The first sound public art object installed in the Arctic, on the slope of a picturesque hill in Murmansk. The “Sun-Drum”, on the one hand, like the sun “walking up” the hill reflects the sunset. On the other, it complements the symphony of the Murmansk port with the magical sounds of Metaphon.
Metaphone is a metal musical instrument, unique in its kind and size, the prototype for which is the popular percussion instrument the tank drum.
“Sun-Drum” has become the second object realized by Weld Queen at the junction of public art and sound art (the first is “Tam-Tam” on Taurida). The sculpture occupies one of six viewpoints in Murmansk city. These points created within the framework of the project “Moy Zaliv. RF” and in collaboration with the project and research team “Artikametriya”.
