A personal lullaby for a frenetic world, SLEEP is an eight-hour concert designed to be heard at night and with an audience, lying down. Encouraging pause and rest, Richter has created an exquisite hybrid of classical and electronic music across 31 uninterrupted pieces. Listeners are invited to fall asleep and drift in and out of consciousness and lucid dream states - and to enter into another world through the act of slumbering.
As part of this singular music encounter, concertgoers will be provided with camp stretchers within a special listening area. Between a session of yoga and the thrill of the communal nocturnal experience, Richter and his outstanding ensembles performance may well enrich the quality of your sleep but the absorbing soundscape may also keep you up in raptures, reaching its apotheosis as dawn breaks and sunlight streams into the venue, just in time for an ovation and maybe even breakfast with Max.
