A flotilla of hot air balloons delivered an uplifting musical and visual experience in surround sound to people in Bristol yesterday (September 1) as part of Sky Orchestra.
Serenading people with specially commissioned new music, Sky Orchestra - A Moment in Time was created to "offer hope for the future" and showcase the creative talent of the city.
An arts project by renowned international Bristol artist Luke Jerram and Bristol-based BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones, it featured the premiere of a new composition commissioned by Bristol Old Vic, played through speakers attached to the balloons launched from Ashton Court, alongside live accompaniment.
The incredible line-up of Bristol musical and artistic contributors who joined forces for the project included Grant Marshall of Massive Attack, Stew Jackson, current writer and producer for Massive Attack, and Adrian Utley, founder member of Portishead.
Below are some incredible pictures of the audio-visual spectacle.
