MAX RICHTER, Path 5 (delta) — MAX RICHTER, from SLEEP 

MAX RICHTER, Path 5 (delta) — MAX RICHTER, from SLEEP (September 4th, 2015)

       MAX RICHTER — from SLEEP (September 4th, 2015)MAX RICHTER, Path 5 (delta) — MAX RICHTER, from SLEEP (September 4th, 2015)Ξ★  Osobní ukolébavka pro frenetický svět. Velmi úmyslné politické prohlášení. Chce vědět, jak se naše mozky vypořádají s hudbou, zatímco sníme. Je to tak trochu neurologický výzkum. American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) dodává měkké vokály a struny. Je to vřelé, pomalu se pohybující fantazírování bez ostrých hran a rozpačitě mlhavý zvuk, jako by zaznamenal sousedovic zvuky spoza dveří nebo pod vodou. Richter hraje na klavír, varhany, syntezátory a nízko–hlučnou elektroniku. Max Richter působí v jako Vennův diagram prostoru mezi alternativní populární hudbou a avantgardou. Práce byla silně ovlivňována symfonickými díly Gustava Mahlera. One–hour version / eight–hour version.
Ξ★  Blending classical and electronic elements in his music, Richter divides his time between scores and stand–alone albums.                               © Recording. Copyright: Mike Terry / mike@miketerryphoto.com

Max Richter, 'Path 5 (delta)'
By TOM HUIZENGA, September 03, 2015 
Ξ★  • Sleep. It’s both an oasis where our physical and mental batteries get recharged and a playground for the subconscious. It’s also the subject of Max Richter’s latest project, SLEEP, which inspired this video by Yulia Mahr. A composer, pianist, remixer and musical tinkerer, Richter has written a soundtrack for slumber, eight hours in all, which will receive its premiere this fall in Berlin. Instead of seats, audience members will stretch out on beds, encouraged to actually drift off to the music. It helps that the event is slated for midnight to 8 a.m.The benefits from a sound night of sleep are becoming more apparent — as many a Fitbit fanatic will attest. A recent study in the journal Sleep suggests the more shuteye we get the less likely we are to get sick. But Richter points out other advantages. He believes the pace of our 21st–century lives is too hectic. Slowing down, even with your music, can be a good thing. He thinks of the project as “personal lullaby for a frenetic world.”  What Richter’s proposing isn't exactly new. He acknowledges his forebearers like John Cage, La Monte Young and Morton Feldman, each of whom experimented in long–form, slowly paced compositions. In the video, gently swaying, angelic voices offer a soothing contrast to shots of bustling New York and Berlin crosscut with sleepers. It’s all sped up in time–lapse black and white with an inverted visual effect. The piece, Path 5 (delta), is from an hour–long offshoot from SLEEP, music Richter wrote in the same spirit but intended to be heard with eyes wide open. The full, eight–hour version of SLEEP will be released Sept. 4 as a digital album, while the separate one–hour suite, called from SLEEP, will be released on CD and vinyl the same day.

Ξ★  http://crackmagazine.net/article/music/max-richter-from-sleep/Ξ★  “. . . a lot of good music . . . I actually like the music . . . much of the melodic material is catchy, in a slow kind of way . . . “Sleep” is functional music, furniture music, a soundtrack for relaxing and sleeping, and as such it’s successful. It’s not “classical” music, and shouldn’t be judged as such. It does what it claims, and it's enjoyable, and that’s a good enough recommendation to anyone who wants some light music to listen to when taking a break.” Record Review / Kirk McElhearn, MusicWeb International (Coventry) / 01. September 2015
Ξ★  “. . . the sleep was far calmer with Richter's score in the background, but if you listen to it you gain so much more . . . plug in “Sleep” and slightly reframe your mind–set with this sad, and eventually indistinguishable, fug of beauty. Turn your day into a Lynch film where nothing happens. Enjoy it. But this was written to be listened to, and to be lived. Don’t dream this away.” Record Review / Jon Falcone, Drowned in Sound / 04.

Ξ★  “. . . [“Sleep”] is warm yet haunting and melancholic . . .” Interview / Steven T. Hanley, Quietus (London) / 31. August 2015
Ξ★  “. . . it’s smooth and sweet, with nothing to give you nightmares, but as a piece of high–class chillout music, it works very well. It will save you a lot of time building playlists, too.” Record Review / Joseph Twin, Mixmag (London) / 10. August 2015
Ξ★  “. . . these are lush, glacially–paced movements that continually glide in and out of focus like fragments of half–remembered dreams. The aptly–titled “Dream 3”, “Dream 8” and “Dream 13” form the spine of the album and sound exactly as you would imagine; all delicate piano and ponderous violin . . . [the claustrophobia of “Space”] makes for the most arresting listening on the album . . .” Record Review / James F. Thompson, Crack Magazine (London) / 10. August 2015
Ξ★  “. . . Richter works in a tone that is sincere and serious; many of his pieces could be described as beautiful.”  Record Review / David Ng, Los Angeles Times / 30. August 2015
Ξ★  “. . . [“Sleep” is] smooth and sweet . . . as a piece of high–class chillout music, it works very well.” Record Review / Joseph Twin, Mixmag (London) / 01. September 2015
Ξ★  “. . . the music here is, as expected, played largo and is clarified to the point where it’s thoroughly cleansing, plus the string quintet pieces approach bass–heavy ambience in a beautifully organic way . . . This is a landmark project . . . much of which succeeds in being thoroughly bewitching.” Record Review / Phil Smith, Record Collector (London) / 01. September 2015

September 2015
Ξ★  “. . . [Richter] is a modern composer par excellence, without fear and seemingly at the peak of his powers . . . The first delicate piano chords of “Dream 1 (Before The Wind Blows It All Away)” should ideally lull us into a cocoon of cotton wool gentleness . . . While “Sleep” can be regarded as eight plus hours of ambient drift, it also grows into a piece of considerable emotional weight.” Record Review / Euan Andrews, Quietus (London) / 09. September 2015
