Fascinated by the rich and largely unearthed social history of Waterloo Bridge and its rebuilding during World War II by a predominantly female workforce comes a brand new work by composer and artist Claudia Molitor. Collect a headset from Somerset House to begin your 40 minute musical experience that features new compositions by Molitor, with contributions from drum and synth duo AK/DK, folk band Stick in the Wheel and poet SJ Fowler.
The Singing Bridge weaves you along Waterloo Bridge and its surrounding paths to give you time and space to consider your relationship to this bridge and its environs. Claudia Molitor’s work often draws on traditions of music and sound art but extends to video, performance and fine art practices. Exploring the relationships between listening and seeing as well as the spaces between artistic disciplines whilst embracing collaboration as a compositional practice is central to this work. This event is part of Totally Thames that runs from 1-30 September.
