Beech Street Tunnel
London, United Kingdom
We transform one of the City of London’s busiest streets into a free, spectacular light and sound installation for the weekend – one that lets you journey through music.

With the Beech Street tunnel closed to traffic and turned into a huge blank canvas, Array uses digital projections to transform the tunnel into a stunning 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 glistening 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.

Created by the Tony Award-winning 59 Productions, the team behind artistic commissions at Edinburgh Festival, Sydney Opera House and the London 2012 Olympics, this is the latest in a series of installations within Culture Mile that uses public spaces in unusual and exciting ways, letting you see the City in a new light.

Tickets are free but must be booked in advance at barbican.org.uk.
