Onder de Brug: Torontobrug

A city sounds different in hidden places. Outdoors, sounds and words evaporate. The cellars under the bridges of Amsterdam are like a sound box. Sound, tune, thoughts linger before they disappear. As if the cursed goddess Echo is nesting there, copying other men’s sounds and voices.

Iris van der Ende took her harp, a very resonating music instrument, to this bridge cellar. The music will emphasize the acoustics of the venue with arpeggio, chord, and melody. De theatrical music performance Onder de brug had Iris working together with location composer Yvonne Freckmann, which started at the Festival Over het IJ, under the bridge at restaurant Loetje. For a follow-up of this project, Iris and Yvonne sailed the Amsterdam canals by boat to study acoustics under the bridge. They discovered that every bridge has its own sound and they chose two completely different bridges. Today, Sunday 12 August, you are welcome at the concert under the Torontobrug, the huge car and cycle bridge over the Amstel with five passages.
