Long Description:
Le Silophone est une installation sonore dans le Silo #5, un imposant élévateur à grain abandonné du Vieux-Port de Montréal. L'œuvre participe à la fois du réseau virtuel et de l'objet « physique », utilisant diverses technologies de télécommunication pour introduire des sons — glanés à travers le monde dans l'étourdissant espace sonore du Silo #5 et en retourner les échos aux expéditeurs. Le Silo, une immense structure composée de 115 cylindres de 30
mètres de hauteur et de 8 mètres de diamètre — constitue un envi-
ronnemental ascoustique unique où les sons sont«colorés»et transformés par une réverbération de 20 secondes.
