In Topic: Any Musicians in the House?

((It's Silvia Callisto again...))

I'm learning how to play the dunbek. And I'm bass drum for gypsy musicians at my local renaissance faire.

In Topic: Your first computergame music memory

Computer game?

Alright, I got a tie for this one, because I'm not sure which was first: the menu theme for Baldur's Gate or the infamous theme of Tristram from Diablo.

...No, really.

As for the first video-game music memory I've got? Chemical Plant Zone, only because Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was the first video game I ever played and I kept on (and still keep on) dying there!

In Topic: Regular Dreaming...?

Except for point 2, that's precisely the problem I have. I suggest melatonin as a start, though even at 40 mg it didn't work for me. I take 25 mg of trazydone (and I know I misspelled that...) to get to sleep now, and although it doesn't kick in until three hours later, it gets me to REM sleep.

In Topic: Music and dreams

Sometimes music helps me get to sleep, too...but, unfortunately, I highly doubt that it can keep out the sound of my little brother playing on his computer and letting out this shriek/squeal/laugh sound.

With music being such a prominent part of my life, one would think that I'd have some sort of background music playing or something, but not necessarily the case. I've only had two dreams that I clearly remember that have anything to do with music.

The first involved saving some baby elephant right smack dab in the middle of a tropical storm or a hurricane of some sorts. I suddenly got an idea as to how to stop the storm. What resulted? Final Fantasy X's "Song of Prayer," lyrics and everything intact, pure a capella. And the storm calmed down as I sang the second verse/chorus/section (I honestly have no idea what to call "hasatekanae kutamae" other than something along those lines). I have this big grin on my face, a bunch of sentient animals are praising me for a job well done, and I wake up with a smile and a higher level of self-esteem than my usual "don't necessarily care bout anything"/laid-back attitude.

The second? More gaming. I'm talking with an older and slightly altered version of Xion from Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days when I start hearing the flute solo for "Dearly Beloved," closely followed by the rest of the main melody. I had been asking her if she was going to "come back" or not (I forget the events before that part), and I don't remember Xion's answer...unless the song was the answer; I dunno... I got teary eyed when I woke up, too, partially sad about not being able to talk with Xion more, partially happy I remembered hearing the song. Heck, I even used to keep my GBA on all night with Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories in it and kept at the main menu just to have something nice and pleasant to wake up to the next morning.

In Topic: What are you listening to right now?

"Forever Unity: Vocal Mix" - which I really want to get a hold of the MP3 of now that I've heard it, 'cause damn, TRiPPY, you've got composition and songwriting skills that make me very envious.
