The Morning Line #1

"The Morning Line", a public art structure (8m high, 20m long, built of 20 tons of coated aluminium and conceived by the British artist Matthew Ritchie), is a platform for contemporary music and composition and will reside on Schwarzenbergplatz for six months. The sonic pavilion has already been to Seville and Istanbul and has now been assembled in a completely new form developed especially for Vienna. It uses an interactive ambi-sonic sound system comprising 47 speakers to broadcast a series of stimulating new works by some of the world´s greatest sonic artists. In the background you can see the Heroes´ Monument of the Red Army which commemorates the 17.000 Soviet soldiers who died in the Battle for Vienna of World War II.

  1. Such a fascinating piece of mobile public art! So unique that it can be re-invented to suit a space! Love the swirl of detail!
