Entry with a ticket to the monument or to a concert

This "fearful" installation has been created to blend into the natural environment of the garden at the Royaumont abbey; a reflection on both the nature of sound and models of nature, long carried out by Jean-Luc Hervé.  Sensors and loud-speakers hidden in a bed of the vegetable garden, the Potager-jardin, constantly generate and model variable sound forms. When visitors make too much noise coming up to the installation, the music stops and only starts again when calm returns. An invitation to always remain alert, just like in the wild.
