Participatory installation / 4h per day
Cyclist-friends who love music,
welcome to the Athletic-Cyclo-Disco-Club !
Come and sweat to music as you search for the right tempo,
and beat the world record of 45 rpm !
Be the rightfull heir of Chuck Berry, James Brown and Raymond Poulidor !
This machine works only with muscular energy !
The public (10 years old minimum) is invited to do some cycling (as an apartment bike) and/or turn the manivelle (2 fellows: musical sport is a family business). Rotation is sent, via a flywheel, to a generator. The electricity produced runs a record player that plays 45 rpm record.
The cylcing directly influences the speed of rotation. Finding the right tempo is a matter of specialists. Muscular music lovers, come and test your ears and calves!
Note: no need to be a certified athlete to run the machine.
