Following suggestions from fellow artists (special thanks to Keith / The Drive To Uqbar) we concluded that there is maybe a way we can help Japan. Initially not planned so soon this year, the second Essentia Mundi compilation found its honest predestination now.
All the profits from the sales of it will go for Red Cross Japan.


The theme chosen is around the concept of “silence.” The compilation is meant as an eulogy to silence, simplicity and minimalism.

The style of the music is drone, ambient electronic, minimal compositions, a bit experimental, a bit dark. Music includes field recordings, electro-acoustic even some world music elements (Japan) and noises, it is not aggressive in expression, nor it is ‘happy’ music.
