Musical Bridge

Walking along the Millennium Bridge after a wonderful visit at the Tate Modern yesterday I saw a weird site. This guy was bent over a bunch of electrical equipment with wires attached to the bridge's guy wires and headphones on. Dressed in all black and a fashionable coat, I didn't think he was an engineer or someone working on the bridge.

He handed me the headphones and I heard a wonderful jangly harp like sound. The man was Bill Fontana and he had come out from San Francisco to work on an installation sound sculpture for the Tate Modern.
