BETWEEN AWAKE AND DREAM
Am I Asleep Now?
"Between Awake and Dream" is a sound performance based on theological enviroment that illustrates the stages we go through during sleep, from falling asleep to waking up.
The structure of the concert and the score are parallel to the various stages of sleep and are used as musical motifs - conceptual music score.
The artist made a sleep test and took the raw data he received and used it as an material for the performance. (visuals and sounds)
The performance is divided into 4 main parts:
Falling asleep, light sleep, deep sleep, dreams&nightmares.
For each part of the show I will compose and play live music using a different technics and instruments.
Sleep is a routine event that takes about a third of our lives, and is still shrouded in mystery and full of myths and theories. From Freud's dream interpreter to today's sleep consultants, sleep, in all its components, interests us when we are awake.
The state of consciousness during sleep is different from the state of wakefulness, and the mystery that surrounds it has fascinated mankind since ancient times. We know that sleep is essential for the health of body and mind however, knowledge about it is relatively low and many topics are in learning and research and have yet to be solved.
