Kenotic is the debut album by American ambient/post-rock band Hammock. It was released in March 2005 by Hammock Music. Reception of the record was generally positive, and cemented their musical reputation before their EP Stranded Under Endless Sky was released later that year.

"Through a Glass Darkly", "Winter Light", and "The Silence" were all based on Ingmar Bergman movie titles. The track "You May Emerge From This More Dead Than Alive" came from the dialog of Winter Light.

On September 5, 2015, Hammock announced through their Facebook page that a deluxe remastered version of the album would be released to mark its 10-year anniversary.
