What’s it like when you can no longer sleep? The consequences resulting from permanent insomnia are extremely debilitating and far-reaching.
But how unbearable and harrowing must it then be if you’re finally able to sleep, but every sleep could potentially result in death? What kind of unimaginable torture must this already lost battle against falling asleep be?
And what if hypnagogic hallucinations and sleep paralysis also present themselves? Half-awake and fully conscious of falling asleep, intensive, oppressive images of your own death sleep manifest themselves, yet you’re unable to move. Entombed in your own body.
An unaffected person is unable to fully imagine all this and all its consequences. Anna-Varney Cantodea’s new release grants us a glimpse of such a ‘Todesschlaf’, and is one of Anna-Varney Cantodea’s most captivating and sombre releases yet. Every note is magnificent, and wonderfully complemented by the visuals.
