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. These cerebral pursuits led him to some musical exploration.
