Sophie Hutchings fourth album is now available as a heavyweight 180g vinyl with new artwork to accompany.
“The interpretation with this album was kind of in the direction of the liminal stage between sleep and wakefulness. It’s all based around lucid dreaming and the senses of almost running through an imaginary world. Until you wake and everything that felt real actually isn’t.” – Sophie Hutchings, reflecting on Wide Asleep.
“Wide Asleep is the fourth album from Australia’s Sophie Hutchings. The Sydney-based pianist and composer walks in and around the deep trenches of sleep before taking the plunge into what is an eternal gap, lying between the unconscious depths of sleep and a set of shallow, ascending steps that lead towards conscious awakening. She sees this world through her own eyes, and the music segues between the two states without ever fully waking up.” “We’re blissfully caught up in the web of a dream-zone, the music preferring to remain in a world where dreams really do come true. Wide Asleep is imbued with imaginative, phantasmagorical music; it’s a gateway to another world.” – Fluid Radio
