Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor are premiering their Dion McGregor movie somniloqiuies today at the prestigious Berlinale international film festival in … where was it again … oh yes, Berlin! This project—featuring an all-Dion soundtrack—has been in the works for some time and it’s very exciting to see it emerge into the world. A glimpse can be had through the link in the photo above, along with a nicely synthesized account of Dion McGregor’s sleeptalking history (download “additional information” at the bottom of the page) .
Thanks to David Robson for doing a splendid job sharing the story of legendary sleeptalker (and Torpor Vigil recording star) Dion McGregor!
Michael Preston Barr would have been 89 today. Here’s a fine version (by Blossom Dearie) of a wonderful song he wrote with Dion McGregor.

I love this little article from the company that promises you “a better night’s sleep”!
Thanks to The Equal Ground’s Ted Rogen for this very positive and thoughtful review.
