Howl (2017)

There’s something ghostly about Jean-François Laporte’s FlyingCan. The air that enters by the bevel of the instrument produces sounds that sometimes recall the human voice or the cry of an animal. I wanted to put this aspect forward by augmenting the FlyingCan with a positioning sensor in order to trigger sounds and control lights located on the floor. The triggered sounds, often close to the feminine voice, prolong to the interactive components the presence of the body that is already manifest at the level of the instrument.
