John Cale: Inside the Dream Syndicate Volume 2, Dream Interpretation, aka simply Dream Interpretation, is an album by John Cale during his tenure with the Theatre of Eternal Music. It is the second in a loose anthology of minimalist pieces, once thought lost, compiled from the tape collection of fellow minimalist Tony Conrad. The album follows Cale's debut collection Sun Blindness Music and the collaborative Dream Syndicate effort Day of Niagara. Dream Interpretation was in turn followed by Stainless Gamelan.
