Isn't it supposed to be dream, not draem?
The 'a' and 'e' are intentionally
reversed - it's the ancient Celtic version of dream.
I accidentally typed www.dreamgate.com
instead of www.draemgate.com and
it popped up an entirely different web site.
Unfortunately, this is very common mistake
whilst typing the URL. Please note that Draemgate is in no way
associated with DreamGate.
The voice in the Who We Are section sounds
strange... Who or what is it???
It was created using speech synthesis. (In
other words, it's computer generated and not a real human voice.)
You're using the Quake font, right? (Quake is
a video game by id Software.)
This is a common misunderstanding, please note the differences below:
Where did the Draemgate logo come from?
It is an
enhanced version of a crop circle photograph. The color was
enhanced, and a few special effects were applied, otherwise the design
is left intact.
Where did all of these other strange symbols come from?? (Such as on the
main page and on the navigation bar at the
bottom of this page.)
Most of the symbols used on this web site
are of crop circles.
When will I be able to purchase the Twilight
March 25th, 2000 was the original official release
date. However, the release of Twilight was delayed because of technical
difficulties at the reproduction plant. It is now available for purchase! You can find
directions for purchasing the CD in the merchandise
What kinds of instruments do you guys play?
We do not use the usual types of musical instruments. The
CD was composed using a computer process to convert images
into audible sound. Keep in mind that we create experimental soundscapes, not traditional music.
What is this image-to-sound conversion and how does it work??
Isn't it the same as MetaSynth?
The image-to-sound conversion
process used for the Twilight album is not to be confused with a
computer program called MetaSynth. MetaSynth uses pixel
information in an image to represent volume/pitch/sustain/duration/etc.
of a pre-existing sound that you've specified. In other words, it uses
an image to determine how to play a sound. Our method is
entirely different in that it uses an image to create a unique
If the picture is full
of completely random colors, then the converted sound will be nothing
more than static. Deep space images typically have a very smooth and
However, what really matters
is the end result; I invite you to listen to samples of the Twilight
CD which can be found in the downloads
section. Over a hundred images were used of crop circles, deep space
nebulae, and other various designs and natural formations..
