Sound Installation at the Edinburgh Art Festival

Timeline, a sound installation by Susan Philipsz at the Edinburgh Art Festival is worth checking out. It’s up through September 2, 2012

“Philipsz’ Timeline traces this now invisible line in a succession of short sound recordings installed across the city. Referencing both the mythical sirens of Homer’s Odyssey, and the invention of the first siren by Edinburgh’s John Robison, Philipsz’ voice will call out each day in response to the firing of the gun, creating a domino effect as each speaker sounds in turn along the timeline from Calton Hill to Edinburgh Castle.” – edinburghartfestival.com
