OPENING DAY – JUNE 6, 2009
A lot of you have been asking “What happened to Bridge Music?”
Well, the global economic meltdown effectively killed any hope I had of presenting the original live concerts (5 of ‘em), but I wasn’t gonna let five years of preparation go down the tubes.
Beginning June 6 you will be able to hear the music on a permanent basis ON the bridge and its surrounding parks in a new installation (go to www.JosephBertolozzi.com for a map & directions).
Created for the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Bridge (The Mid-Hudson Bridge), the installation is free and open to the public, consisting of two components:  audio speakers mounted at two Listening Stations on the bridge’s towers that play the original music (10 tracks, 38 minutes) on-demand at the touch of a button, and  an FM stereo transmission 24 hours a day on 87.9FM within the parks surrounding the bridge.
It’s not the original live event, but I think it’s pretty cool nonetheless. If you are in the area, I hope you stop by.
And remember, the music contains no other sounds than those of the bridge itself.
