204 Songs, 8 Hours 22 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This is music to get you through the night, guaranteeing a full eight hours of relaxing calm. Created in consultation with sleep neuroscientist David Eagleman, Max Richter’s Sleep treats a simple theme, Bach-like, to 30 variations. The beautifully varied textures, always close to 40 beats per minute, create an acoustic environment not unlike that experienced by a foetus in the womb. Nothing loud breaks the spell, nothing fast distracts us from this world between waking and sleeping.
