Discontents (2002-2003) was composed as the score to the first section of a four-part performance piece, Kick in the Eye, by MAP Intermedia. In MAP's compositional process, each discipline starts with the same topic (idea & information) and a procedural map (articulated process). The individual artists then create collectively to realize a whole work comprised of different medium-specific perspectives of the particular subject matter.

Using textual guidance from Freud's Civilization and Its Discontents, and fragments from Metallica, Gary Numan, Ministry, D. M. Ingalls, Charlemagne Palestine, pornographic film and detuned radio stations as sound sources, Discontents is one example of what results.
