DESIGN SPOT PARIS SACLAY
More than a sculpture, Sound is an innovative and disruptive project based on a new acoustic technology developed by research engineer Christian Bolzmacher from CEA List. This is based on control and reverse spatio-temporal filtering which allows a surface to be transformed into loudspeakers.
The Sound project is therefore a demonstrator/speaker which makes it possible to illustrate this research on different materials and supports, and to activate them together, or independently. Thus each surface can be controlled, and give a sound with a coloring linked to the intrinsic peculiarities of the material.
Similar to a totem pole, this acoustic sculpture diffuses sound waves with a high-fidelity and spatialized rendering.
Prototype made by Bruno Clanet and Synapses.
