    Melody Fragments

    I had a couple dreams with music in them last night, and was able to transcribe some of it. I had forgotten almost all of the dreams themselves by the time I'd finished, but here's what I have:

    And, from a later awakening:

    Couple interesting things about these: first, that they're both in D major, which is the scale I've been practicing speedwork on for the past three weeks or so. I don't have perfect pitch, so this suggests some kind of residual pitch memory at work.

    Also, they both seem familiar, particularly the second. I want to say it's from a rock song? But it's hard to tell whether music in dreams only seems familiar the way things in general seem familiar in dreams or because I've actually heard it before.

      Amazing that you were able to transcribe those from dreams! Do your dreams often have music in them? Don't think mine do very often, but wish they did.

      Hi Zthread,

      I’d say I have dreams with music in them pretty often, but I can only manage to transcribe any if I wake up directly from hearing it. If you want to hear more of it in dreams, I guess it wouldn’t hurt to make a point of keeping an ear out for it – or for sounds in general, even. It seems like we’re normally so focused on sight we forget about our other senses. But even hypnagogic imagery can be auditory so if you're fortunate enough to sleep in a less noisy environment than me, I'd say that's a good time to try to focus on it.

      Good point! Will focus on sounds more. Maybe it will make me hear more things in dreams.
