Metronome(s) is an olfactory and sound installation. By the oscillation of a row of metronomes in XXL format, a succession of smells and sounds is triggered to come and play with our perceptions. As an initiatory path, the visitor, passing successively before each metronome, will face both his/her memories as an intimate resonance and a collective feeling.

 
 

Each olfactory emotion is amplified by a uni-directional ASMR sound that plunges the visitor into an intimate, ultra-sensory experience.

 

We wish to put French know-how forward with the exceptional craftsmanship of emotions through design, sound and smell.
