Re: Weird Dream(s)
I was at a fair or something in a small local town but as is often the case in dreams, it turned out it was actually Paris. There was a stand with a person (DJ?) where you could choose a sort of game by pushing one of several buttons. I took one that was called "fight the synthesizer" or something very similar.
I got a microphone and my voice was transformed by some sort of delay, pitch adjustment, distortion and other effects into a piece of music that evolved as I sang the notes. It sounded really amazing, but I can't remember it exactly. The goal seemed to be to get the timing right and achieve a sort of resonance effect with the beat. It was different from karaoke in that you created your own song from scratch, without a template.
What was more weird was that with that resonance effect, I started to swing around in circles on a rope or line which was also the microphone cord. When I really got the beat going, I was maybe 10-15 meters off the ground, holding on to the microphone and going around fast in circles with a similar radius. It was awesome and nonsense at the same time.
After I woke up, I was thinking about building something like this, maybe minus the carousel part.
