Celebrating the work of the HSBC Water Programme, “A Living River” is a sound installation that brings the Yangtze river to the Skybridge at Gatwick Airport.
Using authentic sounds taken directly from 35 locations, passengers passing through the Skybridge can journey from the First Bend of the Yangtze to the mouth in Shanghai in immersive, 3D sound.
The experience, as diverse as the river itself, features 160 speakers and over 60km of speaker cable. The installation reacts to the movement of people, the time of day and even climatic conditions using real-time weather data from China.
