Singing Bridges – Symphony of the cables visualised
Available short film:
Seven minutes, 2005
Jodi Rose is a sound artist working with Singing Bridges project. She travels around the world recording bridge cables and making music out of them. For the first time, I collaborated with her in Expand’s Shadow happening for Di-Fusion in Helsinki working with visuals in 2002. We also had a concert in PixelAche Festival 2004 and 2005. PixelACHE Club 2004 in Helsinki featured a performance based
on the Singing Bridges material, created in collaboration with myself (live video improvisation), Lasse Kaikkonen (live improvisation on atonal kantele), Jussi Lehtipuu (cello) and bridge sounds by Jodi Rose.
PixelAche 2005 performance was in Sibelius Academy Chamber Music Hall. There was a new bridge recorded in Tikkurila, Vantaa. We tested live streaming from the bridge as well as from the concert and collaborated with Particle/Wave workshop.
We also travelled to Thailand to record a bridge construction site in Bangkok. I made videos about the bridge builders: they were very hard working in difficult conditions. Radio Aporee hosted a Singing Bridges Thailand concert in February 2008 in Berlin where the footage and sounds were brought to public.
