The Dream is a compilation featuring a selection of musicians from Poland, Norway and Iceland many of whom will be performing at the 2014 editions of the Unsound (Krakow), Insomnia (Tromso) and Iceland Airwaves (Reykjavik) festivals as part of the Luminous Bodies project.

Musicians contributing tracks to the CD include Hildur Gudnadottir with Skuli Sverrisson; Księżyc; Stine Janvin Motland with The Receptacles; Jenny Hval & Susanna; Robert Piernikowski; Ben Frost with Shahzad Ismaily and Greg Fox; TCF; We Will Fail; Natalia Martinez Ordonez; Kucharczyk; Eltron John; Le Petit Garcon; and Aabzu.

Excerpts from two special projects have also been included on the compilation, one from Double Vision, a collaboration between Atom™ & Robin Fox, and a section from Jed Kurzel’s soundtrack to the 2011 Australian film Snowtown. Both projects have been developed in collaboration with Unsound and the Adelaide Festival.

The Dream is compiled by Unsound’s artistic director Mat Schulz, and is coproduced by Unsound, Insomnia and Iceland Airwaves in co-operation with The Wire.
