Commissioned by the Festival d’Avignon / CDN Orléans Loiret Centre
Avignon (France), 2008

Inspired by the organic shapes of the marine world, Précisions sur les vagues is a scenographic device tailor-made for the homonymous soundscape imagined by Célia Houdart and Sébastien Roux. The wooden structure - which measures approximately four meters in diameter - is conceived as a hollow and circular shape in which metal slats, cut into helical forms, seem to wave like seaweeds. A wink to the Fun pendant lamp designed by the Danish designer Verner Panton in 1964, the glittering elements form a rigid curtain that envelops and hides the loudspeakers placed at the heart of the structure and prevent visitors from seeing and disturbing each other. Framing the whole, ten small alcoves - separated by thin walls - invite the viewers to come closer, sit down and listen to the loop sound.
