“Dream Chatter is a live recording session and performative installation. The aim is to create a safe and comfortable environment for an exploration of the subconscious layer to happen. There will be open microphones and instruments/ ways for people to contribute. Specifically visitors sharing their dreams or stories of their relationship to their dream life. There are also several recordings from previous Dream Chatter sessions that will be layered creating an amorphous and ever changing audio scape. The whole night will be audio recorded with the potential for the material to be released at a later date.

The Art Terrarium is the perfect space for this echoey and enchanting event. Please consider the fact that January 1st is a full moon this year. Lets celebrate a new beginning of a new year together. Collaborators welcome! email Jon at for more information on how you can contribute or bring materials to the event to read from or a story to share. Dream Chatter is an oral history project and a sequence of completely improvised layers and sonic fields. come, add your voice, play an instrument, have a conversation in the space and you will be adding to the atmosphere that is Dream Chatter.”
