Heir to the thought of John Cage, the Californian artist Bill Fontana has imagined a sound sculpture that mirrors a highly symbolic place. Silent Echoes makes a secret scene in Notre-Dame perceptible: the ten bells vibrate permanently. By means of seismic accelerometers, installed on these drones during an acoustic campaign on the most famous building site in France, the acoustic image of the cathedral and the imprint of a city are revealed and projected elsewhere. A work to be experienced on the terrace of level 5 of the Centre Pompidou, facing the two towers of Notre-Dame.
