Sun Boxes by Craig Colorusso is a sound installation of 20 solar-powered speakers that each play a different loop of guitar notes (video). The notes played by each box combine to create a constantly changing musical composition. Colorusso has installed the boxes in outdoor settings around the country. And he’s made an app so anyone can turn their mobile device into a Sun Box.

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.
