The huge Bascule Chambers underneath Tower Bridge are to be again turned into a music venue for a few days.
They can only be used for this purpose on occasions, as they are needed for another function usually – the counterweights for the bridge slide into the chambers when the bridge opens.
This year’s concerts, by composer and curator Iain Chambers, showcase three major new works, alongside commissioned spoken word performances,
The programme includes a contemporary response to Handel’s Water Music by Langham Research Centre, 300 years after Handel’s famous work was premiered on the Thames. This new piece will see the group ‘play’ the sound of the Bridge’s river and road traffic live, using hydrophones in the river and contact microphones on Tower Bridge itself.
The concerts take place on Friday 22 September, Saturday 23 September and Sunday 24 September.
