Berlin-based THE SOMNAMBULIST gathered around Italian expat Marco Bianciardi in 2009. Since then, the musical trio has released three LPs: “Moda Borderline” (2010), “Sophia Verloren” (2012) and “Quantum Porn” (2017). For the band’s current line-up, Bianciardi has joined creative forces with Thomas Kolarczyk on electric and double bass and Leon Griese on drums. Still, collaborations with other musicians from the Berlin indie, experimental and jazz scene are common. 
Besides their own musical universe, THE SOMNAMBULIST earned international reputation for composing the original live soundtrack for the German silent movie “Berlin – Sinfonie der Großstadt” (Walter Ruttmann, 1927), which they performed in movie theaters all across Europe: this performance won the 2014 Rimusicazioni Film Festival Award in Bolzano, Italy.
