Description
Hey everyone! It has been too long since I made a song. Luckily I got one ready that I've been working on for a few months. It's progressive rock mixed jazz fusion! It's title "Oneironaut" comes from "oneiros" which is dream. It's a term given to people who constantly lucid dream. In order to do this one must be aware of continuity errors to become self conscious in a dream (Hence the song changing all the time). I used to keep a dream dictionary for the longest time and had much practice with lucid dreaming myself. I wanted to try to see if I could put the feel of dreams into music so here's what I came up with. There's more experimentation compared to previous works like "Scattered Memories Pt: 2" and "Drifting Out of Sanity". I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Feter! I'm glad you enjoyed it. It has taken a while and school gives me less time to work on it. I think for now I'm going to listen to everyone else's works in my free time! :3

Yay! I wasn't sure if they'd fit but those couple genres often cross over- it's just that it seemed so scattered which I was trying to do but still not sure what people would think! Thanks a bunch! : )

Sweet! I used to keep a dream diary also. So there are actually people who lucid dream constantly?! That would almost be a curse! Great song concept. Cool composition. Nice production! Love the outro acoustic guitar part.

Lucid Dreaming = Awesomeness :D
Thanks for your kind words! Yeah it's possible to lucid dream all the time! Lucid dreaming is crazy fun! When you train you can do it on your own will or not! I'm glad you enjoyed the song! I wish I could find that lucid dreaming book so I could link it to you. It was done by actual legit researchers! :D

Short but sweet. Hear a bit of Vai in there. Clever ending. My favorite part is the groove you set up at 1;30. THAT is too cool. Hope to hear more from you soon.

Thanks! :D
Thanks a bunch! I'm glad you enjoyed the groove change at 1:30! It surprisingly felt complete at the time it was so I kept it short. I had some other parts but it didn't feel right. At least the rotten parts are cut out and only the sweet stuff is left! :3

is a cool word. i love your choice of sounds for this song, from the heavy rock drums and dirty guitars to the loungy glockenspiel. You do the changes in mood very well, no jerky transitions - cool ending. Man, you could have made this go on for 10 more minutes and I would have happily enjoyed it. Great concept and very well executed.

Yay :D
Thanks Shay! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm glad you felt that the transitions and variety worked for I felt dreams are like this too! For the ones that go on for ten minutes you may enjoy the Liquid Tension Experiment, a side project from Dream Theater! Got to love progressive rock! X3

Nice journey. I dig the rhythmic changes, the juxtaposition of audio textures, the sense of lightness. Thanks for sharing this.
