Built on the mountainside overlooking the town, Tvísöngur pays homage to the Icelandic musical tradition and works as a natural amplifier for a five-tone harmony, a press release states.

Local musicians will perform at the opening. Transport will be available for those not wishing or able to make the 10-15 minute walk up to the site.

The project was realized in collaboration with Skaftfell Center for Visual Art and is supported by the Municipality of Seyðisfjörður and the Goethe-Institut Denmark, among others.

Kühne lives between Berlin and Montevideo, Uruguay. His artworks are dedicated to space and frequency.

Tvísöngur will be open daily from 12 pm to 10 pm and by appointment.
