The Dreams Behind the Music


Craig Webb

Prominent dream analyst/author/researcher Craig Webb will discuss the science, art, and experience of creative dreaming, and draw from thousands of hours of research behind his new book The Dreams Behind the Music to show how dream "downloads" led directly to dozens of Grammy wins, iTunes' most actively downloaded song, the most-covered song of all time, and many more huge hits, soundtracks, and other iconic artworks. He will present dream inspired successes by Sir McCartney, Sting, Bono, Beyoncé, Stevie Wonder, Drake, and numerous other top artists and entertainment industry executives, as well as describe creative dreaming techniques anyone can use to cultivate, harvest, interpret and enact dreams for artistic inspiration, performance skill mastery, crucial career choices, and many other pragmatic benefits.
