about

In the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan, objet petit a ("object little-a") stands for the unattainable object of desire. It is sometimes called the object cause of desire. Lacan always insisted that the term should remain untranslated, "thus acquiring the status of an algebraic sign" (Écrits). 'The "a" in question stands for "autre" (other), the concept having been developed out of the Freudian "object" and Lacan's own exploitation of "otherness."

Track Name: PONG
I ran away from my desire
Track Name: La mer
J’ai vu les corps brûler
Les maisons tomber
J’ai vu les sables s’envoler
Et les nuages se relever

J’ai vu les corps se fâner
Et les yeux se refermer

J’ai vu la mer emporter
Des amours inachevées
Et déposer sur l’horizon
Des futurs dépassés
