"It’s a warm, slow-moving daydream with no sharp edges and a self-consciously hazy sound, as if recorded next door or underwater."
- The Guardian

"... his most daring and least conventional work ... a cross between minimalism and ambient electronica ... mixing lush instrumental harmonies and electronic soundscapes, the piece exerts a trance-like pull through its churning rhythms and pulsations."
- Los Angeles Times

This album contains a one-hour adaptation of Max Richter's epic eight-hour composition Sleep, which he calls "an eight-hour lullaby," believed to be the longest piece of classical music ever recorded. Richter plays various keyboards and electronics, accompanied by the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) and British soprano Grace Davidson. Richter says the full length project, intended to be partly heard while asleep, is an experiment in understanding how music is experienced in different states of consciousness.

"You could say that the short one is meant to be listened to and the long one is meant to be heard while sleeping ... we spend a third of our lives asleep and it’s always been one of my favourite things, ever since I was a child ... Sleep is an attempt to see how that space when your conscious mind is on holiday can be a place for music to live."
- Max Richter

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
