The “Bachet Acoustic Sculptures” are sound objects invented by the brothers Bernard Bachet (1917-2015) and François Bachet (1920-2014). At the 1970 Osaka World’s Fair, the composer Toru Takemitsu, who was the director of the steel pavilion, asked François Bachet to create acoustic sculptures, and he came to Japan and created 17 of them. However, after the closing of the Expo, all the sculptures were dismantled, stored in a warehouse and forgotten by the world. About 40 years later, in 2010, when the former Steel Pavilion was reopened as the Expo ’70 Pavilion, plans began to be made to restore and reconstruct the acoustic sculptures. In this exhibition, the restored Takagi Phon, Kawakami Phon, Katsura Phon, Watanabe Phon, and Katsuhara Phon were exhibited. In addition, the archives leading up to the restoration were opened to the public, and a variety of events were held, including weekend concerts, performance performances, and workshops.
