Dreaming Dreamer Dreams ~ Music Theme Dream 5 January 2014

We all dream. Even if we don’t recall what we’ve been doing or where we’ve been, we’re all busy during all those sleeping hours–and the waking ones as well. How often do you stop and consider just what your dream-life is trying to communicate? Do you take time out to day dream at will? Are you haunted by dark nightmare dreams? Do dreams fuel your creative engines? Or do they allow you to vicariously experience strange and wonderful things beyond the scope of your comfort zone? Where do you dream of wandering? What’s in any dream? Have your dreams ever taken you into unknown territory in your waking life? Dreaming can be a very dangerous thing depending on where the dreams lead. Or not. I guess that depends on what’s in your dream packages.

“Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?” 

Dreamer ~ Low Roar ~ Ryan Karazija ~ His live version is equally compelling, but the audio has a slightly more intense quality on this track. Or perhaps this is because simply offering the song encourages you to close your eyes and focus on the sound and lyrics without the visual component.

Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams  ~ Song: Erik Satie – Nocturne no. III. Don’t let the dark opening deter you from the rest of trailer for this ongoing dreaming which manifests in many diverse forms.

MrMofMs

The legendary director of “Seven Samurai” wants to invite you into his world of “Dreams.” One of Akira Kurosawa’s latter works, “Dreams” is a journey into some of his personal experiences of life and imagination.

A Shadow of Blue ~ A Dreamlife production by Carlos Lascano.  A waking dream about daydreaming. What do you dream about during your days?

*

Dreams ~ The Kills’ cover of Fleetwood Mac ~ A bit dire with shades of an impending storm,  definitely darker, and certainly deeper voiced than Nicks’ vocals. An entirely new sound dream in a voice. Frankly, I think The Kills kill this song like none other.

Requiem for a Dream ~ The London Symphony Orchestra ~ Serenity ~ Fan made video featuring River Tam, the ultimate “dreaming death dance girl”.  Some dreams entail confrontation, conflict and sacrifice. Firefly and Serenity fans know this score inside and out.

Love You More  ~ Tresspassers William

Nela Cotrim :

Published on Sep 30, 2012

Trespassers William was an indie rock/dream pop band known for its ethereal music. Originally from Southern California, they moved to the Sodo/Capitol Hill area of Seattle, Washington.
Formed in Orange County, California in 1997, Trespassers William released four albums and two E.P.’s. Anchor (1999) appeared on Sonikwire Records and is now out of print. Different Stars was self-released in 2002 and was re-released twice — most recently on Nettwerk Records on October 19, 2004. In early 2004, the band moved to Seattle. Their third album, Having, (mixed by the Flaming Lips producer, Dave Fridmann) was released on February 28, 2006. The band toured the United States and Europe several times, including a U.K. tour with Damien Rice and a festival appearance in Spain with Morrissey. The band’s music attracted modest press coverage and exposure, most notably in British magazines such as NME and Uncut and was featured on such television shows as One Tree Hill, The O.C., Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Felicity, and movies such as A Love Song for Bobby Long and Annapolis.
The band disbanded at the beginning of 2012. A b-sides and rarities collection titled Cast, which also contains an expanded edition of their 2009 EP The Natural Order of Things, is scheduled to be released by Saint Marie Records on September 4, 2012. Anna-Lynne Williams continues to write and record as Lotte Kestner and one half of the duo Ormonde. Matt Brown is working on more Disinterested material and is playing with and producing several other groups.
Matt Brown — guitar and keyboards Anna-Lynne Williams — vocals and guitar Josh Gordon — bass guitar, drums, percussion, guitar Ross Simonini — bass guitar and keyboards Nathan Skolrud — drums, bass guitar, and keyboards Jamie Williams — drums

    I really like the Fleetwood Mac cover, though it could lead to some haunting dreams, I think!

    • January 6, 2014 at 6:04 am

      Agreed, Sincerely Kate. Exactly what gives it the edge.) Looking forward to your dream show.

    Sorry I didn’t get round to doing a post with you guys. Love you choices. Here’s my addition;

      OOO gracias for your addition, DS Nelson. Much appreciated. Hoodie singers for everyone.

    Are there dandelions in Iceland? Or must he dream those, too? The kills are killer. Vuk was sweet. Kurosawa has done better (just my opinion) of course the trailer might not have shown the best. Do like Requiem for a Dream 🙂 Love You More sounds like a lazy WARM afternoon, just drifting …. drifting …. sleepy …. sleepy …. I am getting sleepy ……..

    • January 6, 2014 at 6:13 am

      Dandelions in Iceland—there are images of them on google, so I guess there are.Very hardy plants.

      http://www.iceland-nh.net/plants/data/Taraxacum-sp/taraxacum_sp.html

      Kurosawa may have better–but this one suited nicely at the moment. The Kills continue to grow on me–more listening by default. Are you a Firefly fan, Bear?
      I could use warm afternoon or two.
      Did you enjoy your nap?

      • January 6, 2014 at 5:40 pm

        Didn’t nap, did other stuff. Napped about 4 AM.
        Temp is dropping now. Warm up, rain, get cold. that is the usual pattern. It is 15 F colder now, at noon thirty, than it was at 10:30 AM. Your front must be sagging down here. ‘Twas sunny for a while yesterday, but foggy/misty (foggier closer to the ocean and then here close to the river) as the sun set, and rainy in the early AM, drizzly now. And getting colder. Freeze later. At this rate, probably sooner 🙂 . All those tiny buds .. bye bye, the mosquito is saw yesterday? Bye bye, The toads and frogs that woke up? Bye bye.

        I should not have commented on Durosawa. I haven’t seen that movie so I don’t know how good it is. I’m sorry. The trailers can only hint. I wouldn’t even be thinking about it if you had not gone to the bother of doing enough research to post that trailer. Thank you.

        No, I’m not really a Firefly fan, but I do like that piece of music, which I have read is used over much in commercials and TV shows, etc in Europe (YouTube comments) and bits of it in other movies. Clint is, himself, keyboard and some percussions in the “reply” clip.

        I wish you some warm comfort with a warm cuppa and snugly covers, warm feet, and some nice (safe) radiant heat source …. and the time to enjoy it and a good book and some music. 🙂

      • January 6, 2014 at 7:59 pm

        It’s cold enough here to freeze the birds’ drinking water within minutes–even in the sunlight. At least I can keep putting out the sunflower seeds and peanuts without issues as they come around looking for fuel.

        I found several very interesting clips from the Kurosawa film but picked this one because of the comments about nature and painting and art. I am wondering if some of the negative comments about the film are the result of the same mentality that does not ‘get’ Cloud Atlas, Until the End of the World and other more complex films. Some minds just do not take well to the imaginative contexts of others. Van Gogh didn’t get a lot of market appreciation while alive –and isn’t it interesting what’s happened regarding his art since then.

        As for Firefly, and the film Serenity which was made to give closure to the storyline,—another thing I discovered as a result of son’s incessant proddings to watch. Another score for him. 🙂

        Warmth–yeah–a little fireplace time does wonders.

        I’m very sorry for all the buds, frogs and toads in your swamp lands.

      🙂 Very cool performance share, Bear. More than one way to incorporate visuals and music.

    This is so beautiful, I’m healing some chest congestion and just what I needed to soothe myself today. Thank you beautiful soul.

    • January 9, 2014 at 5:15 am

      Hello jameselmore :). I’m glad the music provided some healing for you. There have been studies that prove music does indeed our mental and physical health. Get well.
      Thanks for sharing you light.

    So glad I finally found time to listen to this. It does pay to keep the things that I get during crazy times at work. I especially loved Trespassers William. I also enjoyed the Shadow of Blue film. I find that I like pieces like that that leave you to fill things in. Dialogue sometimes only gets in the way. Thanks for the great choices. 🙂

    • January 9, 2014 at 5:12 am

      Oh Deborah, thank you for mentioning Shadow of Blue—it’s such an interesting piece of work that packs a lot into a short period of time. Yes, sometimes dialogue can get in the way.
      Trespassers William I discovered by pure chance. I do enjoy them very much at certain times. Thanks for listening and finding things to enjoy. i know these are quite different than your selections. But I think that’s what makes these themes work–everyone finds something new that that we might have otherwise never encountered. )

    Beautiful all the way through. “Low Roar” reminds me of Fleet Foxes a little bit. My only disagreeable point came in the Akira Kurosawa trailer where the lady tells an obviously freezing man that the snow is warm. I bet it’s a great film aside from that. 😉

    • January 9, 2014 at 5:23 am

      Hey Johnny, how goes the flow? Now that you mention it, yes, there is common ground between Fleet Foxes and Low Roar. Oddly enough today while composing the post about The Burglary I listened to an entire Low Roar album online– and it really balanced me out mentally. I guess the music was hitting all the right tones.
      I’d read about this Dreams film and seen clips prior to this post. I now have access to the full film. I’m curious to see how it goes.

    Hey! … I’m loving Trespassers William. Never heard of them before but wonderful. And who doesn’t love Erik Satie? Jeanne

    • January 15, 2014 at 5:47 pm

      Hello Jeanne, Trespassers William is a new find for me–and the vocalist–Anne aka Lotte Kestner. YouTube has come a long way from when it first started up and I enjoy what it offers in terms of exploring music and films. I had no clue there was electro swing either until recently. What fun! Nice to see you. 🙂

  10. January 15, 2014 at 6:25 pm

    Nice to see you, too! Taking a lunch break – which means I have to actually go get food – but I see you’ve visited my blog and commented – thanks! I’ll look and respond soon. Just coming out from under a mound of work – exhausting but I shall not complain. It’s what pays the bills and I like what I do, sooooo … sometimes I’m bloggy and sometimes I’m not! 🙂
