«Résonances cristallines» is a sonorous artwork composed of crystalline shapes suspended in a tree. Each crystal resonates according to the rays of the sun light.

Along the branches, each element produces different notes depending on the intensity and orientation of the sun. This work is sensitive to the evolution of the weather and generates sound variations during the day.

Like a singular metallophone, the crystals contain resonators inside. The electronic creates the vibration and the solar devices are autonomous. Each one has the ability to emit a vibratory note when the sunlight illuminates them.

Each crystal is illuminated differently throughout the day.

According to the position of the sun and the weather, the sunlight illuminates and activates the resonators. The singular chimes of «Résonances cristallines» are also punctuated by instant of silence at the passage of clouds.



Technical specification

The installation is made with several translucent crystal-shaped structures of different sizes. Each crystal contains a rectangular metal element. Each interactive device is secured and protected inside.

On each piece of metal, there is a small autonomous electronic and a solar device which is used as a resonator. It is made of a small solar panel and a tiny motor. When the sun illuminates the translucent crystal, its activates the micro-motor.

Each crystal has the ability to resonate by emitting a different tone.
The level of the sound changes according to the intensity of the sun. The installation is delicate in low cloudy weather and becomes more present by clear blue skies.

The translucent crystals are composed of flexible PVC and tape.


The sound creation

The intimate and organic sounds can evolve slowly with the intensity of the sun. The score played is not written in advance but depends only of the intensity of the sun over the days : the weather and the seasons.

The installation is like a metallophone composed of metal bars of different sizes and tones. Each crystal emits a light tone.

A sign, drawn or suggested will invite the spectators to go and take the time to listen to the work at different times of the day.
