Sleep tight, Silent Night. This 7+ hours long release compiles drowsy sounds from the Quantum Natives and Genot Centre roster, that will guide you on the way to the dreamland. Unique, handmade sleep mask by designer Hana Kubešová included – take an exclusive peek at them now!
This compilation is a farewell of sorts, a sonic goodbye to the popular event series Silent Night that used to take place at the Ponec Theater in Prague. It was not your regular party; instead of dancing and jumping around, you were able to snuggle up on a mattress and fall in and out sleep while listening to experimental music provided by a plethora of local and international artists, and later munch on a breakfast with everyone involved. “Silent Night XVII” is a recreation of one such night, one of 17th February, 2019, and includes a few live recordings from the event, as well as other tracks following the same theme.
To bring the idea of a sleep-supporting record to perfection, Czech designer Hana Kubešová created a very special line of sleep masks, all handcrafted, which you can see in the dark and mysterious editorial by Tereza Havlínková below. Turn the volume up, get cozy under crispy sheets, sip some camomile tea, put the mask on, and let yourself drift into dreamy worlds, far away from the reality of everyday worries and mundane problems. Drooling and/or snoring allowed. Sleep well!
