descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This monumental sculpture was built in Iles-de-la-Madeleine in the summer of 2013. It is made of resonant metal pipes with propane torches and whale bones, creating an aesthetic that supplied inspiration throughout the project. The work was firstly to find pipes of different diameters, to cut to different lengths to achieve the desired notes, and to procure the torches offering more variants to the flame level. It was also assemble the pipes to create a huge musical instrument allowing three people to play simultaneously from different sides, and then find the harmonies and finally learn to play together. Adding whale bones completed the sculpture, giving it meaning and soul. The bones were from including a sperm whale stranded on a beach in the Iles-de-la-Madeleine.

On 23 July 2013, the three musicians gave sculptors a show-performance arena Havre-aux-Maisons, Iles-de-la-Madeleine, with original music played exclusively on fire organ. For this occasion, they wore masks made of animal bones, integral with this sculpture that took life by pushing his complaints under the effect of the flames."-Tour de Bras
