Others play the piano. I play bridges.

Some people see the same as others - and yet something completely different. During a visit in New York, Di Mainstone saw the Brooklyn Bridge. But she did not see it only as a popular sight. She saw it as a gigantic musical instrument.

The thought of playing the Brooklyn Bridge with all its stones and steel wires did not leave her mind. When Di Mainstone was working in Brooklyn in 2009, she spent plenty of time on the bridge and examined it for sounds that were generated through the natural movements of the wires. The sounds were there, but how can this be turned into a real instrument?

Di Mainstone was looking for engineers, musicians and technicians to make her vision come true. Together they have found away: a special suit that connects the wearer and the bridge with a cable which enables the wearer to influence the sound through his or her movements. Doesn‘t matter who you are - artist, pedestrian, dancer - everyone who wears the suit can ‘play‘ the bridge as an instrument.

The length of the cable, the angle in which it is attached to the bridge, the way that the wearer moves - everything influences the sound. Every movement changes it. With this suit, the bridge actually turns into an instrument that can be played! With her unique project, Di Mainstone connects art, technology, dance and music. She shows us that there are new things to discover everywhere - all you need to do is change your perception. Di Mainstone has MOMENTUM
