CLASH goes behind the scenes with Max Richter

Bookmark and Share

Max Richter rarely looks back. The producer is always thirsting after fresh information, forever absorbing new ideas. That said, when the occasion arises he finds it beneficial to take backward glance. 2004's studio album 'The Blue Notebooks' was re-issued this summer, given a Super Deluxe treatment on Deutsche Grammophon.

As part of this, Somesuch and Globe Productions have teamed up to produce a short film based on the album's cut 'On The Nature Of Daylight'. In the liner notes for the LP Richter describes the piece as "a meditation on violence and its repercussions, inspired both by the Iraq war – which was looming – and my own experiences."
