The compilation features 12 tracks from some of the globes most talented sound-designers; a subtly rewarding headphone listen from start to finish. It has been curated and ordered purposefully to induce a state of sleep, starting off minimally and gradually gathering tone and atmosphere as the experience goes on without ever boiling over or reaching a crescendo. Parts of the album are light and restful whereas traces of it tread darker territory. All in all, the imagery that the album conjurs sits perfectly as a soundtrack to the dreams one experiences during a nights sleep.
