This new installation from Mons sound and multi-media artist explores the relationship between the rippling of water and sound waves. Eight speakers are placed around a small pond, with a computer-controlled striker under each one.

The basic principle of this installation is to trick our brains into perceiving the percussive sounds coming from the speakers as creating an impact in water, sending ripples across the pond which themselves give birth to sounds in motion, thanks to the spatializing effect of sound through the various speakers.

In other words, the sound coming out of the speakers follows the motion of the ripples in the pond. In this new experience, this “Echo System”, water takes on new shapes thanks to sound.

Specialist sound design made from in situ recordings, Stéphane Kozik confronts the wild and disturbing nature of this gathering of 500 vultures to discuss the myths that this bird vehicle.

A unique time of experimentation and exchange for this special edition of Park in progress, whose productions have been made in the context of Periferias, dedicated this year to the them of ’the horror’.
