An 8 Hour Place to Rest

I've been a sleep experimentation enthusiast since way back. I've also been a big fan of Max Richter's work since falling head over heels for his early works, particularly Songs from Before which I went bonkers for upon it's release. These two factors make Sleep a gentle collision in the very centre of my wheelhouse. Tristesse and I tuned in for Richter's world premiere of the entire work the other night and, as intended, slept through most of it. Most chill premiere of anything on record? What I heard was lovely and I look forward to hearing the rest, either consciously or unconsciously for many sleeps to come.

A one-hour collection of excerpts from the piece is available on all the usual streaming services –The full work can be purchased from iTunes and is certainly well worth the investment, day or night.
