Stupor for some of the people of San Francisco these past few days. These are in effect, as driven by the wind, a melody from the famous Golden Gate Bridge. The huge suspension bridge, iconic of the region with its orange colour and its architecture is marked by two huge towers, has undergone significant work in recent times. A transformation that gives birth to this "music" during high wind, " explains The Guardian.
many local residents have documented this experience a hypnotic experience on the social networks, hoping that someone can explain the origin of this music, as one might hear in a radius of several kilometers. The answer finally came from the authorities. Paolo Cosulich-Schwartz, a spokesperson for the department in charge of the Golden Gate bridge, highways and transportation even explains that the music was provided by the officials. "The new musical sounds from the bridge are a well known and inevitable result of our renovation project ". The Golden Gate bridge has been modified to make it more aerodynamic in very windy conditions. A transformation is necessary " to ensure the safety and the structural integrity of the bridge for generations to come."

The residents of San Francisco will now have to get used to what the bridge has become a gigantic instrument of music. On the social networks and in the local press, it is variously described as a " didgeridoo ", "music of meditation" or a " great kazoo ". The phenomenon should only reproduce in the case of very strong east wind. And contrary to the hope some users, the city should not " fix " this problem.
