My intro to German-born UK-based avant composer Max Richter came via The Leftovers, that fantastic yet short-lived postapocalyptic HBO series from Damon Lindelof. Richter scored the show’s main theme, and numerous moments throughout the series, to dramatic, exquisite, evocative effect. His Leftovers work made you feel things, deeply. He’s also been tapped for loads of other film and TV soundtracks—ArrivalBlack Mirror, Mary Queen of Scots, Ad Astra—in addition to releasing eight albums that vary between ambient, classical, and post-minimalist sounds. In 2015, he released Sleep, an 8.5-hour-long “listening experience” based on the neuroscience of sleep and meant to score a full night's rest. He performed it in its entirety outdoors in LA’s Grand Park. Audience members were spread out on 560 beds, and it was timed so that the final movement occurred at dawn. He was joined by members of the American Contemporary Music Ensemble and singer Grace Davidson, both of whom will accompany Richter on his Seattle date, during which they’ll be staging a shortened version of Sleep. He’ll also premiere material from his upcoming album, Deutsche Grammofon.
