Presenting Fanfare, an interactive sound installation

Montréal, May 26, 2011 — This summer, Molior is presenting Fanfare, an interactive sound installation, at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. Throughout the summer season, Museum visitors will enjoy participating in Fanfare's collective musical experience. The press conference inaugurating the installation is scheduled for 10 a.m. on June 1, 2011, at the Museum.

An Amuse creation from designer Melissa Mongiat, Fanfare comprises a series of coloured arches that are sensitive to visitors' movements. When participants move into the installation, they set off sound clips from the piece Les nains by composer Bernard Poirier.

The installation was hugely successful when Molior presented it at the Montréal Science Centre during the 2009 Eureka! Festival - Science Here, There and Everywhere! With its artistic, technological and playful features, Fanfare won over the event's audience.

The presentation of Fanfare is the first collaboration with the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, one that Molior enters into with great pleasure. When the installation is inaugurated, Molior will sign a memorandum of understanding with the Museum. The partnership will give rise to many stimulating projects.

When: Sunday, May 29, 2011 2:00 p.m.

Where: Canada Aviation and Space Museum 11 Aviation Parkway, Ottawa
