Tonotech

Ce projet est inspiré des liens intimes que les langages textiles, informatiques et musicaux entretiennent. Au 18ème siècle, les systèmes de cartes perforés utilisés par les orgues de barbaries et les métiers jacquards ont inspirés la base de nos systèmes informatiques. Cette installation sonore, électro mécanique interprète une partition de cartes perforés, mêlant sons acoustiques et motifs. Les visiteurs pourront ainsi remixer cette partition rendant audible les rythmes des motifs à travers les éléments de l’architecture.

Tonotech was inspired by the correlations between textile languages, computing and musical systems. In the 18th century, the punch hole cards were used by musical organs and jacquard weaving looms which inspired the basis of our modern computing systems. This electro mechanical installation reads a score of punched cards mixing acoustic sounds and patterns. People can remix this score making audible the rhythm of the patterns throughout the elements of the architecture of the space.
