Scientific concert by the Ophonius group


For the past two years, the Laboratoire Centre Lyonnais d'Acoustique (LabEx CeLyA) at the University of Lyon, in collaboration with the Groupe Ophonius, has been offering scientific concerts for local secondary school students.

This group, created some 20 years ago and made up of 3 professional musicians and 2 musicians/teacher-researchers from the Université du Maine (Le Mans), offers "scientific concerts" for the general public.

The group's original music, somewhere between jazz and world music, takes the listener by the hand to explore his or her own perception of the world of sound.
The "scientific concerts" show invites listeners to discover the physical phenomena that generate this perception, to quantify it, to protect themselves from it when it becomes unpleasant, or to shape matter to make it pleasant.

Technically speaking, this show presents the physical phenomena of acoustics, relying initially on the spectator's own perception.
The physical phenomena behind this perception are then analyzed using live experiments and multimedia supports (photos, videos, animations) commented on by the acoustics teacher-researchers and supported by the group's original soundscapes and music.
