Bridge Music goes digital

Joseph Bertolozzi announced last month that, commencing in the Spring, his Bridge Music project will have a permanent digital presence on the Mid Hudson Bridge in Poughkeepsie. Listening stations located on the pedestrian portion of the bridge, at the bridge's two towers will serve up the musical composition at the touch of a button. A future feature will entail a low frequency transmitter by which the work can be listened to via car radio or other personal receiver on and in the vicinity of the bridge.
The original live performance has been postponed pending sufficient financial sponsorship.
A more formal release of information will be forthcoming as the implementation of the digital phase draws near.

Sources have it that Bertoluzzi, who is a recipient of a 2008 NYFA Artist Fellowship in Music Composition will be reaching a milestone birthday later this month.
