Melbourne’s arts and culture festival RISING (01—12 June), is staging an audio-visual installation on the Birrarung (Yarra) River. As a local resident, we wanted to let you know that this event is taking place and that you may see and hear the work.
MONOCHORD is a new river-wide audio-visual installation by internationally recognised Melbourne artist, Robin Fox. Using cutting edge technologies laser beams point from Sandridge Bridge and Birrarung Marr, creating a nexus at either side of the iconic Princes Bridge. The work spans almost a kilometre in length and activates at set times for performances. The show happens approximately every 15 minutes and runs for five minutes. It features sweeping planes, mist and flickering synesthetic effect, synchronised with sound and music.
All are welcome to attend this free, family friendly event. MONOCHORD will be able to be viewed along the entirety of Northbank and Southbank between Sandridge Bridge and Birrarung Marr. The installation will occur nightly for the length of the festival: Wednesday 1 June to Sunday 12 June, 6.30PM—9.30PM.You can find more information about the project here: https://rising.melbourne/festival-program/monochord
The lasers will originate from Sandridge Bridge and Birrarung Marr. Designated listening areas with a live audio component will be installed at Birrarung Marr and along Evan Walker Bridge. Pontoon structures in place for the fountains will be on the river on the east and west side of both Princes Bridge pillars. Depending on wind speed and direction some water spray might reach Southbank and Northbank.
There will also be some testing of the laser beam on Monday 30 May from 10PM—11PM and the laser beam, fountains and speaker system on Tuesday 31 May between 5PM and 10PM. The equipment will be installed between Friday 27 May and Tuesday 31 May and removed after the last performance. During this time, you may see production crew, forklifts and equipment to install the work.
To facilitate the build there will be restricted access to Sandridge Bridge, Evan Walker Bridge and Princes Bridge from Friday 27 to Monday 30 May and again from Monday 13 to Tuesday 14 June. Road traffic will not be affected in these areas, but delays are expected for pedestrian traffic.

We hope you enjoy the work.
