Sun Boxes is comprised of twenty speakers operating independently, each powered by the sun via solar panels.  There is a different loop set to play a guitar note in each box continuously.  These guitar notes collectively make a Bb chord.  Because the lops are different in length, once the piece begins they continuously overlap and it slowly evolves over time.  The sounds of Sun Boxes has been described as both soothing and energizing.


CUBEMUISC 
6 Aluminum Cubes that emit sound and light.  The piece transforms the space into a web of sound, light and shadows. If Sun Boxes were considered the daytime piece, CUBEMUSIC is definitely the nighttime piece. This is the second timne CUBEMUSIC has been outside.

Ladybug Cathedral was originally composed for the Delaware Art Museum as a 5 hour piece for bowed guitar.  The piece has evolved since and for The Momentary there will be 3 one hour sections played on the green.

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.

Sound + Light in Quincy, IL

September 28, 2018 to November 2, 2018 CUBEMUSIC and INSTALL were presented at Quincy Art Center while Sun Boxes toured the city.

I met a ton of very cool people.

They even fed me great Italian Food.

There were Cameras

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.
