Finding The Sound : Jonas Munk Talks ‘Altered Light’, Ambient Music, And Collaborations

I feel I owe Jonas Munk a debt of gratitude. Ever since discovering Jonas’ work with Causa Sui, his solo work, as well as the whole of Jonas’ record label he runs with Jakob Skott(Causa Sui drummer, graphic design guru, synth noodler) I’ve found this vast sonic world where I’ve spent a good portion of […]

Jonas Munk : Altered Light

Musician, label runner, and all around sound wizard Jonas Munk has a knack for building sonic masterpieces with nothing more than guitars, synths, and racks of blinking lights and patch cables. I liken Munk’s ambient/new age work in Manual, Billow Observatory(with Auburn Lull’s Jason Kolb), Ulrich Schnauss, and his solo work to falling slowly through […]

After nearly three years of working in-between other musical projects(Schnauss working in Tangerine Dream and Munk recording with Causa Sui, Billow Observatory, Nicklas Sorensen, and solo work) the two studio wizards have released their follow-up, […]

Ulrich Schnauss and Jonas Munk Are In “Perpetual Motion”; ‘Eight Fragments Of An Illusion’ Out 4/23

Billow Observatory Get Cinematic With The Gorgeous “Red Morning”; Watch Video

The musical duo of Jonas Munk and Jason Kolb, otherwise known as Billow Observatory, have turned subtlety into a gorgeous, slow-moving art form. Their ambient and new age “shoegaze” forms like fog rolling over a chilly lake. Heavily-effected guitar and synths cascade together into something altogether new and transcendent. Both on their own have made […]

Schnauss & Munk Return With The Gorgeous “Asteroid 2467”; New Album Coming This Spring

Sitting here as the sun is rising on a chilly but stunning Saturday morning and listening to the brand new single from sonic wizards Ulrich Schnauss and Jonas Munk. What better way to get the morning going? Coffee would be good. It’s been four years since the last Schnauss and Munk release, the electronic masterwork […]

El Paraiso Records’ Wild Ride

I’ve been following the Danish record label El Paraiso Records for close to seven years now. Ever since a friend hipped me to a band called Causa Sui and their album Euporie Tide. From the moment I hit play on that stunning album I’ve gladly followed both the band and the label down their very […]
