Dreaming for Real
Dreaming For Real originated in music that Alby dreamt while asleep, then recorded after waking. Most of this album was composed in the quiet of the late night and early morning hours, before the memory of these musical dreams could fade. The music of 'Dreaming For Real' is at once romantic, meditative, and spiritual. Alby used his extensive collection of synthesizers and samplers to create lush musical tone poems that capture the otherworldly sounds of the dreamstate. Dreaming For Real was a #1 Charting Album on the NAV Top 100 Radio Airwaves, and remained in the top 10 for 5 months. It was selected by Delta and Singapore Airlines for their inflight programming. Dreaming For Real has also received extensive airplay on Music Choice, the digital cable music service. Selections from reviews of Dreaming For Real: 'Dreaming For Real is one of those special debut recordings that blew me away when I first dropped the virtual needle onto the virtual first groove...Dreaming For Real gets my highest recommendations. It is beautiful beyond my ability to describe it. It sparkles, dances, flits, and walks the darkened corridors of your mind during the deepest part of the night. Dreaming For Real is for real, all right. Sweet dreams are assured with this one.' Bill Binkelman, Wind & Wire 'Great and sweet melodies...' V. Arenas, Amazing Sounds 'With dreams the likes of which Mister Potts weaves, who would ever want to wake up?' Fred Puhan, Music for a New Age.
