Straddling the line between art and sensory-teasing entertainment, Ghost Line X is a one-night massive sound and light show that will be installed underneath the Boggy Creek overpass in Rosewood Park on Nov. 19.
Some 15 giant speakers arranged in a single 450-foot line underneath the overpass in the East Austin park. Audio compositions by an international roster of sound artists take on the theme of transportation technology.
Part of the Austin Studio Tour, Ghost Line X is a co-production of Austin sound art collective Rolling Ryot and Nelda Studios, an Austin-based multimedia company.
“Since the industrial revolution, the unique sonic characteristics of transportation technology have become an ever-present aspect of the urban soundscape,” writes Rolling Ryot in its press materials. “(The Ghost Line X) composers have created works inspired by not only the past and present of transportation but imagining the sonic future of our transportation landscape.”
