The ambient music outlet for composing duo Adam & Paula.
Muvii Mento take their name from an adaptation of the musical term movimento - meaning movement.
"We got to thinking about how sound is actually the movement of a wave of energy through matter. Something about that thought feels very grounding to us, that sound is a physical force you can feel moving through your body. We liked that idea and felt like it really suits the vibe of our music".
Muvii Mento have reversed the usual process of music first and then the artwork is made to fit. Instead all of their tracks start with the artwork and the music is directly inspired by that image.

Una is a contemplative piano instrumental and the debut solo release of A. J. Pickering, otherwise known as Adam from The Daydream Club. When it comes to piano, Adam makes a habit of improvising on an emotion, capturing the spontaneity of a feeling. "With Una, I was feeling alone, singular, like I was talking but nobody was listening. So as I often do, I turned to my piano, pressed record and let my fingers work it out, like music therapy".
Rocking between the peace of the C major and the tension of the F minor chord, both technically unrelated and yet creating balance together. "Without overthinking it, I found myself moving between these two different keys. Sadness is never a simple emotion, I guess on the one hand I've got a lot to be thankful for in life but sometimes external factors can wear you down. It's a constant cycle between the peace and tension, hopefully the two can find harmony in the middle."
