Floating Square is a sound and visual installation, a robotized musical instrument built on large scale, a suspended sound sculpture.
An ensemble of cords is suspended vertically with the help of reverberating counterweighs. The cords are amplified and they will vibrate thanks to a directed air flow.
The turbulence of the air flow produces a state of permanent micro-changes, each harmonic becomes visible, audible and evolutive at the same time.
The wave forms on each cord become the screens in which drawings of a visual narration will be video proyected.
At the same time the vibration of the cord itself affects the projected image, giving birth to a kind of 3D holograms.
Floating square is produced by Sonambule and Atelier Coulisses,
co-produced by Le Cube, with the support of Césaré (national center of musical creation), of the Lieu Multiple, of Lutherie Urbaine and DRAC Ile de France
