What if silver had a sound?
Chanting…enchanting chains, bracelets, rings; this is the sound of Hermès Silver.
Out of obscurity a series laser strikes a piece of jewellery placed on metallic turntables, then moves over it, caressing its volume, and coaxes from it its own particular voice. Chaîne d’ancre and its variations, Initiale, Parade, Osmose and Etcaetera – each of Pierre Hardy’s creations find musical expression. These alien notes then join together to create an experimental symphony.
This interpretation of The Sound of Silver is a performance initiated in collaboration with United Visual Artist (UVA), the British design practise.
