Egg Wizard This is my favourite sleep recording after Rich's Somnium - kinder and more gently encompassing than Max Richter's foray into the medium; more complex and less repetitive than Tom Middleton's excellent recent debut. Harmonious, spacious and loving waves... unbelievably delivered live. Favorite track: Sleep Concert at Gray Area, 24 Feb 2018, Part 3 of 3.

Chris Fox It really is great to sleep to. This piece is a triumph. Superbly done, Mr. Rich.

lutzi I listen to this subtle masterpiece at work. Eight hours, sometimes daily. You get both heightened concentration and an acoustically flavoured day that is gently flowing. Great joy!

Presented as a part of the Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco CA. This was the first live-audience sleep concert that Robert had performed in the Bay Area since the mid-1980s. The concert was sold out, with a capacity audience, but people could listen to the simulcast worldwide on SomaFM. The spoken introduction is a typical beginning to one of Robert's sleep concerts, offered here as a bonus track, although you probably won't want to listen to it more than once. The musical portion of the concert is 7 1/2 hours long, divided into three sections approximately 2 1/2 hours each because of file size restrictions. The three sections should flow smoothly together if played in an uncompressed WAV format, although there may be clicks at the transitions if played from MP3.
