Catachresis Xavier Bourassa

Catachresis is a rhetorical figure which is to divert a word of his own senses. In music, the term is characterized as an unusual and hard dissonance. For this work, my compositional approach turns around sound sampling. So I abandoned sound recording to concentrate on the collection of musical fragments to create by destruction and reconstruction a belligerent work, allied to a state of emotional tormented.
