Ressac


The floating object is both a recording device, a musical instrument
and a loudspeaker enclosure, animated by the surge of the waves
on the shore of the sea. The water is pulling the object softly into
and out of the water, like a stranded instrument played by the
breaking waves. A contact hydrophone in the pipe captured all
sounds in its narrow space of three meters length, the sound
recordings are played back within the recording device.
