A symphony of sounds for the sunset

Posted by Geeky Swedes on July 28th, 2011

Seattle composer Nat Evans has created a piece of work specifically for sunset at Carkeek Park on Saturday evening. The 23-minute piece fuses nature, music, community, and subjectivity of experience, he says. It’s an interesting concept – go to his website and download the music onto your ipod/mp3 player ahead of time then get to the beach by 8:30 p.m. At 8:37 p.m., exactly 10 minutes before sunset, Evans will give the cue to press play and participants will sit back and observe while listening.

“The music, a piece entitled Assemblage, is a mix of new and pre-existing compositions that have been arranged to best compliment the changing of light at the pivotal moment of Sunset,” Evans tells us.

It looks as if Mother Nature might cooperate. The forecast calls for sunshine with temps in the upper 70s.

He is also doing this in other parts of the country, including Chicago on August 4th, Indianapolis on August 7th and New York on August 21st.
