Opion Somnium is a symphonic- often instrumental ambient/rock collective from Albuquerque, New Mexico, building melancholic yet monumental musical movements that make use of a wide variety of instruments. Such include; piano, violin, cello, bowed guitar, organ, singing saw, accordion, trumpet, harp, contra bass, synth, various percussion, with electronics and field recordings to create 'musical movements which reverberate enigmatically'- Ambientrance. Somnium has releases on ambient labels such as Drone Records (Germany), Zenapolae Records (Philadelphia), Kolorform (Seattle), and Goodnight Moon Music (New Mexico/ New York) with multiple self-releases being distributed throughout Europe on Drone Mailorder, who calls it, 'music for big emotions from this new discovery'. This new album, a collection of side project pieces from Opion Somnium, arrives in a more acoustically made way, and with the addition of an amateur choir, yet still retains it's ambient-slow core essence of 'long minor chords and oscillations like the matter sucking of a black hole'- Grooves Magazine. Having been referred to the likes of, Mum, Godspeed You Black Emperor!/ A silver Mt. Zion, Sigur Ros sans vocals, The Album Leaf, Rachel's, and even The Polyphonic Spree, one can see influences and also a mind set, apart from that of usual 'pop' standards in the sense that the songs are often quite lengthy, and crescendo in and out of multiple movements to form, on a whole, 'some spectacularly long drones'- Neo-Zine. These huge projects are the creations and makings of one person with the help of many musicians from all around to form 'beautiful and endlessly sad compositions made by classical instruments but also using noises and drones in a very sensitive way'- Drone Records
