Sound Pavilion

Sound Pavilion

For six months The Morning Line pavilion at Schwarzenbergplatz will present a special auditory experience. Developed by New York artist Matthew Ritchie as an interdisciplinary platform, "The Morning Line" offers the opportunity to explore the interaction between art, architecture, music, mathematics, cosmology and science. "The Morning Line" is a 10-metre high and 20-meter long pavilion consisting of 20 tons of black-painted aluminum.

The pavilion is also equipped with 50 loudspeakers controlled by a multidimensional sound system. This "instrument" is played by a group of international composers, whose works go beyond the limits of traditional and contemporary concert halls.

"The Morning Line" was initiated by Francesca Habsburgs Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-B A21). The pavilion can be "experienced" for free at any time, day or night, until 20 November.
