Sunrise in Millenium Park

Playing in Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate in Chicago's Millenium Park
- 110 ton elliptical structure inspired by liquid mercury

The Pavilion designed by Frank Gehry
- outdoor concert venue that can hold 12,000 people in the heart of downtown Chicago

"How do you make everyone - not just the people in the seats, but the people sitting 400 feet away on the lawn - feel good about coming to this place to listen to music? And the answer is, you bring them into it. You make the proscenium larger; you build a trellis with a distributed sound system. You make people feel part of the experience."

-Frank Gehry
