eLucive Dream, Part I

Those who experience lucid dreams might recognize the sound effects at the beginning and end of this track ... maybe? It's similar to what I usually hear, anyway. This music is about the beginning of the typical lucid dream that I mostly fail at exerting control over. (More to follow in the coming weeks) ...

Created using Finale 2009c, the Vienna Symphony Library and Absynth 5


Oh geez, I know exactly what you mean by 'sleep paralysis'. Those sounds at the beginning and end are incredibly unnerving for me. Even the middle is creepy and unnerving, though I can see how others would find it calming. In fact, I can't listen to this very long, so... good job on this in capturing the fear associated with this kind of thing. At least for me.

It's interesting to hear about someone else going through a kind of sleep paralysis. Though I don't know exactly what you mean with it. For me, it's when I want to wake up and I can't. It's rare, but when it does happen, it's almost always followed by my waking up and still being able to feel/hear/see what was in the dream for a few seconds. Even more than the odd sounds I hear, I don't like knowing I'm awake, but still seeing something in a dream.

When that happens, I find I will either think about it too much and scare myself into 'hiding' under my sheets in some incredible irrational fear that something might get me, or I immediately get out of bed, turn on a light, (since it is always dark when this occurs, aside from one time) and focus on something completely different. If there's someone around that's still awake, I'll go sit with them for a bit.

Creepy ambiance, but also peaceful. It does make me think of exploring some dark/dangerous area in a dream or fantasy world. Good work, as usual. :)

I never had any dream that I can control, and sound effect aren't something I'm familar with. But the sound effect are pretty calming and nice. Giving image of distant grassland plain. I like it.

Interesting! ... (first of all, thank you for the feedback/rating) ... when I wrote this, "calming and nice" was about the last thing on my mind. My lucid dreams are usually short and frustrating. Occasionally I've had breakthroughs and had very long and satisfying experiences, but they are the exception. (Hence the title "eLucive Dream") ... I wrote this song from a place of frustration about "the dream that keeps getting away" ... the sound effects are what I hear when going through an episode of sleep paralysis (a strange phenomenon that I've experienced since childhood and is usually a precursor to one of my lucid dream experiences).
