Damassama - Installation - 2011

présentée dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 13


Amphitheatre of Tibetan bowls, the Damassama reserves the place of conductor to the visitor who initiates with his movements the instrumental reactions (by interposed captors) inviting us to a personalised musical course.

Having the sound experience of the instrument makes us listen attentively, introspectively of the dimensions of self, of others and ones personal environment. From simple listeners, we become instrumentalists and creators of the sound universe.

During the piece, the vibrations penetrate the body and stay, encouraging us to listen to the world in a spiritual reality of which we are authors at that moment.
