Les Dissonances is a collective of musicians founded 12 years ago by the violinist David Grimal, which gathers international soloists, musicians from leading orchestras in Europe and young talents. In this kind of a creative lab, musicians experience music as a rediscovered joy and tackle the masterpieces of symphonic repertoire without conductor, in the spirit of chamber music. Les Dissonances is above all the common result of an ideal, a collaboration founded on the quest for excellence and sharing. The choice of a flat organization based on trust, mutual listening and co-optation of each member, raises the issue of a society in which everyone is focused on his aptitudes to reach an ambitious common goal.

Project in the field of music
They would like to develop a common project based on:
– Working together with institutions (conservatories, concert halls, orchestras…) to create Les Dissonances Academy and give young talents the opportunity to experiment with Les Dissonances an alternative way of playing the music. This is part of an experimentation which aim to improve the classical field’s capacity to innovate and invent new approaches.
– Building bridges with professionnals of other sectors engaged in artistic and collective projects to find out how this « CO » approach can be put into question.
They are interested in sharing our experience with artistic collective in other sectors (art, theatre, dance…) which question the place of individual within the collective and explore new governance models. They would like to cooperate with universities of music, conservatories, concert halls or orchestras.
