After tranfering the capture data to Flesh, Wood and Metal. We start to work to construct our next performance. The idea of Flesh+Wood+Metal is _ beside the installations _ all these 3 devices can become very organic musical instruments. And for the opening of our installation at the festival Mois Multi (next february 15th), we will perform on these 3 very sensitive instruments.

After 4 days of set-up and tuning all the instruments. We went on the road to capture data from the proximal territory. January is a very cold month in Quebec, snow + ice and wind. With Mateo we went near the St-Laurent river to record the waves turbulences. This data will be the input that make reakt our WOOD device. For the METAL device, it will be the topology of the city that will control the magic harm in contact with the metal plate. And finally, for FLESH, We took fields recording between industrial and schools area. FLESH is a king of sensitive tympan that will diffuse these recordings in a very strong physical ondulations.
