Sound sculpture by Nicolas Bernier
L'usure du clocher (Wear of the Belfry) is a sound sculpture in which a 7 foot high aluminum structure holds three moving horn speakers. Their motion is a mechanical sway driven by motors. In this sound projection sculpture, the downward facing speakers evoke the church bells that produced the main sound material used for the audio composition.
