BBC ARTS NEW CREATIVES 2021

New Creatives, a nation-wide series of commissioning opportunities developed by BBC Arts and Arts Council England for emerging artists who work with audio or moving image. What We Do In Dreams  is a sound and music journey through dream narratives led by recordings of participants recounting their dream experiences and the relationship between that dream and their waking life.  The aim of the piece will be to transport the listener to a place where they can reflect on the nature of consciousness, reality and states of being.
