“Field recordings and gentle piano soothe the listener in Joshua Carlton’s Remember Me As Light. An evocative piece that lulls the listener gently as it weaves it’s calming magic. The track feels agonisingly brief, but that only adds to its mystery and allure. ”

Artist shared few words for the story of this song with Nagamag:

“This is the closing song from my full length album titled moonlight under the black flag. I really love the gentle nature as the piano slowly grows and the ambience takes over With a sudden stop into nothingness.” – Joshua Carlton

Oregon instrumentalist Joshua Carlton toured the world with post rock band This Patch of Sky for the last decade. This lead him to compose music for television and film such as ‘Brand, a Second Coming’ (a documentary film on actor Russell Brand and his battle with drug addiction), and the Vice channel. He has also been featured in the McDonald’s Ramadan commercial, as well as large brands such as Petco. Joshua’s excited to share his new solo project. “This is an album that I absolutely had to write” he says of 2021 debut ‘Moonlight Under the Black Flag’. Joshua was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in February of 2020 and found solace in purging his emotions through the music he was composing. “This music is truly my heart, and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed creating it”.
