Hard Sleeper (Peter Maybury) has released CDs on a variety of labels worldwide including Sub Rosa, Static Caravan, Emigre Music and Tu m'.
Maybury qualifies his music as 'the detritus of pop', "tentative shapes and melodies pieced together through fragments of dislocated sounds. Drums, piano, analogue synthesizers and guitars combining to create music and images which travel a parallel journey through dreamy landscapes drifting in and out of focus" (Emigre).
An acclaimed designer and typographer, Maybury's work has featured in Blueprint, Emigre and featured in I.D. magazine's 'I.D. Forty' and numerous design books including 'CD Packaging - Innovation in CD Design' and 'The Typographic Experiment'. He also featured in the Candy curated '50 x 50' project for Habitat Ireland.
