We offer Mastering Services for dark ambient works for artists/labels all over the world. And a music shop that contains among our releases also releases from other labels and music for collectors on vinyl format. A real music shop is in the making, located at about 15 minutes walk from Sibiu's historical center (Grand Plaza), here the small map for additional info.
A bit of history:
Label had two houses actually, 2011-2016 Essentia Mundi was based in München, Germany and before and after that in Sibiu, Romania.
Initial aim: Essentia Mundi was founded in 2005 by C. It probably was the first dark ambient, drone, experimental and unconventional music label from RO/Transylvania. Its audience focus was always intended for international reach and less concentrated on the local scene - which was very thin. The EM label was primarily founded with the intention to release ABBILDUNG music and the interesting music of unsigned artists all over the world, to give a boost to this wonderful scene where "the infinite variety of music and noises is conquered".
Why Essentia Mundi concept and releases are of a darker shade?
"A profound thinker is not someone who thinks profound thoughts but rather someone whose life expresses or is emblematic of those thoughts. In the end it is then (conceptually) impossible not to go the 'bloody hard way' in both philosophy and in the attitude towards life in general. It is impossible to be a superficial person but not to be at the same time a shallow thinker." L. Wittgenstein
