Dream Hop - The Official Guide to the Audio-Visual Experience
Written by:
Emily Plazek

Before you watch Andrew Chris's long-awaited movie/album experience "Dream Hop", here are all the secrets to hunt down! Straight from the creator's mouth:

Dream Hop - Andrew Chris
Color Scheme Cross

Color scheme cross

[AZTEC GOLD] = surplus, actualization, enjoyment, infrastructure, setup, preexisting conditions

[PURPLE] = UNCONSCIOUS MIND = the hidden made unhidden, the piecing together, ethereal

[SKY BLUE] = CONSCIOUS MIND = the conscious reaction, decisions, stream of consciousness

[NUDE] = facade, mask, exterior, patched up, hiding

[TURQUOISE] = brand, band, plan, stand

[TEAL] = the fall, test, struggle, event

Dream Hop is 1 nights worth of dreaming within my brain.

The 25 tracks represent the 25 years that Agent Dale Cooper is stuck in the Red Room.
Many images & sounds come from my actual dreams.

Lurker
“The Lurker, Snide, Monster, Demon, Shadow, Entity, Manifestation”

Mostly inhabits my room, just like me (hint hint).
Operates via energy.
The flickering of the lights travels slowly travels across my apt & approaches my room slowly until it reaches me.
The Asian porcelain doll on my TV is looking at the lurker. Or at least I get a strange feeling that he sees something when my head is turned. Which makes me paranoid.
At first, mostly tortures me (messes with the closet doors to fuck with me then trips me).

Then we see an almost opposite looking version of me approach in the window.

Is the lurker my own subconscious fears manifesting in scenarios my brain made up while dreaming to overcome those mental flaws?
Probably.

Is the existence of the lurker simply a construction of paranoia from what the porcelain doll made me creeped out about?
Probably.

Control
At one point, I realize that I’m dreaming.

I begin changing my environment. Colors, pasting logos, changing the size of the moon, etc.
I also find portals & learn how to use them (just like Twin Peaks)
I then continue to HOP betwixt DREAMS. (aka “dream hop”)
Kinda like Spongebob Inception.

Recurring
Recurring dreams amirite?

The shadow obviously recurs literally 24/7.
The quote about “nightmares following you like a shadow forever” is shown twice.
The Warhol verse is used again on Basquiat. Same content, different styles. This is my brain trying out new combinations of influence.


More recurring specifics:

Rivers - flow of thought/time

Giant Moons - subconscious presence, influencing the world

Wood - the afterlife (my log has something to tell you // Josie)

Bridges - bridging thoughts together to form grander conclusions

Brick - the building blocks of my day that I use to form dreams

Tisch - face value; he helped film so I wanted to show him too

  deeper; he was also dream hopping that night

Terror

A lot of the visuals are also to give the audience a sense of terror.
These images don’t spook me. But they probably spook you.

I’ve confronted the depths, it’s time you do as well.


Film the Villlage

This movie was 90% filmed in South Side, Pittsburgh.
60% was within ½ mile from my house.

You inhabit your environment, & your environment inhabits you.

Is there so much of this location in my dreams because that’s where I spend most of my waking experience?
Mos def.

Misc. Fun Facts

All the quotes are by filmmakers, authors, painters, characters in movies.

My favorite part of the movie is when I Jedi Force pick up a microphone.

Now you're ready.

Watch Dream Hop, the movie, here.

And listen to Dream Hop, the album, everywhere you listen to music, like Spotify.
