A while back in my Music Theory class, when we were doing scales/modes, my teacher showed us one that was used in like those dream sequences...you know what I'm talking about??

well now I can't remember the scale/mode, I'm thinking it was Harmonic or Melodic minor, but it coulda been a mode.

Thanks.
HEY
Do you like anime/manga?
PM me about buying the graphic novels I'm trying to sell

Lydian is good for dreamlike things, Lydian Dominant (4th mode of Melodic minor I believe, I could be wrong, I just woke up) is great for the same.

Phrygian dominant (5th mode of harmonic minor) is really good for nightmare-ish things too.

EDIT: can't believe I forgot whole-tone. that's like THE dream scale, debussy used it so much.

As well as the augmented scale (alteration of augmented and minor seconds)

Whole tone is THE dream scale .
If you slowly go up the scale while sustaining all the notes youll get the typical dream sequence sound.

I use that to define Midevil times lol
But yeah

Use the whole tone scale with plenty of reverb.
Or delay.

Exactly what I was gonna say. Try it with reverb and delay.
