numün are a New York based trio of soundscape designers who combine a wide range of music and visual influences to create hypnotic aural and visual experiences. The band members include “ambient country” pioneer Bob Holmes (from SUSS) as well as new music composer and artist, Joel Mellin, and percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Chris Romero (both from Gamelan Dharma Swara).
Their influences range from sonic artists like Brian Eno and Morton Sobotnick, to the environmental visual artists Olafur Eliason and Elias Romero, to Balinese composer I Nyoman Windha and shadow puppet master I Wayan Wija.
They have announced a new album called voyage au soleil which will be out on September 4th via Musique Impossible. The original sessions came out of a project to commemorate the 50th anniversary of man’s first landing on the moon. We already shared the title-track; “first steps” is a new excerpt. Listen below.
