24 Postcards In Full Colour

"This is a frequently haunting album" - Pitchfork.com

"a powerfully inspiring way of making what could be mundane into something artful, even if it's just for a moment." - ALLMUSIC.COM

"To enjoy this album, you needn't share Richter's appetite to reclaim the ringtone as a potential medium for good music - it's a pretty spectacular standalone listen too" - BOOMKAT

"...if the pieces contained on 24 Postcards in Full Colour came pre-loaded on every cell phone purchased, most incoming calls would go unanswered, for fear of interrupting Max Richter’s beautiful tones." - Dusted Magazine

Max's ringtone album. Fragmentary and partial by nature, 24 postcards is a varied collection of evocative miniatures. The longest track is just under three minutes, whilst the majority clock in at around just sixty seconds, a series of sketches on the nature of time and memory, stitched together to form a series of jump-cuts and foldbacks. As though extracting the absolute essence, simple, plaintive piano and string melodies butt up against passages of rich, borderzone ambience - radio static / voices leaking through dense, shifting drones.
