Sound installation by Ken Rischard and FerroForum

FerroForum had invited the young audiovisual creator Ken Rischard to draw inspiration from the atmosphere of the strike day of August 31, 1942. His sound installation, the experimentation of which brought back the sensations and feelings of an anxiety-provoking period, was a spatial sound creation based on the environment of steel workers from a past era and fed by the sound archives of the National Audiovisual Center.

The events around the day of the strike, the traces of which remain extremely rare to this day, gave birth to an immersive auditory journey that left each visitor enters the subject in his own way, staged in the unique decor of the Salle des Pompes.
