Album Notes
Relaxed Machinery presents, "sleepMODE", a snapshot of the rapidly-growing label celebrating it's first anniversary. Thirteen global artists bring their own unique perspectives and life experiences to "sleepMODE". With the album at just over two hours, each artist had free rein to use as much track length as needed to evoke the feelings and emotions they wished to express for this project. The music ranges from ambient soundscapes, electro-acoustic, to modern minimalism; using synths, guitar, bass, field recordings, and processing.

Excellent selection from a fast-growing ambient/electronic label
The Relaxed Machinery label celebrates its first anniversary with its 9th release: sleepMODE, a compilation featuring all 13 of the label’s artists.

As can be discerned from the track titles, some of the artists used the Philip K. Dick-inspired question “When machines sleep, what do they dream of?” as a starting point. Much of the music is fairly minimal, some starkly so, and many pieces have an industrial component. But sleepMODE has – and needs – no overarching theme or concept.

Any concerns with track length were ruled out fom the get-go, giving the musicians free rein to take all the time needed to set down their journeys. The result is a 128-minute ambient-electronic feast, averaging nearly 10 minutes per track. All but one are unique to this release...
