Guided tour of the GAUS labs- Alain Berry


Research Labs tour

02.03 — 02.03 / 2013


Chambre anéchoïque

Visit of Sherbrooke University Acoustics Group laboratories at 3:00 p. m.

Following the conference on noise pollution given in Sporobole by researcher Alain Berry, professor of mechanical engineering at Sherbrooke University, the laboratories of the Groupe d’Acoustique de l’Université de Sherbrooke (GAUS) exceptionally open their doors to us to present their research and installations.

Visitors will be able to discover and experience the possibly quietest space in Sherbrooke: the anechoic chamber of the GAUS. This unique acoustic space is both isolated from the noises of the outside world by tons of materials and isolated from itself since the interior surfaces prohibit any sound reflection: it is echo-free. It is, in principle, a free, neutral and silent acoustic environment. This type of laboratory space has had a remarkable influence on John Cage and his understanding of sound and music. An experience to live.

Free admission: Limited number of places: Please book at: Please book by next Wednesday, the address of the laboratories will then be communicated to you.

This visit is part of our peripheral activities *

* Peripheral activities respond to our desire to break down the barriers between artistic practice and contact with the immediate community through a transdisciplinary approach. A theme from the work presented in the room is extracted and discussed in the form of conferences, round tables or other types of activities bringing together researchers and speakers from various disciplines.
