This sound installation consists of a cylinder made from maple, a local wood used by the luthiers and harpists in Sainte-Croix. It moves towards then away from a music box, fixed above it. This movement, and the music, are made possible by a double mechanism driven by a weight. When the two parts come into contact, the wooden surface becomes a sound box, amplifying and allowing the melody to be clearly heard.
