Sleep Concert at Gray Area, 24 Feb 2018
Soundscape Productions SP032, Download
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 perhaps a bit of a distraction upon multiple listenings. 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. ©2018 by Robert Rich.
