Bide & musique Sounds of the sea: Listening online to the ocean floor By Rhitu Chatterjee and Rob Hugh-Jones PRI's The World "The cable is going underneath here," says Benoit Pirenne, standing at the water's edge on Canada's Vancouver Island. "It's going out 500 miles (800km) in a big loop in the ocean, coming back in the same place." The Vancouver cable connects a network of scientific instruments on the floor of the north Pacific, some as deep as 1.5 miles (2.5km). Set up by Pirenne and his colleagues at the University of Victoria, and called Neptune Canada, they continuously monitor the marine environment. Ocean floor listening posts in the north Pacific off Vancouver Island The scientists are harvesting large amounts of information, including water pressure readings that help them better understand the movement of tsunamis through oceans, which they hope will lead to more accurate warning systems. But they are also listening. It's also now available to anyone else with an internet connection. Ocean 'ears' National security Widening the net

Chercheurs de sons Ensemble Kérylos - Musique Grecque Antique Afin de reconstruire à l’identique les instruments de musique antiques, il a été nécessaire d’étudier avec précision aussi bien les sources écrites et figurées que les vestiges archéologiques, et de maîtriser la terminologie, transmise par les textes. L’apport des représentations figurées est considérable : ce sont plusieurs centaines de scènes musicales que les anciens ont représentées sur la céramique (voir Beazley Archive). Mais celles-ci sont toujours d’un maniement délicat, car il s’agit toujours de figurations, plus ou moins fidèles à la réalité, plus ou moins réussies, selon le talent de l’artiste, et toujours soumises aux contraintes des supports et aux conventions picturales du moment ou de l’atelier. Ainsi, les meilleurs peintres, qui poussent parfois très loin le sens du détail, s’abstiennent pourtant de dessiner certaines caractéristiques importantes des instruments de musique. Pour les instruments à vent, les auteurs antiques ne nous ont pas facilité le travail.
