"Because the night is never dark or light enough"
An ethereal and poetic voice that moves through minimalist and cinematographic sounds that oscillate between synth-wave and dark wave, turn the New Yorkers R.Missing into an electronic band that manages to represent the chaos and loneliness of the contemporary world, using the sadness as a catharsis form, translating love, loss, passion and life itself, in his music. His latest album Placeholder for the Night, is the consolidation of a career, conquering a sound as complex, timeless and subtle as it is deep and magnetic, encompassing all possible limits. You could say that Placeholder for the Night is the EP that the band has always been writing since they started, and they do it with a contemplative sound, full of emotions and depth, with a lot of musical resources that augur a bright future for the New York band .
We are pleased to interview you, taking advantage of the release of your upcoming EP, this December 11.
Hey Sharon, where can we find you right now? How did you start your day?
A grey room in an outlying district of New York with a faint green minus on the door.
I don't start the days because I have 24-hour mornings.
Can you tell us a little about your experience? Where are you from / how did you get into music?
Several light dots on the eastern seaboard, and they don't connect.
I may have liked a couple of songs once, but I don't recall them and I'm not sure I ever will again.
How was R.Missing born?
Out of a terminal echo.
Who have been your main inspirations (both musical and in 'life')? And how have they affected your sound?
Four or three sentences from 'El Túnel' by Ernesto Sabato.
Most likely zero effect on the sound.
How would you define your sound?
Evenings with explanatory notes.
How would you define your work? What is the concept and story behind Placeholder for the Night? What did you want to transmit?
An updated version of a Faraday light experiment, although I am not qualified to conduct it.
Because the night is never dark or light enough.
What has led you to emphasize this album in multiple genres? What draws you to these genres?
I'm not drawn to any descriptions or genres, they just float on the periphery, all lifelike.
What are you looking to achieve with this outlet?
What other projects are you working on right now?
The simplicity and the severity.
Do you have any final words of wisdom?-
I never had any introductory ones.
