The dreams trilogy by Ballpen

Album Description

Released:October 11th, 2010

This music is based on how my dreams have been working throughout the years.
The thing I like about dreams is that there are no schemes, no shames, no recipes and everything can  happily or strangely  cohabit with everything else.
The way the songs are composed are similar to what I’ve expereinced in my dream so far. Like the hospital  in my hometown  turned upside down and placed in the middle of a race circuit, or me riding a turtle  dressed up like Darth Vader, chasing my    auntie along the dock of an unknown port in Malaysia. And other  billions of strange and funny combinations of the puzzle-  pieces of my life.
And everybody’s life I suppose.
Some of this dreams are made in a song form, some others are built like a possible dream would develop.  Some vocal parts  sound like somebody that’s sleep talking and the music is supposed to be what’s  sonically going on in his/her head or you can  hear that the music melts when somebody is falling asleep.  And if you listen at a reasonable low volume you can still hear the  music and what’s going on in the room  next to yours at the same time.
It’s very interesting. I swear.
Apart from this, I also think that this music is good for your heart.
And, by the way, this album has been recorded inside a cardboard box.

sooo good, just listened to everything here after being stunned by "Anne Lisa goes to bed" in the Recently Added Feed. 'dreamy' is the word...ethereal...and the percussion seems to have a melody

where are the rest of the tracks??

Sounds really well! Real drums combined with some electronic sounding sounds. I like the cymbals, and the soft-spoken bells in the opening track.. Agreed with Jason about the melodic percussion.
