Songwriter Dion McGregor became famous in the 1960s for narrating his dreams in his sleep. His flatmate recorded him doing so.
In Somniloquies, Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel overcome the boundaries between inner dreamscapes and human bodies by compiling, editing, and re-weaving these oneiric and surreal tales into a new world that, through their sonic manipulation of the original tapes, accentuates both the dreams and the then incidental sounds of ‘60s New York City street life. And for our eyes? We see a lulled drift across human bodies, flowing, hazy and proximate — that like the audio blurs interiority and exteriority, but also presages Castaing-Taylor and Paravel’s approach for Caniba.
