Light Echoes was an interactive sound and light piece composed of a ring of nine tom-tom drums situated under the A13 flyover. The installation played with the phenomenon of ripples of reflected light often found on the underside of bridges. Light was projected through the water filled drums. When they were played, the water in each drum was agitated, producing pulsating patterns of light on the underside of the flyover. Light and sound became synchronised through interaction with these ‘light wave drums’. People were encouraged to play with the installation and submerge themselves in a virtual river of sound and light.
