For those isolating at home and finding time to play the piano, I’m going to make some of my sheet music available for free. First up: A Catalogue Of Afternoons #maxrichtersheetmusic 

One on my favourite collaborations has been producing Vashti Bunyan’s Lookaftering. Kieran Evans’ thoughtful film tells Vashti’s extraordinary story. A beautiful window into the mind of a unique artist. @kierboyo  @ambobdim  @FatCatRecords  Watch here:

This film was shot on a beautiful Braun Nizo Super 8mm camera by @YuliaMahr  as the children slept and I composed through the night. Full version:

Orlando - I started to think about the similarities with variation form - the musical process where a recognisable theme is transformed and re-ordered to reveal new aspects of its character and chose this process of variation as the basis of the music.

Throwback to our #TinyDesk  concert at @nprmusic  w/ @ACMEnewmusic  while on tour last year. Full concert:

Awful news about Johann. His thoughtful and moving work survives him. Going to listen to the beautiful Virðulegu Forsetar now.

Performing SLEEP is a marathon. Normally it takes me a week to change my body clock around so that I can make it through the night. Getting through the eight hours is a zen practice really, I can’t afford to let my mind wonder or think about how many hours of playing are ahead...

It takes a week to recover from a SLEEP performance, but anyone that has been to a show will know how special these occasions are. I feel a connection to the audience that's impossible to replicate at a normal concert. It's incredibly hard to perform SLEEP, but it is SO worth it.
