"Not light, but darkness visible."
The Morning Line proposes a ruin from the future, a new type of architecture whose function cannot only be inferred just through use and acoustic immersion, but by reading it. Artist Matthew Ritchie, architects Aranda\Lasch and Arup AGU have worked together to integrate science, art, architecture, music and film into the first semasiographic structure. Simultaneously generating itself and falling apart, the 10 meter high and 20 meter long anti-pavilion, built of 20 tons of black coated aluminum, is not an enclosure, but an opening up of the performance space. It is equipped with 41 Meyer speakers, controlled by an advanced multispatial audio system designed by Tony Myatt from the Music Research Centre of York University, who have created a parallel universe of sonic architecture. For Vienna, sound curator Franz Pomassl has invited an international line-up of composers to conceive of and perform live new three-dimensional sound diffusions for The Morning Line, commissioned by T-B A21.
