Dustin Wong‘s stretch as the guitarist for the now-retired art rock band Ponytail may have ended, but he’s got some things in the works. In addition to the release of his second album, Dreams Say, View, Create, Shadow Leads, on February 21 for Thrill Jockey, Wong has decided to soundtrack dreams.
In Wong’s Say Your Dream, Create A Sound project, people can tell Wong about a dream that was noteworthy by recording a narration to his SoundCloud page or describing it in a written message sent to his page. Wong will then create original pieces of music inspired by each of the dreams in all their surreal-kinda-vague-what-does-it-all-mean glory.
Selections of the recordings will be posted to Wong’s SoundCloud page during the week his new album is released, beginning on February 20.
Below, watch the video for the first single off of Dreams Say, View, Create, Shadow Leads, “Diagonally Talking Echo.”
