The flampoule is a wind instrument which hybridizes light and sound for the benefit of the deaf and hard of hearing. The principle is to create a tool which materialises sound in real time through interaction between light and colour. This allows the player to be aware of the sound material he produces. We are dealing with a translation of the language of sound lnto that of light and colours.
The Flampoule is the first instrument of a planned orchestra of hybrid instruments. The purpose is to open the world of the deaf to a metaphor of musical language.
