    taken for such responses as heart rate, breathing and galvanic skin response. Key to the experience are the latest 683and 686 loudspeakers, PV1D subwoofers and P7 headphones all supplied by renowned British speaker brand Bowers& Wilkins.

    Machover said of the impact of these: “Bowers & Wilkins loudspeakers and headphones sound absolutely amazing inthese spaces and really ‘make’ the experience.”

    The aim in the “Cocoon” is to immerse visitors in a powerful, musical experience and also use light projection, “hand-held” vibration, and the specially designed Gemini chair to guide the visitor through a meditation that measurablychanges visitors’ mental and physical state. As well as the Cocoon, visitors can meditate in a quiet collective “Chapel”space where voices are designed to envelop them, always revolving around a single tonality, with voice experiments inthis space aimed at exploring the resonances and benefits participants gain from group singing and chanting.

    As well as the immersive installation itself using a wide variety of technological tools to enhance the experience,including Bowers & Wilkins headphones and speakers for pristine audio quality, Vocal Vibrations is developing iPadapps for use before arrival and after the experience is over. When the installation opens at the new Le LaboratoireCambridge (USA) in October 2014, these apps will provide preparation tools for visitors as well as an ongoing course ofvocal meditations with progress tracked via an online community.

    Vocal Vibrations in association with Bowers & Wilkins runs 28 March-29 September (private view 27 March), LeLaboratoire, 4 rue du Bouloi, 75001, Paris.
