about

Bhumibol Bridge (Thai: สะพานภูมิพล)
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.
