Dreamchild can customarily be found in the depths of Moonpool Studios, creating la musique macabre du Grand Guignol for this century's 'teens' era. Allow us to lure you, siren-like, into this realm of the music of ethereal nightmares and fever dreams.
Acclaimed in both national and international press, Dreamchild offers a dark ambience with swirling and orchestral guitar soundscapes; ethereal, yet powerful & disturbing vocals, and otherworldly wire-strung harp.
Frank and Cheryl of Dreamchild are well known as composers and musicians in the Boston area. They also known for the intensity of their theatrical and over-the-top live performances, utilizing looping/sampling devices, vocal techniques (from ethnic ululation and flamenco flourish to operatic power), and unusual instrumentation to dramatically recreate their songs with nothing pre-recorded – everything is live and in the moment.
Dreamchild’s original compositions include insane improvised vocal pieces, dark ambient and exotic soundscapes, delicate and eerie reveries, and theatrical and dramatic creations, inspired by historic or mythic themes. As for cover songs, they include: the band’s idiomatic and distinctive versions of Peter Gabriel’s “Here Comes the Flood” and Bauhaus’ iconic“Bella Lugosi’s Dead”; a dark tango from the Julie Taymor film Frida (sung in Spanish) - and even two well-beloved opera arias (one by Bizet, one by Saint-Saëns), with Cheryl singing both Mezzo-Soprano and Tenor roles in French, while Frank magically fashions lush orchestrations on VG-8 and VG-99 guitar. A multi-vocal, moody arrangement of a Tom Waits song and a darkly dramatic bit of the blues (originally sung by Bessie Smith) are both forthcoming in future releases...
The trip you will take with Dreamchild is possibly harrowing, often enthralling, always wildly dramatic, and amply daubed with gore. Meet murderous & dangerous women, intoning seductive and sinister soliloquies. Experience unbridled madness, wistful melancholy, and impassioned, operatic decadence...all awash in mesmeric, rhythmic and scintillating soundscapes.
