Tickets Alert – Light and music show in a road tunnel – IanVisits

A road tunnel running underneath the Barbican estate is to be closed to traffic for a weekend next month, and turned into a light and sound installation.

Maybe amazing, or not – tickets are free and available now.

Using digital projections, the tunnel will be transformed into a visual realisation of a piece of music.

Unfolding over the course of 30 minutes, Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Karawane, recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, provides the soundtrack to your journey, as vivid colours and images flicker across the walls in response to the music, constantly re-shaping the tunnel’s interior around you as you move through the space.

This is the latest in a series of installations that uses public spaces in unusual ways.

The event takes place over the weekend of 17th and 18th March, and free timed entry tickets are available here. Note, when booking, only select e-ticket or postal. There wont be a collect in person facility on the day.
