The soundtrack for your journey
Edge Of The Universe is the musical alias of Sean Penn, a self-produced electronic musician and guitarist. Perhaps best described as cinematic electronica and chill post-rock, EOTU creates music that varies from ethereal, groovy, cinematic, trippy, and intense.
The debut album Redshift was released in 2019, and received local airplay (KPCA), internet radio (SomaFM, Electrodrome on WIGWAM) as well as the attention of music podcasters (Vladimir Bresnix). Nominal Burn was also featured on the Audionautic podcast Cosmic Sonics. The album Moving Mountains arrives in May 2021.
EOTU's music takes inspiration from many influences, including: Simple Minds, Muse, Tycho, Solar Fields, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Asura, Kaminanda, Pink Floyd, Hooverphonic, Phutureprimitive, Mutemath, Steve Vai, Jane's Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rush, The Cult, Extreme, Soundgarden, Beastie Boys, Herbie Hancock, Jesus Jones, Thievery Corporation, U2, Van Halen, Hans Zimmer, The Cure, Ken Andrews (Failure, On, Year of the Rabbit), Zero Cult, Coldplay, The Fixx, Lenny Kravitz, Peter Gabriel, J. Geils Band, Genesis, Fishbone, Nine Inch Nails, The Beatles, and Groove Salad on SomaFM. It was Hooverphonic that truly brought EOTU to the world of electronic music, with their album A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular.
When not making music, Sean runs the music software company SonaMetro.
For fun, EOTU also writes cinematic game soundtracks with his son.
