Would you like to be sung to sleep? Or, if sleep really is unattainable, how about some soothing, calming music, music without words, to listen to while you are awake?
Megan Ihnen is commissioning over 25 composers, including yours truly, to compose wordless lulllabies for the sleepless, which she will then record. I’m very pleased to be involved. I saw her quote-tweet Shaya Lyon, who said, “On my list of fantasy commissioning projects: wordless lullabies for the sleepless, sung by @mezzoihnen”. Megan wanted to know if composers were interested; I thought it was such a good idea that I jotted down a rough draft pretty much immediately.
But we need your help to make it happen. Wordless Lullabies for the Sleepless is a project that takes time, commitment, and resources. Megan is insistent that every composer should be paid, for which I’m very grateful. And of course, each lullaby will take planning, rehearsal, recording, and editing.
So there’s a Kickstarter for the project. It ends on Monday 10th April. Please join us. And sleep well.
