IDEA: An exploratory exhibition on the propagation of sound in the human body.

WHAT: 'On the sensations of tone' brings together three artists where sound, listening, the ear of the listener and the composer are essential elements in their work. This approach evokes the theories of Hermann Ludwig von Helmholtz (1821-1894) in his seminal work 'The physiological theory of music based on the study of auditory sensations', published in 1865 in Germany.

WHY: It pays attention to the propagation of sound in the ear, and researches the ear as an essential element to compose music.
