A collaboration between Cédric Carles and Vialka. The team will build a mobile solar powered sound unit that can be operated without using the electric grid. After the onsite construction of the solar powered unit at Jaaga in Bangalore, the team will demonstrate its functioning at presentations, lectures, DJ-sets and concerts by Vialka in Bangalore and Pune.
The 3S Solar Sound System is a modular solar powered amplification unit that can work in public places, in urban centers as well as in remote parts of the country. Since its creation in 1999, the 3S has been used successfully across the world for several applications. After their tour, the unit will remain at Jaaga so that it will be available for other interested organizations in India. The unit can be used to power equipment at cultural events, amplification at presentations and lectures and as an educational tool in workshops/presentations on solar energy.
