“It seems that if anyone is going to extract music from the secretive steel of a suspension bridge, it would be Jodi Rose.” Kim Velsey, Alarm Magazine

Singing Bridges with Carly KO (dancer) at Pont Social: OF TWO*
“The geometry of the bridge Simone de Beauvoir is remarkable, vibrations in the structure are not directly audible. Using properly placed sensors and various sensitive devices, we will reveal the sound universe hidden in these tubes of metal. An interactive universe, responding to the proposals of the passers-by…”
Video Documentation by Dzoan Nguyen Tran Sound from live amplification, composition and the rain falling on the bridge…
Emmanuel Rebus (Singing Bridges) Emmanuel Rebus, scientist and musician, assistance to the Parisian aspect of his work: indeed, the bridges of Paris are not suspended and they need a few small excitations to vibrate…
Jodi Rose (Singing Bridges) Jodi Rose est une artiste nomade d’origine australienne, qui parcours le monde pour enregistrer les vibrations de ces gigantesques harpes éoliennes que sont les ponts suspendus.
Carly KO Carly works with street theatre, dance, body mime, circus, and most recently yoga and singing. She adapts each work to the situation and will synchronize with the sound installation set up for the event with Singing Bridges, interpreting the structure to create a surreal world of aesthetics, poetics, emotion and passion.

Ljubljana Bizovik Bridge
Slovenia Dec 25 – 28, 2007
A short edit of a live cinema performance, where a bridge was used to generate sound. Contact microphones were placed on the cables and railing of the bridge. Usually unheard sounds were exposed and for a short while we vibrated with the structure. The recordings we made that day were later processed using a variety of tools to create a 40 minute live cinema performance.
