Sun Drum is the first sound public art object installed in the Arctic Circle, on a picturesque hillside in Murmansk. As a “walking” sun on the hill, it reflects the sunset. Yet, Sun Drum adds the enchanted metaphone sounds to the Murmansk port’s symphony. Metaphone is a metal musical instrument, unique in its kind and size, the prototype for which is the popular percussion instrument, the steel tongue drum. Sun Drum has been realized at the intersection of public art and sound art.
