Mono No Aware


limited white 2lp

Released: 13th Oct 2017

out of stock

rich, swooning textures swirl in an intensely affecting experience that seizes the imagination – mesmerising.

this is the first compilation to be released on PAN, collating unreleased ambient tracks from both new & existing PAN artists. the compilation moves through more traditional notions of what is called ‘ambient’, to incorporating wider variations that fall under the term. ‘Mono No Aware’, “the pathos of things”, also translates as “an empathy toward things”, or “a sensitivity to ephemera”. A term for the awareness of impermanence, or the transience of things. A meditation on mortality & life’s transience, ephemerality heightens the appreciation of beauty & sensitivity to their passing. “The tracks feel like little mysteries to puzzle through, an invitation for active mood engagement. & the fact that so many different artists are brought here to participate in a singular expression of an ever-evolving genre makes it extra rewarding” 8.6/10 – pitchfork.
