THE SOMNAMBULIST is the project of a fluid international collective of musicians whose unique and ever-changing approach to their work, which defies any easy classification or assignment to a specific genre, freely embraces the transient and infinite nature inherent to music and art in general.
With their fourth studio album, Hypermnesiac, they achieve a sound capable of representing a swerve, a shake, a look into the crack. Over the span of 40 minutes, the profound and multifaceted voice of Marco Bianciardi ventures into the territory of new wave turmoils, industrial chewings, jazz dislocations and funk tremors in a way that is highly cinematic, willingly overstepping boundaries which nevertheless become strained by a shadowy, yet blazing, flood of feelings.
