‘Echo Lane’ will be a space for shared acoustic experiences, featuring 6 trumpet horn speakers suspended above the laneway and connected to the walls through convoluted metallic tubes. Davies Lane encompasses unique acoustic properties where sounds echo naturally and organically without the need for electric amplification.
The work aims to be inclusive at all levels with the inclusion of 6 benches and wheelchair accessible flexible Speaking Tubes. It also offers opportunities for spontaneous happenings from pedestrians, professional buskers, amateur performers, children – anybody who can speak, sing, or even amplify music into collector pipes and create shared musical experiences.
