A pedestrian and bicycle bridge spanning the Aura river in Turku, Finland will be the next location for the “Musique Concrete” project. Known as the “theater bridge,” this location will provide an excellent setting for the performance and present unique structural, functional and symbolic architectural elements.

The performance is scheduled on Wednesday, June 28th at 6pm and will offer an interesting display of new media, sound, and skateboarding in the public realm. Click here for more information about the “theater” bridge.
