Dream Studies - Durée explores on the distortion of time in dreams. It recreates possible dream worlds with generative sonic approach. In dreams time is liberated from the ticking clocks. It extends or compresses according to our purest emotions, becoming non-linear flux in motion.
Dream Studies - Durée consists of a series of generative micro-compositions, each micro-composition reflects a sequence of a dream. Based on a oral and written records of time-bending dreams, I recorded and collected a selection of field recordings as raw material for generation. Micro-compositions are generated with granular and tape synthesisers by time stretching and rearranging the field recordings, like a sonic montage. A specially designed multi-dimensional chaotic system is developed to modulate the generation process, in order to simulate the chaotic dynamics and time perception of dreaming mind.
