This page is a continuation of my Pink Floyd page on the topic of album & movie synchronicity (or synchronization). To enjoy a sync, simply play the chosen movie with the sound turned off, and play the appropriate CD at the same time. Turning on the captions can enhance the experience. Specific instructions for each sync are given on this web page.

Special Notes

16.04.21 Today we celebrate the 5th Anniversary of this Dream Theater sync page with two new syncs from one of their works.  Enjoy!

04.05.16 -  "May the Fourth Be with You!"  The Dream Theater concert on 29.04.16 was spectacular!  The band sounded great in the intimate setting of the Royal Oak Music Theatre.  Our seats were within 10 rows of the stage, so we had great seats to take it all in.  Not only was the music top-notch, but the visuals behind the band were also very entertaining.  Dream Theater performed the entire double CD "The Astonishing" over two acts.  It was an incredible journey!

28.04.16 -  I purchased 2 tickets to see Dream Theater live at the Royal Oak Music Theatre on 29.04.16.  My uncle Rick and I will be sitting in Section B Center, Row B, Seats 13 & 14.  This will be our first time seeing these guys in concert.  Looking forward to The Astonishing Live!

16.04.16 -  As soon as I saw the CD artwork for the latest release, The Astonishing, it reminded me of recent Disney film.  I am admittedly not that familiar with the body of work of Dream Theater, but the name of the band makes them good candidates for the secret sync society.  After watching the combination twice, I was pretty certain that it was an intentional creation.  Shortly after sharing my sync with a few others, Zephyr Ash found another interesting sync.  How long have these guys been involved in movie syncs?  The mystery continues...
