This hand assembled package contains 30 wonderful minutes of music to fall asleep to by Peter Broderick, a high quality CD and 3 inserts in a beautiful cardboard box with a picture of a sleeping sculpture of Peter Broderick. It also includes a direct download of the whole piece in 320kbps MP3 or FLAC + an excerpt of the piece that you can share with your friends.
I don't really remember exactly when and where I met Peter, nor when I challenged him to make something to fall asleep to. But I don't really mind anymore, because the work he sent me is so breathtakingly beautiful. Homemade choir singing, a piano so intimate it feels like a hug at the right time, and an incredible sense of pace, space and sensitivity. Music for a Sleeping Sculpture of Peter Broderick is a whole lot more than just a "boring composition that will have you go zzz in no time". It almost seems as if it was made by someone who knew all along how sleepy music was supposed to sound. I probably already used too many superlatives, but I really don't mind if you question the credibility of this little promo blurb. To me, this is a most wonderful addition to the 5 previous releases. And an excellent thing to have on headphones when you're in your bed. You can be stressed as hell, put this thing on, and you'll bliss out before you know it. Slaapwel Records is really proud to have this one.
