One other revealing snippet about Dreaming Machine: its title comes from a song by Susumu Hirasawa, of influential techno-pop pioneers P-Model. “Kon-san had been a big fan of my music for a long time,” says Hirasawa, who was approached about working on the film after contributing a song, “Rotation”, to the Millennium Actress soundtrack. “You can see that from some of the scenes in his films, such as my CD being on a desk or my song’s title in an advertisement on the train.”
Hirasawa rerecorded “Dreaming Machine” – a track from his 1990 album The Ghost in Science – for the new film’s soundtrack, while another old song of his, “Sailing Ship 108”, was used by Kon to edit a scene with no dialogue in which the robots are dancing. Kon revealed little about the film to the musician, who also wrote original music for its theme. “He didn’t express anything about his idea of the deep meaning behind the film to me,” says Hirasawa. “I think he trusted me and thought that, once I heard his idea, I would soon reach the ‘source’.”
As to what that ‘source’ may be, Maruyama thinks Kon may have had a message about nuclear power somewhere in mind with the film. Hirasawa, meanwhile, remains cryptic about what the “deeper messages hidden within the story” might be. “What the dreaming machine refers to, most people might think, is the performing robots in the story,” he says. “That would not be wrong, but I think about it differently... We have, however, no chance to find if any answer is right or not.” Kon seems to have shared Hirasawa’s feeling that the secrets of Dreaming Machine would be taken to his grave, writing with regret in his farewell letter that “basically most of the work can only be understood by (me)”.
