Perchance to Dream is the twentieth track in Halo: Original Soundtrack.

Overview[edit]

The piece is based on a slow paced drum beat. This lies under a simple synth melody comprised mainly of a long note and three descending shorter tones. A bridge is played twice in the piece, once in the middle, and once in the end.

Appearances[edit]

The track plays during the Halo: Combat Evolved campaign level Assault on the Control Room, when John-117 continues on without Fireteam Zulu and enters a structure with sleeping Unggoy.

Arrangements[edit]

It was arranged into the following:

Production notes[edit]

The name "Perchance to Dream" was derived from the same phrase in the famous "To be, or not to be" soliloquy in William Shakespeare's Hamlet. It is has since been incorporated into numerous literary, musical and dramatic works.
