Arvo Pärt and Snøhetta collaborate for Guggenheim 

"For the second edition of stillspotting nyc, composer Arvo Pärt and the architects at Snøhetta collaborate on a series of stillspots around Lower Manhattan that explore the special relationship between space and sound. Pärt’s concept of tintinnabuli (“little bells” in Latin), which forms the basis of most of his work, was born from a deeply rooted desire for an extremely reduced realm of sound that could not be measured, as it were, in kilometers or even meters but only in millimeters."

Tours for To a Great City run from Thursdays to Sundays, September 15–18 and 22–25, 2011. Hours of operation are 11:00 am–7:00 pm, with the last ticket pick-up at 4pm.
