[fr] Tout corps ou assemblage de corps solide peut être mis en vibration si on lui transmet une excitation périodique dont la fréquence correspond à l’une de ses fréquences de résonance internes. Cette propriété est utilisée sur un hall de la Saline construite par C.N Ledoux. Les différents éléments présents sont mis en vibration par basses fréquences via un programme informatique* qui analyse les résonances du site. Chaque élément produit alors sa propre signature sonore. L’espace architectural est ainsi découvert sous forme d’un volume complexe mais aussi à travers les spécificités résonantes de ses différents composants.
Nous avons choisi de donner à cette installation la forme d’un espace de convivialité, composé de palettes en bois identiques à celle que l’on peut retrouver sur l’ensemble du festival. Un agencement géométrique d’espaces de discussion est installé au centre du Hall, et invite le spectateur à s’asseoir et à ressentir un espace paradoxal : entre la convivialité d’une zone de discussion et la tension physique induite par la vibration des objets. L’auditeur devient une sorte de résonateur, une prolongation des vibrations émises, et fait corps avec les vibrations produites par le site.

[en] Any body or assembly of solid bodies can be made to vibrate by transmitting a periodic excitation whose frequency corresponds to one of its internal frequencies of resonance. This property is used on a hall of the Saltworks of Arc et Senans built by C.N Ledoux. The various present elements are put in vibration by low frequencies via a computer program that analyzes the resonances of the site. Every element produces then its own sound signature. The architectural space is so discovered in the form of a complex volume but also through the resonant specificities of its various components.
We chose to give to this installation the shape of a space of sociability, composed of wooden palettes identical to the ones that we can find elsewhere on this festival. A geometrical layout of spaces of discussion is settled in the center of the Hall, and invites the spectator to sit down and to feel a paradoxical space : between the sociability of the zone of discussion and the physical tension created by the vibration of objects. The listener becomes a kind of resonator, and makes a whole with the vibrations produced by the site.
