Flying may not be possible but Mona Foma's Chairway to Heaven will help Launceston festival-goers touch the sky.
The work, created by Mads Davey, Rachael Kim, and Katerina Stathis, utilises the Gorge Scenic Chairlift carriages to emit an analogue synthesiser sound that changes as other carriages pass.
Stathis said the piece was a 20 voice composition and was designed to treat the chairlift as an organism, which spoke to each carriage but also acted as one body.

"We've tried to create something that really reflects the lovely qualities of the Gorge setting, working harmoniously with the environment," she said.
Davey said COVID-19 made it hard to work with an installation that was site-specific.
"We didn't actually get to hear the piece until last night when we did a trial to see it," she said.
The event will run across the Mona Foma weekend from 10am until 5.50pm. Ticket prices can be found on the Mona Foma website at mofo.net.au.
