Designing a conch shell that could reproduce the Ocean sounds, the whales songs….
Reproducing whales and dolphins sounds in order to communicate with them…
We first started, with Jean-François Petiot and François Tavard at the acoustic research laboratory of Ecole Centrale de Nantes, to study the resonance peaks and impedance of the natural Triton Pacifica shell. One thesis was made upon the subject.
Then, we started to design what should be the chamber of resonance of our own shell.
We came up with a 3D pattern of the future Shelltone….
It was time for us to build prototypes.
