Track Name: Love
"In dreams, emotions are overwhelming."
(From Michael Gandry's film The Science of Sleep)

"Dreams are both bizarre and beautiful, and I'm reminded of this each time I see Gandry's film, (and each time I wake from a weird-ass dream!) Dreams often times exaggerate our emotions and sometimes help us experience things we cannot experience in real life.

Love, success, clairvoyance, and happyness are four things we all dream about, and four sources of inspiration for this piece.

I. Love
We all long for it. Sometimes we find it. Sometimes we lose it. We never forget the first time we fall in love, or the last time we fall in love.

II. Being a Rock Star
Growing up as a young classical percussionist, I often hoped and dreamed that Radiohead had a "marimba" vacancy. It never happened, but that didn't stop me from dreaming about it.

III. Ghosts
Inspired by the opening scene of Gandry's film. I often dream about dead relatives and loved ones. Talking to them, embracing them, wishing they were still here.

IV. Fun!
Ever wake up from a dream, smiling and laughing? Those are the best! This is a pop tune inspired by Matt & Kim, a keyboard and drum duo I like from Brooklyn.

Things We Dream About was commissioned by A/B Duo in 2013. It's a duo for a flutist and percussionist, and is scored for amplified C-flute, bass flute, vibraphone, and drum set."
