Biografia

Long Island, Nova Iorque, Estados Unidos (1985 – presente)

Dream Theater é uma banda de originária de Long Island, Nova Iorque, Estados Unidos e formada em 1985 por John Myung, Mike Portnoy e John Petrucci, enquanto frequentavam o curso de Música da Universidade de Berklee, em Boston, Massachusetts.

Antes de se chamar “Dream Theater”, eram conhecidos por “Majesty”. Este nome surgiu durante um concerto do Rush, em sua turnê do álbum “Power Windows”. John Petrucci, John Myung e Mike Portnoy dormiram na rua para comprar ingressos e assistir ao espetáculo, até que, ao ouvir a canção “Bastille Day” (do álbum Caress of Steel), surgiu o comentário de que aquela música era ‘majestosa’, ficando assim o nome.

O trio foi em busca de mais membros para a banda. John Petrucci convidou o colega de escola Kevin Moore para o posto de tecladista do grupo. Em seguida, outro amigo de infância do guitarrista, Chris Collins, foi recrutado como vocalista, após os membros da banda ouvirem-no cantar um cover da música “Queen of the Reich”, do Queensrÿche.

Durante os primeiros meses de 1986, realizaram diversos concertos nas redondezas da cidade de Nova Iorque. Lançaram sua primeira demo com seis músicas, uma amostra de seu com referências da música clássica, que influenciou muitas bandas posteriormente. Trata-se do disco “The Majesty Demos”, cujas mil primeiras cópias foram vendidas em questão de seis meses, tornando a banda relativamente popular no cenário musical novaiorquino.

    I respect the pretension for reach objectivity (concept which is inter-subjective and co-created in a social debate), as an abstract and optimal goal. BUT totally different is pretend that YOUR reality; your concrete, limited and relative perception of something (in this case, art) it's part of that desired objectivity. And I repeat, in the very moment that you insult, prejudge or fall into logical fallacies you lose -automatically- the "objectivity" in the discussion about objectivity.

    You're insulting yourself in the act of throwing "ad hominem fallacies" pretending that are arguments. You can believe in fairytales, but if you want to convince others to believe that you have to give reasons (not fallacies include): a "scientific standard" if you wanna call it, that's how some social interactions work: debates and convincement. My request for studies was rhetorical, of course.

    As expected from a Dream Theater fan. Because self awareness and personal experience are sheeps that gotta be sacrificed on the altar of scientific dogma for your reason to bloom. Wait for those studies for sure.

    You're giving me the reason. Everything you mention are personal and subjective reactions, there is not a transcendental, absolute or immanent meaning on it. "it's the music own universe that affects your inner self": no, it's all in your mind so prove nothing. About those examples, I want empirical and scientific studies that rule out other simpler explanations. I can find an absolute and perpetual idea on, for example, philosophy of ethics; logic; and laws of nature (I'm following Kant in this tripartite) but you kan't (lol) on art until you prove it scientifically, aesthetically and/or philosophically.

    “Music directly imitates the passions or states of the soul…when one listens to music that imitates a certain passion, he becomes imbued with the same passion; and if over a long time he habitually listens to music that rouses ignoble passions, his whole character will be shaped to an ignoble form.” [Aristotle] --- There are examples all around the globe like people experiencing mutual telepathy after attending at a Stockhausen concert or feeling a sense of unconditional empathy after being exposed to John Coltrane's paradoxal dissonance. Listen solely to Morton Feldman's Patterns in a Chromatic Field for an entire month, you'll see that it does affect not only your focus capacity, but also your thinking pattern in your daily life. Music is just another way to express ideas, like literature or art in general. Be it basic emotions or metaphysical phenomenas depends on the skill and amount of self implication of the composer into his work. This is what we call "substance".

    [what you call "substance" is just when a particular music that you listen in a particular moment resonates with some of your significant memories or personal experiences. There's no such thing as an underlying and transcendent sense in music waiting to be unraveled by some geniuses-of-artistic-and-spiritual-perception.] What a big pile of bullshit. People who project their subjectivity into their listening experience are just one of many examples of lazy listening. To be able to appreciate an artwork in full objectivity recquires practice and self dedication. Music is a more metaphysical and esoteric practice than you claim it to be. Believe in fairy tales or not, when you listen to a composition it's the music own universe that affects your inner self, and not the other way around.

    By the way, the correct tag for SFAM is Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory, according to both musicbrainz and the official site.

    I started with Metropolis pt. 2 when I was 14, and it more or less instantly blew me away. Awake took almost a year to get into. So I would suggest Metropolis or I&W for a start.

    I wasn't hoping for anything in special, just another enjoyable dream theater album, I got complete bullshit instead.

    I disagree, start with Images and Words or Awake.

    @MosherSam13, for me, every album is a good start. At least, try Metropolis Part 2: Scenes from a Memory, or A Changing of Seasons.

    Never properly listened to these, what album do people recommend I start with?

  • nicolasbj

    vv The Looking Glass is a tribute to Rush's Limelight and Images and Words is the more Rush-oriented album by Dream Theater

    V Am I the only one who felt like The Looking Glass felt a bit...Images and Words-like? Or is it my imagination?
