Dischordia (exercice d’insoumission) (1990)

Jean Lesage

piano

The origins of Dischordia lie in reflection upon dreams. The work attempts to usher different fragments of our nocturnal world into the domain of the sonorous. The dream-state narrative translated into music.

Familiar faces appearing at disconcerting junctures.

Unfathomable monsters that emerge from the most banal of situations.

This strange amalgam of the irrational and the coherent, so characteristic of the world of dreams, shapes the work’s poetic sequence.
