The 8 songs were recorded at the Q-Factory studio’s in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. “Dreamworld” originally started as a piano-song but developed into a jazzy uptempo song, carried by contrabass and real drums. Keyboards, guitar, percussion and singing were added later.
“A beautiful day for a 5-inch display” is a piano instrumental. It’s the background melody when the main character of the film is telling the story.
“Dreamworld” is a song about paradoxes: “This is my dreamworld in which I like to throw my life away” and “Such a beautiful day for a 5-inch display”. In the film the song ends with the words “Throw your life away if you want to exist”. Everything is in a reverse reality, which is in fact the “only reality”.
“The Hole” is a song originally composed in 1996 but was never recorded before. It was played on the grand piano in the Q-Factory studio’s with very minimalistic, almost whispered singing in the end.
