Trumpet Flowers is part of the 2021 'River of Light' programme. For full details of this years River of Light, visit the dedicated page.

You can’t help but feel you are shrinking as you approach our super-sized trumpet flowers. Tentatively stepping inside some unseen Giant’s musical garden, you become surrounded by an explosive and immersive jungle of light, colour and sound. Moving in and around the flower forest uncovers a deeper connection to their individual trumpet key controllers. Interactive keys that allow you to play each flower as a 2-6m towering musical & light instrument. Make your own spectacular floral symphony of sound and light, or catch one of the scheduled animated musicals scores throughout the evening. Inspired by vintage gramophones Trumpet Flowers will shock and surprise as the entire world periodically bursts to life and plays its own commissioned musical score. A piece composed and played by Otis studio and some of Sydney's finest Jazz musicians. Every Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone and Drum sound in Trumpet Flowers repertoire, an individual live recorded and energetic moment at your fingertips to experiment with.

Trumpet Flowers is 5m tall and 6m x 12m wide. There are 27 flowers and 27 push buttons. The flowers are on a long stem and the petals are shaped to look like a traditional gramophone head. The flowers are made from translucent plastic that illuminates in red, purple , green and blue. The buttons are red in colour and shaped like a traditional trumpet button. When the button is pushed the corresponding flower will illuminate and play a trumpet sound. The Artwork looks like a giant musical forest inviting people to move throughout and explore.
