Welcome to Bridgeland!
FRIDAY APRIL 23rd 2010
South Portland Street Suspension Bridge (1853)

Welcome to Bridgeland’ is the ceremonial opening of Bridgeland, taking place on the South Portland St Suspension Bridge on April 23rd for GI 2010. With local collaborators Guy Veale and Dave Tunstall, artist Jodi Rose will conduct a site-specific musical performance and celebration to bridge sounds.

Bridgeland is a metanation on every bridge around the world.

Every bridge is connected to all other bridges through the vibrations in their structure. Stretching across geographical and architectural borders into a new acoustic form, all bridges resonate with a secret music, transmitting and receiving messages, codes and signals. Voice and vibration. Concrete and abstract. A sensual aurality. Immersed in the world by your ear.

Amplifying the cables and bridge structure, the Bridge becomes an instrument played by the artists, in an audio/ visual on-site intervention taking us on a mysterious journey through a suddenly unfamiliar urban landscape. The live sounds of the bridge are woven into a “dark, industrial, organic, chaotic, strange and beautiful” composition, including a performance exploring the mythology, stories and poetics of bridges.

Bridgeland transcends the outlines of geography, where crossing the bridge transports you into another reality. Bridgeland is a place where anything may be possible. All we need is imagination.

lyrics

What is Bridgeland?

Bridgeland is singing. Bridgeland is dancing. Bridgeland is freedom. Bridgeland is yes. Bridgeland is infinite. Bridgeland is every bridge around the world. Bridgeland is home.

Every bridge, everywhere is part of Bridgeland.
Bridgeland is a metanation on every bridge around the world.
