      Music in Lucid Dreams

      I saw the Beatles live in a dream about 15 years ago, and I saw Jefferson Airplane live in a lucid dream a little while later. I wrote about the Jefferson Airplane experience in a post here in 2004. Those are two of the best concerts I have ever been to. They were mind-blowing. However, that has not happened much. I am going to try to master the creation of music in my lucid dreams and make it happen multiple times a week. I am looking to see what other people have experienced with it. Have you ever been to a great concert or heard a song that sounded angelic in a dream? Have you made it happen in a lucid dream? What was it like?

      The major kryptonite to my lucid dreaming has been marijuana. As I discussed here a lot last decade, I have pothead tendencies, and that wrecks lucid dreaming ability. It is always during my sobriety periods that last months when I have good streaks of lucid dreaming. Part of the reason for my bad habit is what marijuana used to do but no longer does. It made music sound super spiritual and aesthetically orgasmic. I am a music fanatic as it is, but there was an angelic factor that marijuana used to add to it, especially when I didn't use often. If I could achieve an ever greater level of that in lucid dreams on a consistent basis, I might be able to convince myself that marijuana no longer has a place in my life. I would love to get there, and I plan to. That is part of the reason I am looking into expanding the dream music experience and looking for other people's views and ideas. The other part is just that it is one of the greatest experiences there is, in my experience.

      Hey UM!! It's been a minute!!

      I can't think of any lucid music experiences, but music plays a very important role in my dream life. I'll often get stuck on a particular song for a few days, have it running through my head (I think even when awake, but it's subdued and less noticeable then). Then it will be there in my dreams, often just a particular part of the song, playing over and over and sounding really excellent. Heavenly as you said.

      Then of course there are those dreams, and some of these are lucid now that I think about it, I believe always or mostly when I take Galantamine and possibly influenced by a few other supplements (5htp I think especially) where I'm hearing either music or people talking or some kind of incessant noise that's really annoying and I can't make it stop. I'll keep trying to find the radio and switch it off, unplug it, smash it, and still the music drones on.

      And then there's the falling asleep with the (real) music playing. This one can be different from time to time - I suspect it depends on your state. Possibly it's if you're entering REM already as you're drifting off (which happens if you're sleep deprived) that it starts to become the most unearthly beautiful thing you can imagine. It becomes more than just sound or music - it seems to pervade your entire being and lift you up spiritually into heaven. It also seems to last forever. I start to feel like I've been hearing the same song for hours.

      I can chime in on this. Music in lucid dreams is absolutely fascinating. The mind can create absolutely astonishing music on the spot. New versions of songs you know, or songs no one has heard before. It is so impressive some times it blows my mind.

      One of my favourite things is to leave the body behind and let the music take full control of the dream. Some times it turns into a "camera lucid dream" where I am witnessing some sort of music video. Other times the dream world fades completely and is replaced by a visualizer that moves with the music.

      I also enjoy making music in lucid dreams, playing an instrument is really interesting. I have tried to bring the music back to the real world and record it upon waking, but it seems a bit difficult.

      I don't know if you talk to the "subconscious" during LDs. But if you make it clear that you are aware of the fact that your ego is not the only force at play in the dream, asking the dream for some music should not be a problem.

      I think I will have to add creating music to the list of things I want to try lucid!

      I have never made music in a lucid dream, but I've had several dreams which feature really good music, occasionally from performances; I've had several dreams of one person playing guitar, probably mostly because I have a friend who used to play relaxing guitar music for me. However, most of the time memorable music in my dreams comes from when the dream feels similar to a movie: I might hear suspenseful music during a suspenseful part, for example. This is all rare though, usually I don't recall any music from my dreams.

      Finally, I sometimes hear music that sounds incredible, but I can't remember quite how it goes when I wake up. That can really bug me.

      One dream was dominated by trying to remember "What band did the song Black Hole Sun?"

      Much of the dream took place at an outdoor environment next to a concert venue where they were playing (though it was actually indoors, like inside a concrete parking garage). It seems like I kept hearing the song throughout, or parts of it, and I asked a room full of people if they knew the band's name. Nobody did, but they tried to think of it for me, after intially looking at me like I'm a lunatic. I kept trying but couldn't remember the name (it's Soundgarden), but I did remember the singer's name (though I got it wrong). I thought it was Dave Navarro (that's actually the guitarist for Jane's Addiction) Then toward the end I was walking, still apparently outside of the concert, when the person in question (who's name I thought was Dave Navarro but was actually Chris Cornell) was standing there outside of his own concert in the crowd and talked to me. He was my neighbor or something, and he apologized for not answering my question earlier (about who he was!) because he was inside playing at the time lol. I thought it was interesting how the whole dream was permeated by the idea of 'who did this song?', and I kept trying to hard to think of him, and he showed up as well.

      Which now that I think of it ties in with another thread I just posted on, about thinking in dreams. Guess I need to cross-post this there as well.

      i played air-guitar once while lucid. just like them 2 stoners from bill & teds excellent adventure! i was very supprised it worked. i stood there thinking how cool is this shit!
      sometime down the road. i got more confidence in my dream skills. i created a whole new type of music. it is a mix between classical music. Beethoven Mozart that sorta shit.
      and the other half of the mix. heavey metal. in reality. i cant play any type of instrument. i wouldnt know how to at all. i am glade i produced some music though. felt easy.
      it was more my heart which struck the notes then my will.

      This reminds me of one of the tasks of the month that I suggested was to Create an opus (or any piece of music) for the last month task.
