US rock star Lou Reed and his artist wife Laurie Anderson are to stage a “high-frequency concert” for canines in Australia.

Music for Dogs, to be held outside the Sydney Opera House, is billed as “an inter-species social gathering on a scale never seen before in Australia”.

The bizarre recital in June will be largely inaudible to the human ear.

The couple said they have experience making music for at least one dog – their rat terrier, Lollabelle.

“She likes things with a lot of smoothness but with beats in them,” Ms Anderson told the Sydney Morning Herald.

She said the inspiration for the performance at the Vivid Live festival in Sydney came while she was backstage at an event and thought: “Wouldn’t it be great, if you were playing a concert and you look out and you see all dogs?”

The show, created by Ms Anderson, will last for 20 minutes as she says “dogs don’t have a giant concentration span”.

The sounds will be played at high frequency like a dog whistle, setting dogs’ ears twitching but barely audible to their owners.

It is billed in the festival programme as “an absolute must for any dog and their two-legged friends”.
