See one of London’s busiest streets in a different light. And sound. Beech Street Tunnel is probably most people’s least-favourite part of the Barbican area. However, two years ago, it became the focal point of a spectacular light and sound show that may well have redeemed it. Tunnel Visions saw the street closed to traffic for a weekend while digital projections, created by the Tony award-winning design and production studio 59 Productions, transformed the space into a visualisation that reflected the music being played.

Composer and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Karawane, recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, provided the soundtrack while 17,000 people roamed the thoroughfare watching colours and shapes murmurate across the walls, during the two days.

If you missed this truly memorable installation for Culture Mile – the collective name for the cultural spaces in the City – don’t worry, you can get a feel for the experience by watching this video.
