From The Mouth Of The Sun: lovely droning ambience

From The Mouth Of The Sun - Like Shadows In An Empty Cathedral* by experimedia

From The Mouth of The Sun lie somewhere on the ambient spectrum near Eno's Music for Airports and Tim Hecker's (stunning) Ravedeath, 1972. Their debut, "Woven Tide," is available later this month from Experimedia. The music can also be heard in the soundtrack for Remember Me, My Ghost, a new film by Ross McDonnell and Carter Gunn, directors of the hive death documentary Colony. That film was scored by Kansas-based composer Aaron Martin who, with Swedish musician Dag Rosenqvist, make up From The Mouth Of The Sun. From The Mouth Of The Sun: Woven Tide

UPDATE: Thanks to Experimedia's Jeremy Bible for giving us an embed code to hear the full album, below!


  1. I love it. Reminds me a little bit of Johann Johannsson’s Fordlandia with a little bit of Deaf Center. It’s a very addictive sound, slowly building and crashing, then decaying. Thanks for the link, Pesco!

  2. I was prepared to mock the author for having crap taste in music, because all the music  I’ve ever heard that was compared to Brian Eno, including Brian Eno, is just lame.  (And I say that as a fan of dark ambient and noisy glitchy droney weirdness.)

    But this is genuinely neat stuff, so thanks!I’m afraid I may be turning into a hipster or something.  Sigh.

      1. Well, you might already have heard some of these, but Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto work together is very minimal dark a glitchy, with Alva Noto’s solo stuff being heavily dark and glitchy.  Andrew Chalk’s compostions are very nice.  Richard Skeleton seems to be my favorite at the moment, he has lots of albums but I am very fond of ‘Landings’.  If you are looking for a good place to start Tim Hecker (mentioned above) and Fennesz are solid choices.  These tend to be more dark ambient drone, Alva Noto is more glitchy.  ]

        1. I wrote a whole big list of suggestions and it got eaten by the login process. >_<  But Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto was on my list (in collaboration, not so much separately), as was Tim Hecker.

          Christopher Willits is another whose music alone is pretty decent (glitchy and guitar-based), but is better when paired with Ryuichi Sakamoto.

  3. Thanks for the recommendation! 

    However, I tried for ten minutes to find a way to purchase the album, but Experimedia’s website is such a mess that I eventually gave up.

    Has anyone been able to successfully navigate to a page where you can actually purchase this album, preferably in a digital format? If so, could you share it here? Thanks.

    1. Says the album will be available for preorder on Friday the 20th right at the top of the page linked in the article.

  4. Whoa. Yeah. That’s the shit. My only complaint is you leave me waiting until the end of the month. I need that album available for immediate download, STAT!

    1. Direct pre-orders for vinyl, cd, digital, and a complete bundle with poster open next Friday at … digital is delivered immediately upon order with all formats.

      Thanks to David for sharing this and to those who checked it out.

  5. As soon as I read a comparison to Hecker’s Ravedeath, I had to listen. Powerful stuff. Also reminds me a bit of moments on Sunn 0)))’s Monoliths and Dimensions.

    Thanks for sharing. I’ve marked the 31st on my calendar.

  6. There’s a very wide variety of ambient music these days and drone itself is a different genre. Still, glad to see this type of stuff represented here.

  7. The music is capital, and I must congratulate the cover art too– a beautiful composition of texture, color, and typography. Sun and “Woven tide” could not be expressed better.

  8. So well done! Can’t wait to put my preorder in this week! I’ve been itching for some good ambient, and I think this might scratch it.
