Artists have long been fascinated by the subconscious. Salvador Dalí used to nap at his painter’s easel, ready to capture whatever melting clocks or lobster telephones drifted into his dreams. Composers do the same thing sometimes…
On this Saturday’s episode of Second Inversion: Strange Dreams. From the surreal to the subliminal, we’re exploring composers’ wildest and most bizarre musical visions.
One composer finds music in the snores of his sleeping partner. Another explores how our evening TV viewing seeps into our subconscious. We’ll hear from a composer who imagines herself in the dreaming mind of her pet turtle—plus, the whimsical story of a dream collector, who runs around picking up everyone’s dreams at the end of the night.
To listen, tune in to KING FM on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 9pm PT.
