Bridge Music (2 Locations)

Joseph Bertolozzi's latest public art project Bridge Music, is a unique sound-art installation featuring the Mid Hudson Bridge as the instrument itself. Launched during the 400th anniversary celebrations in 2009 of Henry Hudson's voyage up the Hudson River, Bridge Music was created by recording the sounds of bridge's surfaces (guard rails, girders, etc.) with various mallets and using those sounds to compose new works, making the Mid Hudson Bridge the largest percussion instrument in the world. These performances of the bridge's sounds are what one hears at the Listening Stations and on the park radios. The music contains no other tones than those of the bridge itself.
