sirseabass Carlin Dream starts off simple enough with a beat and the soothing synth, however it soon pulls you into a dream like state with its interesting sounds and gentle changes. A great piece to collect.

Uberman As if inextricable and automatic association with Vsauce wasn't enough, this song and its kin are utterly evocative and worthwhile pieces of music in their own right.

Asleep, dreaming, on a wintry night in 2011, bundled up in the bed of my Brooklyn apartment next to Carlin.

That's when and where I made this song. I remembered the soundtrack to my dream so vividly that when I woke up in the middle of the night, I got out of bed to recreate what was to become the beginnings of "Carlin Dream." It makes me wonder what buried corner of consciousness that melody came from, and why these sort of things come to people while they sleep. This isn't the first time I've dreamed of a melody and turned it into a song later. I guess it's not totally crazy that we can dream music though: where do melodies come from while we're awake anyway? I'd bet it's the same place.

As for this piece, I recently stumbled across the original music files and decided to build on that 3am stream of consciousness to finish it here, one year later.
