[rumori] dreams / sampling

I just woke up from a very odd dream...and it got me thinking...

dreams, in a way, are like samples of our everyday lives.

in this dream i heard many many collaging phrases from
both sides of my head, and i'm going to write them down
before i forget them:

"art is art, it is not music"
"music has nothing to do with words"
"it isn't music when it's not a whole"
"freedom is art"
"music has nothing to do with freedom"
"we sell music, we listen to art"
"everything is a part of something"
"everything that is not a part, is music"
"we buy things as a whole, we sell things in parts"
"art is not music"
"no, this is music...you can buy this"
"You cannot buy art"

There was more...but those are the only phrases I can remember.

I'm half tempted to hunt down spoken word samples that are
damned close to these, and eumulating the sound of this dream
as much as possible, and then making it available to all of you.
It was incredibly powerful to me....I just had to mention it here,
where I figured it might be appreciated.

I always felt dreams and sample-art went together almost hand-in-hand.
When I listen to copies of our radio show, I'm often reminded of the
feeling of falling asleep with my eyes open, and being unsure if I'm
awake or not....hearing noises that don't seem right, but things
LOOK normal. It makes me wish to attain that effect all the more
during the radio show. For those of you who have heard it, I hope
we pull that off to some extent for you.

I think we emulate dreams....making new art out of old.
