An interdisciplinary installation by New York artist Matthew Ritchie, The Morning Line blurs the borders between art, architecture, music, mathematics, cosmology and science. It is due to open on June 7, 2011. This innovative multi-dimensional sound space stands 10m tall and measures 20 meters across, and 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 whose works have transcended the boundaries of traditional and contemporary concert halls 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, 2011. Admission to the pavilion on Schwarzenbergplatz is free of charge. From June 6-8, 2011 it will set the scene for the festival of contemporary compositions. Performances start daily at 7pm. Before Vienna, The Morning Line appeared at the 3rd Seville Biennale (2009) and in Istanbul (2010).
