Music Is The Dream

Music is the Dream is a large scale art sculpture proposed for Burning Man 2019. 

The sculpture is a visual exploration of sound and an expression of the connection between music and the individual. Music is the Dream is a formalized representation of the invisible gap between music and the listener. The sculpture embodies the feelings one receives when listening to music and is an expression of a mutual connection captured in an undulating arc. Some musicians will spend their entire life capturing emotion through music, Music Is The Dream aims to capture the emotion of music and formalize the emotion and power in music into a large scale sculpture. 

The undulating arc is around 5 meters wide by 3 and half meters high and was originally derived from studies surrounding two harmonic notes meeting. The sculpture will be fabricated from metal and the voronoi pattern running along the arc is a reflection of the dry desert.

 The idea behind the sculpture is really strengthened by an inspiring talk from Rachel Claudio who speaks about translating feeling into sound. Music is a dream aims to capture this feeling and translate it into a large scale art piece. 

"You know what music is? A little reminder that there's something else besides us in this universe; harmonic connection between all living being, everywhere, even the stars.                    - Robin Wiliams

 Team 

We are small group from Sydney and Melbourne, Australia with dynamic skills and interests. While some of us have collaborated on projects in the past, the MITD team is a first - taking on a challenge of scale and complexity. Project Lead - Lachlan McLean Designers - Samuel Williams & Eloise Sardelic Project manager - Mitch McLean carpenter- Odhran O'Reilly Lighting specialists -  Jackson Balakas

“Having the right team makes everything come together with joy and ease. Getting art to the playa takes a lot of time, energy and passion.” – Josh Haywood, Hayam Sun Temple (2014)

Risks and Challenges 

 It is our first time bringing art to the Playa and our first international sculpture to date which is super exciting and challenging in every aspect.  Sadly, We have not received any funding from Burning Man although could not pass up the opportunity when invited to self fund the project through the HELP OF YOU!  

Together with a skilled team of engineers and fabricators located in the United States  we hope to bring the proposed large scale sculpture to life for the enjoyment of Black Rock Citizens.  

The taking of something in the inner world, silent, formless and finding a way to convert it into a shareable and perceptible sonic language via rhythms, harmony, lyrics. I call it translation. - Rachel Claudio
