Dream Subject Unknown The 22nd installment in our Lyric Dream Project is a second dream recording drawn from Michael McDermit's Dreams Are What We Wake Up From (After a Raymond Carver quote) series. McDermit's project seeks to set a given dreamer's spoken account of their dream experience to music and sound effects that mimic or convey the feeling, mood, and tone of the dream. McDermit has stated that Dreams Are What We Wake Up From is an attempt to provide yet another point of entry into the dreaming subconscious. All of the music that accompanies the dreamer's account are original compositions rendered by McDermit after the account was recorded.
