Clapotis, June - September, 1995
In conjunction with Léman Animations Chimériques, a summer festival in Le Bouveret, Switzerland, a wave activated acoustic sculpture was installed on the edge of Lake Geneva for the 1995 summer season. The 10 meter hull from Alain IV, a sail boat which represented Switzerland in the 1960 Olympics in Japan, was used as the sound chamber and canopy. The lapping of the lake's water activated the acoustical properties of a series of flexible PVC hoses, filling the space under the hull with lake music.
