I.M.M.U.R.E. - Somnia
I.M.M.U.R.E., who contributed a lot to DNA Production catalogue in the past, now presents a new considerable work with clear composition and idea.
This album called "Somnia", a Latin equivalent for English "dreams", is a compressed flow of dream essences expressed in sound. Against all expectations, it's not calm and fuzzy soundscape but intense and droning ambient layer on background with dense build on "natural" sounds layer in front. Throughout all 43-minute piece minimal and powerful background layer is continually competing with "natural" sounds while clear light consonances hover over all.
Emotional peak of the piece is in the beggining of last third when Troum-like dry pulsations raise and begin to support "natural" sounds layer harmoniously interlacing and painting unusual pictures of dreaming subconsciousness.
And in the end of "Somnia" is the same haze of "natural" sounds floating above droning background.
