I just had the awesomest dream within a dream, wherein I was improving the most compsed melodic sweetest piece of piano music ive ever composed... I
don't play piano (not seriously anyways) and I don't compose music. I do play guitar, and have messed around on the piano, to where I can find the
notes on it. But anyways, I wasn't playing the piano in the dream, I was just hearing the notes and chords, like streaming, fast, but I had time to
think exactly what to do next right before I did it. Also, I must stress this was beautiful music by any standards. And even though it was all in my
head in the dream, I knew which hand would be doing what. It was so incredible.
If only the brain had a file>save as button I know that this was a song, melodic and composed sounding(because it was actually improvised in my
head?), but I can only small chunk of it.
Anyways what is really wierd, is that first I don't really play piano, and second, I could never 'compose' music like this in waking life. I mean
not even close. I was thinking about the harmonization and the melody simoultaneously, which is something i've struggled to do for quite some time
now without much success in real life. I will try to elaborate more later, because I do want to actually have a discussion on this, but I just woke
up and had to get this written down somewhere before I forget. One last thing
I do not think this was just my brain telling me what I wanted to hear, i.e. making me believe I was hearing and composing, without actually doing it.
I strongly believe I actually was coming up with it in the dream, because for a few seconds after I woke up, I could vividly remember pieces of it.
Ok, there's a lot more I need to say about the details of the whole thing, there was a lot more going on than just that, but I must go for now, and
will wait to see your guys' initial comments.
