    Max Richter with ACME: “Sleep” 

    With The American Contemporary Music Ensemble

    The American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME), led by Artistic Director Clarice Jensen, is dedicated to the outstanding performance of masterworks from the 20th and 21st centuries, primarily the work of American composers. The flexible ensemble presents fresh work by living composers alongside the classics of the contemporary. ACME’s dedication to new music extends across genres, and has earned them a reputation among both classical and rock crowds. NPR calls them “contemporary music dynamos,” and Strings reports, “ACME’s absorbing playing pulsed with warm energy. . . Shared glances and inhales triggered transitions in a flow so seamless it seemed learned in a Jedi temple.” ACME was honored by ASCAP during its 10th anniversary season in 2015 for the “virtuosity, passion, and commitment with which it performs and champions American composers.”

    ACME’s instrumentation is flexible, and includes some of New York’s most sought-after, engaging musicians. Notable highlights of ACME’s 2017-2018 season include a performance with Meredith Monk as part of Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival, Auckland Arts Festival with Max Richter performing his 8-hour work Sleep, and performances presented by the Festival of New American Music at Sacramento State, Kennesaw State’s Festival of New Music, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Kitchen, The Lot Radio, and The Kennedy Center.

    ACME has performed at leading international venues including Carnegie Hall, BAM, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Kitchen, (Le) Poisson Rouge, National Sawdust, Columbia University’s Miller Theatre, St. Ann’s Warehouse, Symphony Space, The Morgan Library, The Stone, Joyce Theater, Montclair’s Peak Performances, Washington Performing Arts, UCLA’s Royce Hall, Stanford Live, Constellation Chicago, Chicago’s Millennium Park, Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, Jordan Hall in Boston, Harvard’s Sanders Theatre, The Library of Congress in DC, Virginia Tech, Newman Center at the University of Denver, Flynn Center, Duke Performances, South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center, Dartmouth’s Hopkins Center, The Satellite in Los Angeles, Triple Door in Seattle, Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis, Melbourne Recital Hall and Sydney Opera House in Australia, and at festivals including the Sacrum Profanum Festival in Poland, All Tomorrow’s Parties in England, and Big Ears in Knoxville, TN.

    World premieres given by ACME include Ingram Marshall’s Psalmbook, Jóhann Jóhannsson’s Drone Mass (commissioned by ACME), Caroline Shaw’s Ritornello, Phil Kline’s Out Cold, William Brittelle’s Loving the Chambered Nautilus, Timo Andres’ Senior and Thrive on Routine, Caleb Burhans’ Jahrzeit, and many more. In 2016 at The Kitchen, ACME premiered Clarice Jensen’s transcription of Julius Eastman’s The Holy Presence of Joan d’Arc for ten cellos, the score of which had been lost since the premiere in 1981. Jensen transcribed a recording of the work to re-create the score. ACME has since performed Joan at the Met Breuer and will perform it at The Kennedy Center in spring 2018.

    ACME’s recordings appear on the Deutsche Grammophon, New World, Butterscotch, and New Amsterdam labels. ACME released its first portrait album on Sono Luminus in 2017, featuring music by members Caroline Shaw, Timo Andres, and Caleb Burhans, plus John Luther Adams. The Strad raved, “Warmth and care are fully evident in the ensemble’s immaculate, considered performances – the four composers could hardly wish for more committed, convincing accounts of their music.”

    From ACME-The American Contemporary Music Ensemble: “SLEEP by Max Richter at Spring”

    Max Richter’s Sleep
    Performed by Max Richter with the American Contemporary Music Ensemble and Grace Davidson, soprano.

    In what is a very limited engagement, Max Richter brings his album SLEEP to life for an overnight, eight-r live, orchestral invite only experience that will send attendees to their dreams. SLEEP will finally receive its New York debut at Spring Studios on May 4th and 5th, after having been performed in Berlin, London, Sydney, Madrid, Zürich, Paris, and Amsterdam, Austin, and Auckland.

    Replacing the traditional concert going experience, attendees will immerse themselves into an eight-hour overnight SLEEP experience complete with Beautyrest mattresses along with the ultimate night-time sound-track which is intended to send the audience to sleep; “the music is at times so soft and trance-inducing that you can’t help but slip into a relaxed state,” commented the Wall Street Journal. Scored for piano, strings, electronics and vocals, it’s Richter’s “personal lullaby for a frenetic world,” he explains, and “a manifesto for a slower pace of existence.”

    From NPR Music: “South X Lullaby: Max Richter” 


    This might very well be the ultimate lullaby. Right at the start of the 2018 SXSW Music Festival, Max Richter’s eight-hour composition Sleep was performed overnight to an audience tucked into 150 beds. They — the audience, not the tireless group of musicians who performed the piece — slept, dreamed and sometimes snored through this trance-inducing experience.

    “Sleeping and being asleep is one of my favorite activities,” Richter told NPR in 2015, just before Sleep premiered. “Really, what I wanted to do is provide a landscape or a musical place where people could fall asleep.”

    Richter has performed Sleep live a few times now, and brought the experience to Bass Hall in Austin, Texas. In the video here, you’ll see Richter himself on keyboards and electronics, along with the ACME string ensemble and soprano vocalist Grace Davidson, surrounded by those snoozing listeners. This is just an excerpt of the eight-hour concert, but should induce a moment’s calm whenever you should need it.

    For the first time, Sleep is now available on digital service providers.
