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.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
