1 April 2017: The first walk across the Humber Bridge was launched today where visitors can listen on earphones to sounds made by the bridge which have been worked into a piece of music as they walk its 1.4-mile (2.2km) length.
The Height of the Reeds is an installation created by Opera North for Hull's City of Culture celebrations.
Hull-born actors Maureen Lipman and Barrie Rutter read a commentary over the top along with narration by seven-year-old Hull schoolgirl Katie Smith.
Norwegians Arve Henriksen, Jan Bang and Eivind Aarset composed the music.
Sounds from the bridge were recorded by Hull-based sound artist Jez Riley French.
They include the sound of the railings being "played" and vibrations captured from within the structure.
He used microphones so sensitive they could pick up sounds the human ear usually cannot hear.
He climbed into the vaults of the suspension bridge to record the noise of the traffic overhead.
The Height of the Reeds opened today (April 1) and runs until the end of the month. Tickets have already sold out.
