Description

"Everybody dreams. Everybody travels.  This is a story of Dreams mixed with Reality."

Following sell out performances at London’s National Film Theatre and The Turbine Hall of The Tate Modern and a variety of International film festivals The Real Tuesday Weld were commissioned by the British Film Institute to record an alternative soundtrack to Hans Richter’s 1948 surrealist cult classic "Dreams That Money Can Buy."

Joe, a young man down on his luck, discovers he has the power to create dreams, and sets up a business selling them to others.  The 'dreams' he gives to his clients are the creations of Max Ernst, Fernand Leger, Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Alexander Calder and Richter himself, and the result is by turns playful, hypnotic, satirical, charming and nightmarish.  

The film’s wonderfully strange Jungian dream sequences are magically re-scored and re-interpreted by the band with guest stars Brazilian sonic collagist Cibelle and English alchemist David Piper.
