Working under the name Lady Sea and the Golden Ocean Orchestra, composer Courtney Lain and an 11-piece orchestra offered a musical interpretation of the bridge, its history, and the surrounding aquatic environment. Lain’s score accompanied archival footage of the construction of the bridge and the 1937 opening festivities, screened on a specially designed vintage-style TV set.
