The book, DISSONANCES is a collection of older and newer cartoons related to music and music lovers.


Various virtuoso musicians, singers, soloists and dazzling instrumentalists are the main charachters in the shnapshots from the drawing pen. The cartoons illustrate varied rehearsels and lively concert performances. The respected audience looks on, mostly with dedication an enthusiasm, sometimes busy with other things. Music terms like humoresque, nocturne and elegie are reinterpreted in the drawings, a fortissimo is sung shrilly and the missed cue is improvised if necessary.
