Sound and light show

From 25 July to 20 September 2020


Creations – Soundwalks

The Strasbourg Cathedral’s 2020 summer show brought together Les Ensembles 2.2 (sound design), Lnlo (video mapping) and Daniel Knipper (lighting design) for a production of the BigFamily Event. 

As far as we know, this was the first and only time the show featured electroacoustic music.

The sound creation designed by Gaëtan Gromer and Antoine Spindler used all the techniques and possibilities offered by electroacoustic music, evoking Beethoven’s works on the 250th anniversary of his birth, as well as the concrete sounds of the city of Strasbourg.

In parallel, soundwalks were available in the GOH mobile app and accessible at any time. Above all, it was an invitation to stroll around, to take one’s time, to (re)discover the city and to recharge one’s batteries. There were three different types of trail available:

  • A discovery trail to uncover places to relax in Strasbourg while listening to selected works by Beethoven
  • A fun trail, an ‘audio treasure hunt’ featuring sound puzzles
  • A trail continuing the show’s musical and luminous experience
