Aaron Martin and Dag Rosenqvist
Sundance Film: Menashe
American and Swedish composers Aaron Martin and Dag Rosenqvist came together in 2011 under the name From the Mouth of the Sun. Their first album Woven Tide was released by Experimedia in 2012 and they returned in 2015 for their second album Into the Well. In 2016, three pieces from Woven Tide played an integral role in David Wingo's score for Jeff Nichols's Warner Bros. feature Midnight Special. Using a vast array of acoustic and electric instruments, including cello, piano, banjo, pump organ, and guitar, while utilizing analog equipment, Aaron and Dag craft unique musical landscapes full of contrasts, where melodies and ominous textures intertwine. Since 2005, both artists have also had their solo efforts released by influential imprints like Preservation, Miasmah, Type, and Fang Bomb. The music for the Sundance premiere of Menashe marks the first original score for a full-length narrative film by Aaron Martin and Dag Rosenqvist.
