Project description

Corps de résonance is a musical folly that takes form in a forest glade. It takes advantage of the movement of visitors who, from within this giant instrument, create sounds that harmonize with those of a typical Quebec forest.

Curiously harmonized with the surrounding environment, the reflections and the colour of the structure diminish the contrast between the natural landscape and the artificiality of the tubes. Approaching it, the extrusions resemble the trees and the vertical plants. This mysterious form invites the curious to enter and discover its second nature. Mallets, left for the use of anyone who wishes to pick them up, are there to be hit against the metallic forms to make them vibrate with sound.
