9 May ·. A short document of the "Somnium" album presentation which happened during a cold full moon night in late November, at the ARTIS Planetarium, Amsterdam. Before that night we spent one week preparing inside after opening hours, and working in such an inspiring place with Thijs Biersteker and his team has been such a special experience. We couldn’t have wished for a better album launch, with two sold out shows, and all friends and family being present. The first NL/UK/FR Somnium tour has come to an end, and has been the most amazing adventure for me. Thanks to everyone who helped to set up the quadraphonic sound systems, and the surround lights and projections and thanks to all of you for coming along for the ride, I loved to discover all these new worlds with you all!

Genre: Progressive Electronic. However, there are a number of moments in which the music feels like its missing something, that it's somewhat hollow. That missing piece is a number of tracks that feel like instrumental versions of songs that originally had vocals attached.

Somnium is the third studio album of Jacco Gardner, and unlike its predecessors, it is entirely instrumental. Somnium pays homage to the novel of the same name, which was written in 1608 by Johannes Kepler and is considered to be the very first science fiction novel. This book fascinates me because it was basically Kepler travelling in his mind to a non-existent world while describing it, and his journey, with amazing detail. Many of his imagined sensations are actually really what happens when one travels into space, which happened almost four hundred years later

After a couple albums of relaxed chamber pop built around baroque instrumentation and gently psychedelic songcraft, Jacco Gardner did some drastic renovations on his third album, Somnium. In the three years between records, Gardner relocated to Lisbon and found himself enmeshed in reading old science fiction novels and pondering the cosmos as he wandered around his new city of residence.
