Thanks to Craig Colorusso, there is a new sound of music to listen to on his newly released Sun Boxes MP3s and 7″ vinyl. Colorusso has captured the sounds of nature along with sound produced by solar energy from the sun. These meditative sounds will take you back to mother nature’s heart and soul. Have a listen:
About Sun Boxes
Sun Boxes are an environment to enter and exit at will. It’s 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 loops are different in length, once the piece begins they continually overlap and the piece slowly evolves over time.
The sounds of Sun Boxes have been described as both soothing and energizing. A unique combination of adjectives often used to describe yoga, or meditation. When experiencing the piece, Sun Boxes allows the participant to slow down, and notice the subtleties of the composition unfold. With the abundance of technology and hustle of this culture it is a much needed concept to not only be allowed, but also encouraged to slow down.
