Tony Peluso’s Mysterious Dream Island.
Mysterious Dream Island is my attempted artistic interpretation of various realms of consciousness. I was inspired by waking life occurences like deja vu, meditative states, and altered states as well as strange occurrences in dream consciousness like lucid dreaming, the absence of physics, and time dilation.
I used a lot of electronic sounds and audio effects to create moods that are far removed from waking reality.
Electronic sound, much like dream consciousness, is a vast and limitless realm, which has a degree of separation from physical reality.
I used a lot of organic sounds and live instrumentation as well because aspects of waking life are often represented within non-realities, or decide the variables of our dreams.
Oh and real instruments sound good.
The Visuals are composed entirely from shots of landscapes, nature, time lapses, and self portrait.
Much like dream consciousness, most of the variables are extracted from waking life occurrences, and are then obscured by our dream consciousness, or in the case of these visuals, editing software.
Aside from the concept. Musically, "Mysterious Dream Island" should lend itself well to situations like dance partys, meditation, a bike ride, or as background music to half ignore while you clean your kitchen.
Just like our journey through various states of existence, the audio and visual material for "Mysterious Dream Island" has reoccurring themes that you might recognize throughout the experience.
I appreciate any and all feedback!!
