Coming into those boxes, the auditor travels in surprising sounds trips. Soundboxes are cubic structures, colourful and light, suspended, turning on their axis, standing in public spaces, hanging on trees branches under a park bench or between two façades. Soft speaking whisper of silence, sky, sounds, earth, rhythm and life.
One of those soundboxes plays with our cardiac pulsation. The first one was created for the Noirlac Abbey in France, the second one is specially designed for the French embassy in Rio de Janeiro.

Wink to Marcel Duchamp, this tridimensional ready-made is a percussive instrument, surprising and playful. It’s an instrument in suspension composed by a bicycle wheel, placed on top of a set up of 20 bells installed on a bootle rack. With simple sticks, the spect’actor can play it according to his inspiration. An interactive system transforms and amplifies the sound in real time. At a time the Marcelophone sounds like an Indonesian Gamelan, later we enter in a cosmic atmosphere.The Marcelophone brings the apprentice musician in a captivating journey.
An itinerant cart for musical swap.
Cyril Hernandez is driving the Cart, with his microphones, percussions and laptop he’s offering an intimate concert in exchange of a small interview. The cart reveals the soul sound and the fraternity we embody.
It’s a sexy version of the swap cart. The public is playing it. This cart contains a magic skin. By touching it, the spectator reveals sounds and images of love and pleasures. The caresses reveal intimate feelings, sounds and images celebrate pleasure of soul and body.
We present the Tactile in public or private space.
Installation 2007 and 2015
The mobile consists of a 6 speakers in suspension moving by the wind, emitting Cyril Hernandez’s recordings and musics. Walking above the mobile the listener makes his own mix. At night spheres illuminate. The MobilSound is changing into a rolling and lighting sound system. The listening area is going to be a space of musical exchanges and a dancing space.
For many years, Cyril Hernandez has played and worked with water. Whenever he dips his hands into the water and strokes it in a kind of primitive yet daily gesture, he makes the element sing. With the help of the recording and live electronic system, water becomes a real instrument.With this sound and visual installation, Cyril Hernandez puts the viewer face to face with the element. This time it's the spectator's movements that transform the sound and image.
At the center of the device, a half sphere, a tank filled with water, seems to be listening to our dreams and fantasies. Now the visitor becomes like a new narcissus, so the game can start.
