Dreams of Damascus

Get Flash to see this player.

This composition is based on images from a dream I had about roman type column ruins, palm leaves and blue sky. set in a desert I had been chased by armys to perform a belly dance with some other prisoners in cages. The weird thing about this dream is that when I got back from Turkey there was a postcard on the table for me from Palmyra (a place i'd never heard of) - and yes now i know its a place in syria. i had no idea that the sender of the card was there at all. on the front of the postcard was a picture of that was very similar to what i saw in my dream! - just one of lifes peculiar mysteries.

Cool soundscape!
I definitely saw the belly-dancing caged prisoners--great job realizing your dream-image! And your strings & percussion have a great vintage-movie-soundtrack vibe: well done!

Spooky Story!
This is really, really good. I could imagine it as a sequence in a film, maybe a James Bond movie or similar.

A little advice
Don't eat cheese just before going to bed...it only gives you weird dreams like this. Belly dancing blokes is not an image I'm too keen on conjouring up in my head!!. Another very atmospheric piece Aron. Like it. mark
