In Dreams

Commissioned by Yarava Music Group / World Premiere
Tribute to Reza Korourian
Music by Reza Korourian
Video by Alfonso Belfiore

Following the welcome invitation of Mehdi Jalali and Gelareh Soleimani Lavasani, with great pleasure I made this visual work as a tribute to the Iranian composer Reza Korourian (1971-2015) using his electroacoustic composition “In dream” for the music. Inspired by the title of his composition and its sounds, I wanted to imagine a dream, an important and intense dream for what happens there, the encounter with one’s soul. For psychoanalysis dreams are a possibility for our unconscious to surface in our consciousness and tell us something about our fears, our desires, our anxieties, our inner conflicts and the great work that our psyche secretly and incessantly does to find the balance needed to face life. Remembering the fathers of psychoanalysis, in particular Gustav Jung, the apparition in the dream of an unknown male person represents the animus, that is the most rational, logical and calculating part of our psyche while the appearance of an unknown female figure represents our own soul, that is, the most emotional and irrational part of our psyche and of our most intimate nature. I imagined that the apparition in the dream of a little girl, of an unknown young woman, therefore represents our infantile soul, the bearer of truth, dreams, desires and intentions that have always lived within us and that constitute our identity more sincere, what we really are and from which life often distances us.
I believe that a strong symbiosis can be imagined between music and the concept of soul. The irrationality of music and the flows of its intensities are certainly the most comparable to the soul, to the irrational aspects and emotional flows of our psyche.
This very young soul appears in the dream submerged in water reminding us that water is a symbol of the unconscious world. It is therefore the sleeping soul in our unconscious that awakens in the dream trying to reach us to tell us something profoundly ours.

For the contribution to the realization of the video I thank:
