The Dreamachine (or Dream Machine) is a stroboscopic flicker device that produces visual stimuli. Artist Brion Gysin and William S. Burroughs' "systems adviser" Ian Sommerville created the Dreamachine after reading William Grey Walter's book, The Living Brain. In its original form, a Dreamachine is made from a cylinder with slits cut in the sides. The cylinder is placed on a record turntable and rotated at 78 or 45 revolutions per minute
Its British chart success may be due to the presence of Dame Evelyn Glennie in the 2014 percussion concerto Dreamachine; Glennie is not quite the presence on recordings that she was in her RCA heyday, but manifestly from the evidence here she has not lost a step at all. Daugherty, not typically known as a composer of virtuoso music hitherto, writes splendid parts for all three soloists in these concertos, but Glennie's is breathtaking. Sample the large dynamic range of its third movement, Electric Eel, inspired by a German painting reproduced in the graphics; the number of percussionists.
