The sound of sleep
OUT NOW: ‘Snoring by Erik Kessels’
It’s the sound that keeps the earplug industry afloat. The sound that drives sleepless, bleary-eyed partners to beat their sleeping other-half with a pillow and into separate beds.
Why would anyone want to immortalize the sound of air rattling noisily through cramped nasal passages on vinyl? Well, why not?
SNORING on vinyl actually has more practical uses than you might first think.
Like a lot of popular music snoring is one of those noises that grows on you. At first it drives you past crazy until you’re verging on homicidal. And then, you get used to it; eventually it becomes familiar, comforting even.
This experiment in minimal music serves as a soothing lullaby for people who find themselves separated from their favorite snorer, people pining for a snoring ex, or as the perfect soundtrack for people burning the midnight oil.
SNORING on vinyl is a dream come true, a musical tribute to the only sound that can be described by one letter…ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
