"In the last few years, with their 'Orgue de Bois' ('Wooden Organ'), Denis
Tricot and Eric Cordier have installed constructions which are at the same
time sculpture and musical instrument in many public spaces. Each
'Wooden Organ' is unique, conceived for the space that will receive it. A
monument, a square, a street, a city... With it's long undulating wooden lines
(successions of joined slats), it creates privileged spaces which are
exposed to the public eye. After a performance, the audience is free to explore
and discover the instrument's vast potential for musical sounds and noises.
More than thirty Wooden Organs have been created in the last four years in
France and Italy. Generally around thirty metres long, these monumental yet
extremely light sculptures integrate in their construction the basic 
principles of lutherie (instrument-building), and can be played like any string
or percussion instrument. The Wooden Organ is very simply amplified. The
recordings, like the concerts, use no electronic processing, but the
monumental instrument itself intentionally contains principles of mechanical 
resonance and vibration."  (Prêle)
