==========================

After many years of trying, we now can offer the full 7 hour download of Somnium through CD Baby and iTunes, although we needed to separate it into six chunks. We recommend CD Baby for this download. The Musiczeit download also works well, in the original three chunks.

Possibly the longest continuous musical composition ever released on any format, Somnium represents an ambient music landmark. Robert Rich has meticulously crafted a studio interpretation of his notorious all-night Sleep Concerts, incorporating newly recorded electro-acoustic, electronic and environmental textures, with elements created for the original live events. Somnium guides the listener through an ever-changing dreamscape, with levels of subtle detail that reward both active attention and background listening. Deep and sonorous, mysterious and diffuse, liquid and hypnogogic.

Standard DVD-video format, playable in all DVD players.
7 hours of nocturnal ambience from the inventor of Sleep Concerts.
