The music of the group resides in the area between dusk and dawn of our consciousness and draws from half-remembered recollections of things past. Images of fantasy and reality intermingle in memories of carnivals, side shows and fairgrounds. Nostalgia is felt for imagined events.
The name Dream Machine comes from a rotating cylindrical object co-invented by Ian Sommerville and artist, author Brion Gysin. Gysin maintained that sitting in front of the machine with one's eyes closed would put one in a dream-like state.
