Details for a five-track EP of reworks, based off material from Richter's Sleep LP, have been revealed.
Sleep, released on the famed classical music label last September, is surely among Richter's most ambitious works: an eight hour-long "personal lullaby for a frenetic world" meant to be listened to while sleeping.
Now a vinyl EP with five new takes on Sleep tracks is on the way and due to arrive in early March. Mogwai and Clark appear on the A-side with London group Digitonal, while the flip features efforts from Jürgen Müller (an alias of US ambient artist Norm Chambers, AKA Panabrite) and Manchester's Marconi Union. A digital version will come in mid-February with a handful of shorter edits of the remixes as well.
