Description
Kevin Stephens has been writing music under the name of Saffron Slumber since 2004. Originally started as a project to explore ideas in ambient music, the project has continued to evolve over its lifespan to include aspects of noise, drone, and other forms of experimental composition. Former releases could be found on Pocket Change Records, Skrow!Media, Zenapolae, Luxus-Arctica Records International, and Circlesandlines Recordings.

“Somnogen” consists of 6 tracks and has a complete duration of 36 minutes. The first five tracks are three to five minutes long. Beginning with the noisier “Möbius Thought”, it becomes more calm and droning with the following three tracks. Fragile melodies are woven together with meandering, droning sounds and glimmering organic patterns. “Onyx” returns to the noisier, darker ambiance of the beginning and serves as a bridge between its melodic predecessors and “Oneiric Sun” – a massive 18-minute track, slowly breathing and evolving from a dark and mellow foundation to a burning star and back again.

Enjoy this wonderful and warm piece of drone- and ambient-music.
