Sleep Orchestra is UK based sound producer and experimentalist Christopher Pegg. Chris has studied music technology at College and University level for over 5 years and holds a BA(Hons) in Popular Music Production as well as an FdSc and BTEC National Diploma in Music Technology. His interest in experimental and minimalist music started back in 2007 when he first heard music from the likes of Murcof and Biosphere. After a number of years of studies and sample collecting, Chris has produced a number of what he calls "mini-projects" that have ranged from the minimal techno and extreme glitch productions to the more ambient styles such as this, his latest mini-project, Sleep Orchestra.
Sleep Orchestra is Chris' latest experimental platform into the ambient world and mixes his interest of micro glitch samples with long evocative drones and effects. As well as his most influential artists, the Sleep Orchestra project is also inspired by the Sci-Fi movie "Sunshine", which was directed by Danny Boyle. This experimentation into how the vacuum of space can be described through sound is the starting point for many of his tracks.
“I like to think of my music as a soundtrack to movies that are in your head. I want my listeners to use their imagination and to see what they see when they hear my soundscapes.”
“Endless Forms [Exhibit A] is my interpretation of alien life on planets we are still yet to find, and how they look, move and communicate.”
“I hope to follow this release with other compositions in the Endless Forms series in the future”. -Sleep Orchestra
