Music for Sleeping: Socially Distanced Sleep Concert for One

from £0.00/ exc.booking fee & RESTORATION LEVY

Book Tickets
Snuggle up for a nap with a specially-created concert in surround, of music composed to send you to sleep – redesigned as an installation for an audience of one, to fit the requirements of social distancing. Feel free to bring your own pillows and blankets.
The music, by composer Tom Rea Smith has been developed over 17 years, originating in research into sonic weapons and trance-inducing music conducted by the artist at the Royal College of Art and the University of Liverpool. Different people fall asleep in different ways, so the Music for Sleeping project includes pieces which work in different ways, from simple, long, chords swelling and fading, or more complex patterns to distract your conscious mind, to nature sounds and mindful deep focus on everyday noises.
This is the first time this piece has been presented for an audience of one person and it should hopefully be an intimate, calm experience.
Music for Sleeping 4 was selected as part of the Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival 2020 Open exhibition. To see the rest of the exhibition, head over to Warrington Museum & Art Gallery.
