THE GH0STWR1TERS - REM0TE DRE4M1NG (1986)

This marvelous new-age / minimal outing by C. Cohen and J. Cain (not to mention the perfection of the duo's band name and album title) provides the introduction and framework for today's grouping of posts: music for fantastic /sci-fi literature.

Here OWOD looks at the cross-genre traces of "remote dreaming" that span across and through not just genre, but media themselves. The law of genre is one of contamination, impurity, as Mr. Derrida once envisioned it. The ideological frameworks that smudge- and are smudged by- our dreams, it would seem, follow suit. As do their representations.

Again, dream dreaming...
