In 2015, Max Richter released the now legendary Sleep, an eight-hour instrumental investigation into music and sleep(‘s relationship). He sought to transcribe the essentially neurological phenomenon as a piece of music. With the help of David Eagleman, an American neuroscientist conducting relevant research, he investigated notable patterns and behaviours to be reflected in his compositions. He incorporates repetitive figures of speech, loops and drones that stimulate certain phases in dreams and deep sleep. The music aims to be an expressive medium for the human subconscious.



Eight years later, Richter has collaborated once again with his colleagues from the original project, Brian Snow, Clarice Jensen and Yuki Numata. While Sleep was originally devised for piano, strings, soprano and electronics, the modified version of Tranquility Base focuses on synthesisers and electronic sound effects. The name of this 30-minute EP alludes to Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong’s landing on the moon. Max Richter is therefore taking Sleep to a new level, elevating his work into the time and weightlessness of space. It begins with a linear organ melody with new musical layers, such as reverberating sounds, strings and synthesisers, which are gradually introduced. It is a work comprised of 16 interwoven variations, taking a look at the myriad themes of Sleep, twisting them and fusing them together. The album ultimately encourages disconnection and calm. ©Lena Germann/Qobuz
