Under Voices (2007) – China Blue
How does the Eiffel Tower sound?
Under voices by China Blue
The sounds in the video are recordings made using contact microphones, placed directly on some of the tower’s metal surfaces. With this technique, the artist China Blue has managed to capture some kind of inner soul or voice that has been impossible to hear before. The special, almost singing sound arises when the huge metal structure moves in the wind or is influenced by the visiting people so that resonance tones are stimulated.
