Book of Dreams

Günter Schlienz, one of the leading creators of modular electronica placed at the intersection of ambient and new age, gained positive reviews with his last album, “Autumn”, the first one released on Zoharum. Now he comes back with a reissue of “Book of Dreams”. First released in a small amount of 100 copies on vinyl, it was sold out in just a few weeks. Now this excellent album is back in expanded form, complemented with two additional tracks. It is a surprising release, because it is completely different from “Autumn”, consisting of shorter recordings with much more dynamic.

Original sleeve notes for the album: “Book of Dreams” was inspired by notes about dreams I wrote down shortly after I woke up from my sleep. In those strange moments between fantasy and reality, when you can still remember the images and feelings of the dream before they are rubbed off by daytime thoughts and troubles. The compositions which can be heard on this album trying to recapture those images and feelings mixed with a second thought, kind of a sober interpretation of the sometimes wild and furious adventures with somnia.

The album “Book of Dreams” is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 250 copies. The cover was designed Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek). It is mastered by Niko. The whole production process was overseen by Michał Porwet.
