The Sound from beyond

Les Sons des Confins (“The sound from beyond”) is a sonic itinerary created by the artist Pierre Redon on the theme of water. 

This circuit covers eight stops along the Vienne and Loire River inviting visitors inside a sensory immersion of imaginary spaces and society’s collective mythology.

For the Nantes segment (7th stop along the itinerary) entitled “La prophétie” (“The Prophecy”), wayfarers will stroll between the tip of Île de Nantes and Rezé, creating a parallel between an Amazonian myth sung by a shaman with certain sites in the archaeological neighbourhood of Saint-Lupien, Hôtel de Ville (Town Hall), Le Corbusier’s La Maison radieuse, and Trentemoult.

Application can be downloaded for free on Android Play Store and Itunes.
