A Collection I

by In The Absence of Words

Transcending 08:10
Memento Mori 12:44


'A Collection I' is a compilation of six long-form dark ambient works by In The Absence of Words, which have been carefully selected to complement each other and to create a single immersive listening experience.

Each track was originally released individually here on Bandcamp between 2017 and 2019 and each track has been remastered and assembled specifically for this compilation.

'A Collection I' is available to purchase via Bandcamp's 'pay-what-you-want' option. The compilation is also the first time the music of In The Absence of Words has been made available via Spotify.

One of the earliest and darkest works in the entire catalog is the 17-minute 'Suspension of Belief,' recorded in 2015 and included on the project's first release in 2017. Contrasting it is 'The Meeting Point', one of the project's most serene tracks to date. Other highlights include the hulking 'Memento Mori', the windswept 'Northern Lights,' and the icy soundscapes of 'A Search For Silence.'

IN THE ABSENCE OF WORDS is a project I created as an outlet to express experiences and moods in other ways than words.
