Sleepy Music
Alla Zahaikevych, Sviatoslav Luniov, Maksym Shalyhin and Oleksii Retyns’kyi

Sleepy Music is a special kind of electroacoustic music, which cannot be performed in the
context of the ordinary concert. This is the music of sound and silence borderline, as well as of
attentive listening and meditation ... It is the music of immersion into dreams or “diving into the
dream’s depths”.

Sleepy Music will last four hours. Please take sleeping mats/pillows with you.
