in darker waters
winds will change
don’t drown tonight
It’s cauld – it’s dark – through the dread waste
Yon starn, sae red, and sma,
Presses its weak, encumberd, beam,
To perish in the sna’.
Och! Och! it’s mirk – the furious storm,
Howls round the hill sae high;
And black, and awfu’, on the earth,
Sits down the laiden sky.
[Robert Couper, 1804]

“…And I’ll see you
And you’ll see me
And I’ll see you in the branches that blow
In the breeze
I’ll see you in the trees…”
(Angelo Badalamenti/David Lynch)

In this May edition of DreamScenes, you can expect a bit of contemporary classical, a bit of piano, a bit of jazz , some drones and (of course) some ambient soundscapes too, to bring you a small hour of quiet (when needed).
The April DreamScenes edition features a collection of fine tracks from recent releases – meandering from ambient dreamscapes to abstract expressionism to jazzy modern classical, overtone throat singing suites and distorted choirs…
All in one night’s dream….
March 2017 DreamScenes edition: Music for the End of Winter ……
Music for the last days of Winter……
The february DreamScenes edition may feel darker than usual.
Possibly due to the dark winter days or, who knows, the general darkness of current times.
But don’t worry: there’s a sweet surprise at the end. So keep listening!
Let’s kick off a brand new year of monthly DreamScenes with a selection to tickle your inner eyelids.
A selection to induce a variety of images: some movie/series/game soundtrack tracks, a bit of drone, post-classical piano, and some pieces that are a bit harder to classify.
