SINGING BRIDGES singingbridges.net
Singing Bridges highlights the unheard sounds and secret language of the urban environment. The sounds of the bridge opens a space for reflection, poetic reverie and contemplation, taking us beyond the physical architecture and functional aspects of the structure, into another realm entirely. Tuning in to the voice of the bridge we can hear the creaks and sighs of the structure, the tension in the architecture, connecting to bridges around the world through the poetic acoustics echoing along the cables, in a location specific listening experience.
Singing Bridges thanks the following for support to realise this event: Concept, *recordings, editing and composition by Jodi Rose.
