Bridge Song in G
Location: Green Bridge, Brisbane Date: 2005/06
Commission: Brisbane City Council, John Holland Construction
Materials: H-Frame Cable-Stayed Bridge, Accelerometers, PC Laptop

The first permanent bridge sound installation, sensors built into the structure amplify Cables 4 & 8 to hear the internal sound created by wind and traffic vibrations live via touchscreen as you cross the bridge.
Transforming the familiar architecture of concrete and steel into an extraordinary on-site auditory experience.

Rama VIII Mega Bridge
Location: Industrial Ring Road, Bangkok, Thailand Date: 2006
Commission: VSL Engineering R&D, Bangkok

I was invited by chief Engineer, Pelle Gustavsson to record the sound of the cables as the bridge is being built. He wants to hear it 'played like Jimi Hendrix' and gives me access to the construction site for a week, sending his R&D Engineer, Rashid to accompany me and discover if there is a practical application to the tuning of the cables. VSL International has developed the DeMON sensor array vibration monitoring system, yet to be installed on a bridge: ideal for the Global Bridge Symphony.
