Types of works and suitable sites

Almost all types of buildings, monuments, works of art, urban developments and street furniture, interiors and exteriors, can be transformed into instrument.

Almost all types of buildings, monuments, works of art, urban developments and street furniture, interiors and exteriors, can be transformed into instrument. The instrument and its tones depend entirely upon the constituent materials of the monument. Sensors are fixed by means of repositionnable adhesive or of clips and are invisible. The size of the amplification system varies according to the site and the audience, which can range from a few dozen to several thousand people.

The most “sounding” materials are obviously metal and glass, characteristic of 19th and 20th century constructions. Wood, omnipresent in stringed instrument fabrication, is also absolutely resonant, as well as stone, concrete or earth, depending on the forms and proportions (lithophones of strips, paving stones, columns...). The space defined by the site is used as natural scenography. We will thus prefer the possibilities of moving around high above ground, with an outside provisions of   structures, accessories, and technical elements limited to a minimum.
