What's it called?:
Music for Insomniacs
What does it sound like?:
Matt Berry had trouble sleeping for a time last year and when he did he would go into his studio and make music. He ended up make a very personal album which he plays all the instruments. It consists of two 20 minute pieces of lush synths, strange sound effects and ghostly choirs. Designed to help you sleep Berry has said that you shouldn't make all the way through either piece, in fact you may never hear all of it! In the interests of research I did managed to stay awake and can say that it is brilliant. Many mood changes throughout the pieces with some lovely sounds. But it is nothing like this other albums so it may not be for you if you liked them.
What does it all *mean*?:
Well, it should send you off to sleep. Not been successful for me so far but that may be that I found it so interesting and compelling to listen to.
Goes well with …:
Bedtime? And I found it great to cook along with!
Might suit people who like …:
Eno, Budd, Jarre but mostly Mike Oldfield.
