about

Somnus the Roman edification of the mythological god of sleep. A pure reflective passage to a sound world where the timeless moment recedes and shed the excess of rhythm joining at a harmonious core. Drawn on the early 1980s evolution of ambient music aesthetics and carved into form by the vessels of digital and analog synthesis. Transformative, transcendent existing without boundaries.

Review from Sonic Immersion by Bert Strolenberg:

Alpha Wave Movement’s “Somnus” delivers a calming and overtly lush sonic canvas, a nice addition to Gregory’s already extensive discography. Drawn on the early ‘80s evolution of ambient music aesthetics, the 6-track outcome offers a warm blanket of gentle and slow unfolding free-form textures along pastel-colored sequenced structures in timeless motion. During the 54-minute pure ambient ride I was on and off reminded of Steve Hillage’s “Rainbow Dome Musick” but also of the meandering soundscapes of Don Slepian and Steve Roach from the early days. The 10-minute “Ting-Sha” shifts to an Asian drone sound with distinct meditative flavor, while Roach’s “Structures from Silence” shimmers through the flowing chords of the last track “Patterns of Fragility”. All in all, anyone who fancies harmonic, boundless and relaxing ambient soundscapes should check out this release.
