A special gift – just for me alone – at a time when that feels so wonderful!Audience Member
“As dreams are made” is Artistic Director David Pay‘s very personal response to the global pandemic. This special event is returning for a limited run at the 10th Modulus Festival and features musicians from The Tempest Project Company.
Inspired by the magic of musicians in live performance, this 15-minute production was created specifically for one audience member and one performer to connect safely through music that brings us together. It’s an immersive event that is at once intimate and comforting, inventive and dreamlike.
“As dreams are made” was also inspired by 1:1 CONCERTS, short, in-person encounters between one listener and one musician. Opening each encounter with eye contact and a kind, welcoming mutual gaze creates an intimate, very personal 1:1 concert experience with the feeling of “proximity from a distance.”
This brief, socially distanced live performance is part of Music on Main “The Tempest Project,” a full-length immersive work that will premiere in 2024.
Music on Main’s “As dreams are made” has been generously supported by the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA).
“As dreams are made” is an element of “The Tempest Project”, which will premiere in 2024. Royal Bank of Canada is this project’s Founding Partner.
“As dreams are made” and Music on Main’s research for “The Tempest Project” are possible because of support from BC Arts Council’s Enhanced Capacity project funding, and donors like you.

“As dreams are made” was inspired in part by 1:1 CONCERTS, and Music on Main thanks the team of 1:1 CONCERTS GbR – flutist Stephanie Winker, scenographer Franziska Ritter and cultural mediator Christian Siegmund – for their warm-hearted advice.
“As dreams are made” is specifically designed for just one audience member to be immersed in an intimate performance. There’s only one audience seat inside the the ANNEX, and all of the lighting and sound is designed especially for that one seat. If you would like to book with other people in your bubble, we recommend booking performances 30 minutes apart.Q: Will I hear one or three musicians?
A: You will hear one musician at a performance.
When you attend your 15-minute performance of “As dreams are made,” you will hear only one musician. There are four musicians playing the 76 performances between Nov 5-10, and they play a specially chosen piece for you.
Q: Can I choose which musician I’ll hear?
A: No. The element of musical surprise is an important aspect of “As dreams are made.”
Choose the date and time that works best for your schedule. No matter what musician you hear, you’ll have an experience that one audience member says will leave you with “complete presence inside the unutterable beauty of the music.”
Q: Can you tell me more about the health protocols at the event?
A: Of course! At Music on Main, our care for your health and well being is an extension of our love for audiences and artists.
