Vienna Exhibit Celebrates the Art of Sound

Here's a unique experience for your clients in Vienna: Visitors to The Morning Line, a temporary pavilion on Vienna’s Schwarzenbergplatz, can experience a new dimension in sound until November 20.

An interdisciplinary installation by New York artist Matthew Ritchie, The Morning Line "blurs the borders between art, architecture, music, mathematics, cosmology and science," we hear. The multi-dimensional sound space is housed in a pavilion made of 20 tons of black coated aluminum. The construction, which resembles an ornamental paper chain, features 50 speakers which are controlled by a multi-dimensional sound system. A group of international composers provide the sounds for The Morning Line.

This project, initiated by Francesca Habsburg's Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-B A21), is open to visitors round the clock until November 20. Admission to the pavilion on Schwarzenbergplatz is free of charge. Before Vienna, The Morning Line appeared at the thirdrd Seville Biennale (2009) and in Istanbul (2010).
