THIS is Progressive! An 8hour composition by Max Richter entitled SLEEP. Thanks to my friend Tim Cox for posting this! (check his blog and music out, it’s great Prog from the UK!) This is part 3 and I can’t wait to hear the whole thing, it’s absorbing and pulls you in and watch the video on as big a screen as possible with all the lights out, you’ll feel it and may even doze off it’s amazing. A beautiful piece of music by an incredible artist.
Acclaimed Britsh composer Max Richter has written a new landmark recording: SLEEP is 8 hours long – the equivalent of a night’s rest – and is actually and genuinely intended to send the listener to sleep. “It’s an eight-hour lullaby,” says its composer, Max Richter.
The ground-breaking new work is scored for piano, strings, electronics and vocals – but no words. “It’s my personal lullaby for a frenetic world,” he says. “A manifesto for a slower pace of existence.”
