A platform for contemporary music, The Morning Line is as much an instrument as a building, saturated with speakers, using a unique interactive ambisonic system designed by Matthew Ritchie and the Music Research Centre at York University. Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary designated the The Morning Line to be a modular structure, which is capable of being radically reconfigured for alternative performance venues and can adapt to a changing program of contemporary music. The interactive system registers the movement of anyone inside and converts their presence to build new and scaleable forms of music, new stories created by every visitor. It offers a site primarily concerned with generating infinite potential meanings and uses. In other words, it is not only designed for the future, it creates it.
