The Height of the Reeds: Humber Bridge, Hull

The vast Humber Bridge is the focus of a new artwork for Hull UK City of Culture 2017. Norwegian musicians Jan Bang, Arve Henriksen, guitarist Eivind Aarset and Hull-based sound recordist Jez Riley French have created an interactive soundtrack – The Height of the Reeds – for Opera North, to be listened to on headphones as you cross the length of the 2,200m bridge. For those of us that won’t be able to make it to the bridge to hear the soundtrack in-situ, this video gives a flavour.
