“Résonance”: seated concerts in the Museum of Art and History

The Museum of Art and History will host “Résonance”, a project running until the month of June which offers visitors to the MAH the opportunity to enjoy a multi-sensory interpretation of the works of Alexandre Calame and François Diday, experiencing the sound and vibrations of the music which draws its inspiration from the paintings.

Take a seat on these wooden chairs and journey through the works of Alexandre Calame and François Diday.

Endowed with an electronic device, these wooden chairs transform the sound of the music into vibrations. The fruit of a collaboration between the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the artistic pairing of Charlotte Nordin and Raphaël Ortis, these chairs allow visitors to the Museum of Art and History to enjoy a multi-sensory interpretation of the works presented in the room, experiencing the sound and vibrations of the music which draws its inspiration from the paintings.

Vibrant concerts are organised one Thursday every month, with musicians drawn from a wide range of musical backgrounds. As these events are recorded, any visitor to the museum will be able to take a seat at any time on these chairs with their vibrating sound. The chairs will remain in situ between each concert.

The sound emitted is gradually modified by means of a composition software created in collaboration with Art Zoyd Studio, which calibrates the musicians’ initial composition using a precise algorithm.
