Ondée (de jour)

Kunst am Wasser - Bern (Kirche Kleinhöchstetten) - 2010
22 chimes - magnet solenoid - solar cells
22 independent chimes modules are fixed under the roof. Each one is powered through a solar cell, placed over the roof.
Once the electronic is charged enough, the magnet solenoid hits the chime. It is high tuned, very thin, long lasting and pure.
The daylight defines the rhythm of each; if there’s not enough light, the installation is silent.
The work starts with sunrise, vary through clouds and shadows, then ends when sun is down. The place is near
the Kleinhöchstetten roman church. This is a simple place, apparently quite with a nice view on mountains. A transitory gap
between nature and urban environment. Down the hill, one can imagine the Aare river, but most of all we hear another invisible
flux, a noisy highway. Also, not far from there, Belp's small airport.
A rich soundscape into which the chimes try to set a new space and relations between these elements, telling a different story.
