In 2015 composer Max Richter released his landmark piece, Sleep, first premiering the eight-hour lullaby on BBC 3’s radio station and setting the Guinness World Record for the longest live broadcast of a single piece of music in the process. But perhaps Richter’s most memorable accomplishments were the sensational live Sleep performances he gave in sold-out venues around the world. What made these concerts so groundbreaking wasn’t just the length of continuous music, but also the physical concept. Instead of sitting in chairs or on lawns, the audiences were provided cots and beds and encouraged to sleep during his performances, allowing for an immersive musical journey. Following Richter through his creative process, and exploring how this visionary concept was brought to life, MAX RICHTER’S SLEEP documents the composer’s creation from dream to reality. Featuring the soul-soothing music from his incredible live performances, MAX RICHTER’S SLEEP is more than a film. Much like the orchestral masterpiece, it’s an immersive experience. — G.S.
