Singing bridges

  • On January 11, 2006

“Singing bridges” by Australian Jodi Rose is a sonic sculpture, playing the cables of stay-cabled and suspension bridges as musical instruments.

An urban sound-scape that reflects the physical and metaphoric structure of the telecommunications network, with its fibre-optic cables circling the globe. The iconography of the bridge cables echoes the telecommunications lines stretching across the globe and linking us together. The work plays on an acoustic extension and interpretation of the constant flow of information and data through these cables.

    this concept and project and study was done by many different people over time…. does this person acknowledge that they’re basically only copying another individual’s creative concept and practice? I doubt it.

    lorelei, any links or something?


    Thanks for pointing that out

    Sorry silly me

  4. hi lorelei, I’m curious about who exactly you have in mind? This idea was conceived in 1994, yes it was definitely influenced by the work of Bill Fontana, however it is different in many respects. I am always happy to acknowledge the influence and participation of the many collaborators who have participated in various parts of this particular project. however, I can’t speak for any other similar projects,but would be very interested to hear more about them. thanks.
