Surrealism

Surrealism

"Dictation of thought, in the absence of any control exercised by reason, apart from any aesthetic or moral concern". Here is how André Breton defined surrealism in his manifesto, starting one of the most influential artistic movements of the 20th century. Built around unexpected sound juxtaposition, collages and improvisation, surrealist music breaks free from classical harmonic codes, giving free rein to creative freedom, a process that results in an often abstract, sometimes disturbing, always surprising musical synthesis.
