Fontaine des Automates, Place Igor-Stravinsky

Sonic journey available online as of June 7.
See you on the IRCAM Circus mobile site!

This summer, forty years after its inauguration, the Stravinsky Fountain will be back to life! Its sixteen figures are being restored to their original animated movements and watery sounds. Designed by Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely—the subject of discussions with Pierre Boulez—the Place Stravinsky is the most musical square in Paris. References to Stravinsky's ballets abound: Ragtime, Les noces, Renard, Rossignol and, of course, the great Firebird, which leads and drives the overall movements. A musical renaissance, with the electroacoustic creation of Sivan Eldar, and the "Seven Tales from the Fountain" by the author Hélène Frappat, with the music by Mikel Urquiza, that we invite you to discover on the dedicated application, IRCAM Circus.
