About mnemonic

Mneme, also known as Mnemosyne, is a titanic muse of the Greek mythology who existed before the Gods of the Olympus were created. Mneme is also the namesake of the river in the underworld, which, unlike the river Lethe, evokes memories instead of oblivion. Memories are mental phenomena that allow us to relive the past. As images or fragments of images, they disrupt the present and evoke nostalgia, sometimes alienation. These topics form the substantive foundation for the work on the album mnemonic.

Targeted overlays and shifts create a densely woven sound collage. It is like watching an old film where distances and focus changes: Scattering and bundling as a game of memories. Resonances and echoes meet "torn" themes and alienated drum sounds. They are a mirror of the fragmentary and describe the intimate chronicle of the fragility of everyday life. It is neither a glorified or restorative approach to the past nor being “in search of lost time”. Rather it is about the relation between individual and group, between personal memory and collective memory - with all implications and complications
About m o s

The Vienna based trio m o s (formerly month of sundays) is creating instrumental music that oscillates between acoustic and electronic sound aesthetics. Drawing influences from minimalist and improvised music, m o s fuses spontaneous interplay with meticulous structures. After the release of their debut album in 2015, they were invited to well-known festivals throughout Europe and nominated for the New Austrian Sound of Music program (NASOM) 2018/19. Concert tours have taken the band to New York City, London, Athens, Istanbul and Tehran, among others.
