Justin Lassen Presents Somniferious featuring John Angelo Cramer!


After months of work, from November 2013 to July 2014, I am very proud to present to you the first part of maestro/violinist John Angelo Cramer’s musical journey. Pronounced “Som-ni-fare-e-us” (Somniferious).


"Somniferious is that “in between” state of consciousness where one is not fully awake or fully asleep. It’s the borderland of sleep, a place where solutions and answers meet the questions that fill our own lives. A state of mind where we meet our fears and our fantasies, where physical reality intersects with the expansiveness of eternity."

It is ambient, orchestral, epic, meditative music with emotive solo violin based on ancient chants from the 12th century. A passageway to another reality. Part I is a brave introduction to this world we’re creating, and it includes a re-interpretive cinematic remix as well.


I met John Angelo Cramer at PreSonuSphere 2013 in Baton Rouge, LA last year. He contacted me and wanted me to produce him and work with him in a colalborative way, and we’re both extremely happy with the outcome. There are physical print CD’s that you can exclusively order through Nimbit’s store, for only $5.99 from and you can check out John’s blog at :)
