Le chant de la matière

What might a symphony of substances sound like ? Is it possible to cultivate sounds ? What would be the form of a musical ecosystem ? It is on the horizon of these speculations that a desire is born, that of making “matter sing”, of listening to its potential resonances. From this desire emerges this project: to make audible some variations which affect, often in an unspeakable way, the world which surrounds us. Thus, a field of research at the borders of poetics and science is defined.

Singing matter is therefore a first attempt to answer to these speculations, a machine that explores the interactions between sound and matter, that probes its sound potential. The system analyses the movements and density of a fluid and produces a sound feedback within the device itself.
