Global Bridge Player Commission ⁄⁄

bloc has commissioned Jodi Rose to create a smart-phone app which allows anyone to capture bridge sounds. Jodi Rose is a Australian sound artist living in Barcelona and working with the sounds generated by suspension bridges. She has ‘miced up’ bridges across the globe using contact microphones and expensive accelerometers to create live performances and recordings.

For bloc’s commission, Jodi will create a smart-phone app ‘Global Bridge Player’ which, by utilising the phone’s built-in accelerometer, will enable anyone to capture bridge sounds cheaply. The creative team include artists John Matthias and Jane Grant from The Fragmented Orchestra
