What I Heard This Morning: Sun Boxes

I received an email a couple days ago from Craig Colorusso, (member of a band called, MUUD), about a sound installation called, Sun Boxes. Information is somewhat lacking, but Important Records (Grails, Acid Mother’s Temple, Sic Alps) seems to be sponsoring the event.

Basically, Colorusso sets up twenty speakers, all powered by solar energy, that will each play a different guitar sample as the sun activates them. So, over the course of the day, a composition is generated that an audience can basically walk around and experience from within the “orchestra.”

The installation is taking place this weekend at The North Shore of Boston, Saturday, October 17th.

Were I in the neighborhood, I’d definitely check this out.
