Dreamtime

Dreamtime - Lauri Turjansalo's musical journey started in the late 90s. After years of experimenting music in a limited tracker environment it was time to move onto more dynamic sound - Dreamtime project was launched in 2003. The project focuses solely in spacesynth music with an idea of emphasizing dreamy textures while keeping catchy melodic drive of spacesynth running strong. The first track released under this pseudonym was called "Purple Twilight" which received a lot of positive feedback. Later the music got shaped and developed step by step. In 2005 "Before the Dawn" won the music contest of Spacesynth.de website and was later released on CD by Audioenergy. New tracks have been regularly released as free downloads as well as on compilation cd's.
Dreamtime music is put together in digital environment and aided by analog sound sources. Love for 80s polysynth sounds is audible in most of the tracks but he keeps himself constantly open for new ideas. The music is influenced by classic acts but also new wave space artists as well as other electronic music genres. Dreamtime's stylistic background lies in demoscene music rather than italo. There has been a couple of times when he has gone briefly back to that crunchy sounding world of 8bit goodness and released the results. Themes and inspirations for new compositions come from outer space and inner space, past and the future, and anything with strong visual aspect from films to art.

Outside of Dreamtime discodelia Lauri writes music in other electronic styles and does sound for video and multimedia productions.

Lauri is also much involved with the Spacesynth.net website. Its goal is to be your go-to space bar, a place where artists and fans can meet, discuss, share music and ideas. The admin team has been running the website since 2005 and it has become a home for many space maniacs across the globe.

In 2007 Lauri was contacted by Space Sound Records asking to make a remix for the Space Project cd. Label's enthusiastic ideas of taking the genre further convinced him. Future collaboration was soon decided.
