattering of acoustic piano and guitars.
