In a very pleasant altitude, formidably conceived upon a great dome of relaxed universes, Somnium is a work developed over a concept of almost ecstatic sonority, although the sound is flexible and versatile, enjoyable in an increasingly delusional soundscape, that floats upon a river of transcendental and speculative calmness, that perpetuates itself on the path of a sinuous and symbolic sensibility. Over the sensitive stream of its everlasting dream-like state, the unusual soft layers of a beautiful set of harmonies requires full immersion into the surface of the sound, that revolves itself in a perennial state of dense fruition, that makes you feel the substance that revolves in each and every note of its tracks, in a marvelous feeling of undefined synchronicity between your soul and the universe.
With very soft and peculiar harmonies, grounded in a serenity that transcends time and space over a musical dimension that reflects the devotional anthems of your extemporal soul, Somnium is a very ethereal album, that leads you to a delusional scale of existence, upon which everything demands a different antagonism, to be able to live.
In so many levels of beauty and calmness, that builds a universe of dense effects inside the many places of your spirit, Somnium manages to be a very intense, intuitive, dense and fluent ambient album. Highly energized and wonderfully conceived, this record is condensed upon a layer of unreflective paroxysms, upon which your mind will be profusely absorbed, to finally become exhilarated by a dose of unreality, that allows your mind to rest, for as long as you want.
Like most albums on the genre, if you don’t like this kind of music, you definitely have the chance to be bored. Nonetheless, if you really enjoy ambient pieces, and all the different layers of emotion the sound is able to evoke throughout the entire run of its majestic sculpture of sounds, you will feel deeply amazed by the straightforward colored nuances brought by the enchantment of the music. A valuable, poetic, serene and very artistic work, Somnium is a formidable debut, that not only highlights the best qualities of the genre, but reworks in an entirely definitive way the exceedingly monumental aspects of ambient music, in a categorical and exponential style, upon which the music reshapes its melodies, to become a better version of its own allegorical proficiency.
