An epic cube installation showcasing unheard material from late EDM artist Avicii is set to take place this coming weekend (June 1st and 2nd). Including Sydney’s own Martin Place, six large cube-like setups are being launched in Tokyo, London, New York City, Sao Paulo and Avicii’s birthplace, Stockholm.
An additional 10 smaller cubes are being set-up in other locations around the globe to preview material from the upcoming record TIM before its June 8th release. The project showcases some of the last material that Avicii, born Tim Bergling, was working on before his passing.
The installation intends to connect listeners and tangibly convey how Avicii’s music brought together like-minded fans from not so familiar backgrounds.
The record comes posthumously, with the artist having taken his own life in April of 2018. While previous collaborators of Avicii came together to complete the project, a dedication to Tim’s memory, not all contemporaries feel it best reflects Bergling’s vision. Fellow EDM producer Alesso stated over social media that there are two ways to look at the situation. “It’s great we get to hear what he worked on. But sad cause I feel it would have sounded different if he would have finished it.” (sic)
TIM is released June 8th in Australia and features performances from Imagine Dragons, Bonn and Vargas & Lagola.
