Slowly scratch the stone

This visual, sonourous and interactive artwork is inspired by the lithophone : one of the oldest musical instruments of the humanity.
The spectators can scratch slowly each of the stones to explore their resonance. The different vibrations are augmented by a visual and sonorous relationship. The cymatic visuals come from wave shapes made visible in liquids.
Sonolithique offers a sensory and symbolic connection with mineral matter.

One version of this work is show in Vietnam inside the Dak Nong Cultural Museum. Some stones were used by the k'hos (first ethnic groups of the highlands) for make musical instruments. Some stones found close to the river were attached to liana and put in the water. The force of the water make the stones resonate and create powerful sounds, capable of repelling animals and protecting their crops. These stones were then used as lithophone to accompany their religious dances and rites.
