Drivers in Fremont enjoyed ‘Bridge Talks Back’

September 28th, 2009 by Thea

Saturday drivers lucky enough to be stuck while the Fremont Bridge went up, were in for a little artistic (and musical) surprise – “Bridge Talks Back,” the result of artist Kristen Ramirez’ summer-long residency inside the northeast tower of the Fremont Bridge.

Between 1 and 4 p.m. on Saturday participants joined in with signs and live music to celebrate the the Fremont Bridge through a sound art project that honors the historic Bridge through all of its daily rhythm and noises. Literally: Ramirez recorded sounds from the bridge (cars, horns, birds, bells, etc.) and played them over the sound speakers, while sixteen different horn players played live from the bridge’s four towers.
