Sun Boxes in Boynton Beach Florida

Sun Boxes participated in the 4th Biennial International Kinetic Art Exhibit.

February 3 and 4th I was in Boynton Beach talking to lots of great people. There were great artists only a few feet away.

Like my buddy Anthony Castronovo, who collaborated with the delightful Eleonora Nicoletti for Solar Shimmer.





Anthony and I even had some time to play a little pinball.

PI

Using Bass Clarinet and Bb Clarinet it plays a pattern of notes using the Number PI

This is a 20 second sample.  The whole piece can be heard in the app link above on the left.

The number PI is very seductive. The idea of a number that continues forever is very appealing. It makes me think about my breath. It is taken for granted but I will breathe everyday for the rest of my life. A breath every few seconds or so.  What a great way to acknowledge the beauty of PI. Using my own breath with a Bass Clarinet and Clarinet to play a piece that lasts forever. A few minutes of PI presents itself as a hodgepodge of notes that over time this quickly turns into a wash of soothing sounds to dip into.

I like systems.

I like evolution.

I like forever.

I like numbers.

I like impossible.

On August 10, 1996 at noon Joel Westerdale and I presented Tagmusik, a 24 hour piece of  Dr Java’s in Bethel, Connecticut.

Old friends came and joined us

Here is the layout of the piece.

 

Sound Swings Uptown

Sound Swings Uptown are swings that make sound when you swing on them.

Commissioned by Specialized and fabricated by Modus Sudios the Sound Swings Uptown are located by the bike path at Uptown Fayetteville.  Fayetteville, Arkansas.

   

Each Swing has it’s own portion of the composition that plays when activated.  As soon as the swinging stops the composition pauses and resumes when the swinging begins again.  If all three swings were to play for 24/7 the composition would last 55 days. With the coming and going of Swing opertors the possibilities are endless.

I think it sounds best with all three swings going.  But I’ll let you decide.

The Sounds were made with an electric guitar.  Bowed and plucked.
