♫ Max Richter – King of Sleep

Sounds like Max Richter has composed this for me! Sleep is pretty sacred to me, already as a child I loved to sleep. It’s a way of processing the day (and life in general I suppose)

He has composed a classical eight-hour lullaby that’s appropriately titled ‘SLEEP‘. This piece will be premiered in Berlin this September lasting from midnight to 8 a.m. During this heavenly concert the audience will be lying in beds. Seems like a dream to me and wish I could be there!

You can buy the full eight-hour version digitally on September 4 via Deutsche Grammophon. A one-hour version of the piece will be released on CD, vinyl, and digitally.

What Richter says about it: ‘We spend a third of our lives asleep and it’s always been one of my favourite things, ever since I was a child. … For me, SLEEP is an attempt to see how that space when your conscious mind is on holiday can be a place for music to live.’

However, I’m not convinced that my conscious mind is ever on holiday.. Can’t wait to listen to this! Here’s a teaser..
