The bridge embodies connection between Heaven and Earth, the union of a man and a deity. It is a form of a bond between different points of sacred space. The bridge has always meant a transition from one state to another, a change or a desire for a change. Earth and Heaven were once connected by a bridge (or a tree, or a vine), and thanks to this people could easily communicate with gods, because there was no death. Since then the connection between Earth and Heaven has been lost, so you can only cross the bridge as a “spirit”. For that you have to either die, or to enter a trance state. This transition is rather hard to achieve, as it is fraught with dangerous obstacles and not all of the souls are capable of overcoming it.

Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part IV Partial awakening. The dream is real as long as you remember it. With every second our present inevitably turns into the past and we can’t put the clock back. The main proofs of the existence of this past are our memories. Events that occurred five or ten years ago remain in our memory in a form of sketchy scenes, which contain only the most vivid, sharp and unusual changes in the daily routine. When you cogitate over the past, you watch someone else’s life from the sidelines. But what if some dreams leave not less lively memories about visual, tactual, and taste sensations? If we were to evaluate the reality of the past by the fact of having memories of these sensations, then dreams that were not forgotten in the morning would arguably be just as real.
The third single from our debut record Sleep. Streaming link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEqOB8ZFF-4 Full album is already available here: https://mistersirband.bandcamp.com/album/sleep Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part III REM sleep, rapid eye movement stage. We don’t own anything but our inner world. A dream is the only place where everything is under your control. The law of conservation of energy and substance no longer applies here: you can create any object you like out of thin air, you can bend space at any degree of freedom, you can fly, teleport, rush with the speed of light without fearing experiencing hundreds of g. The most interesting part is how our consciousness simulates feelings we’ve never experienced in real life. If during a lucid dream you jump out of a window, first you experience a normal falling (as you should in real life). But just few inches from the ground the falling gradually slows down. When you hit the asphalt, it turns into a jelly, which slowly absorbs you and kicks you out of the current level of sleep. Having all of these limitless possibilities one can't help but question the necessity of this “real” world. Why do we need it, if we have a much more pliable inner world where the only masters are we ourselves? The reality is that in this “real” world we don’t own any material things. In a blink of an eye we can lose everything we consider belonging to us “by right”.
The second single from our debut record Sleep. Streaming link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5w030Fjwsc Full album is already available here: https://mistersirband.bandcamp.com/album/sleep Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part II Light sleep, the second stage of NREM sleep. What would life be like if we wouldn’t have to sleep? Certainly, we would have missed a ton of fascinating dreams. But we would have been able to achieve such great heights without drifting off every day even for couple of hours. Alfred Herpin knew it firsthand. This man had a rare case of insomnia, which allowed him not to sleep at all and this in no way reflected on his health. At some point of his life he claimed that he had been constantly awake for at least 10 years in a row. The rest of the more than 6 billion people will never experience this state. Because even just a day of insomnia results in problems with health for all of us. Within a few sleepless days human consciousness loses its clarity, causing an overwhelming desire to fall asleep with occasional “collapses” into a borderline state with confusional consciousness. This method of moral coercion is used during interrogations and is considered to be a refined torture.
The song is available for streaming here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKraeJ2olvg Memoirs of a Lucid Dreaming Practitioner. Part I Sleep onset, the first stage of NREM sleep. One of the most unusual experiences at this stage is the maintaining of consciousness during the transition from waking state to dormant state. Seconds after hypnic jerks, which serve as a signal from the motor part of the nervous system about somewhat maintaining a control over the body, comes the paralysis, and the consciousness disconnects from reality, switching off to “sleep mode.” But if you keep the consciousness after the jerk, you can witness the process of transition to sleep “with your own eyes”. With your own mind, to be more accurate, because by virtue of the inevitable paralysis you won’t even be able to open your eyelids. Right after the paralysis you might even get soreness in the head and your whole body. It seems as if your brain gets suddenly imposed to a swelling current for 5-10 seconds at first and then to a decreasing one. We shall call each period of such increases and decreases in soreness “an impulse.” On the morrow of two or three impulses painful sensations pass off and the consciousness finally enters a dream relieved. However, in the middle of every impulse a drowsy person, whilst being helpless and paralyzed, gets anxious and in a cold sweat. Modern medicine insures that all of these fears are groundless, and sleep paralysis is harmless. But nevertheless you wonder every time: “What if I don’t wake up in the morning?”
These words and the following song became very famous in the winter of 2010 in Tomsk. But that days it was a very raw demo with a low quality. This time we finally have everything to record it nice with a help from Katia Key, who filmed a video. So, we're presenting to you a real hit: the song that had been played on every party and a several times on every gig. P.S. If this post will reach at least 20 likes I'll share with you a 2011's acoustic live version of this. And I bet you won't believe that it's played by the same person http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaI3Pw-6ULY
In its single the band is starting a topical tale of unnamed Mister Sir – an unremarkable office worker lucky enough to be a part of a mundane, humdrum system of eternal routine, who’s only “joie de vivre” is getting his paycheck and living to see the next one. But soon enough Mister Sir is about to experience his road to Damascus and change forever. Or is he? 15 February is going to be The Payday! Get Ready! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYCzQwAd974
