On June 7 from 6-8pm, Sea Level & The Memorial Skylight will present a full park sound installation – a living moving three dimensional soundscape. As visitors navigate Congress Square Park, they’ll experience in-the-moment individualized and collective musical compositions that are responsive to natural parameters like sunset, humidity, and the activity of people, animals, and insects. The performance will include various musical guests as well as live shadow art accompaniment directed by Ian Bannon of Figures Of Speech Theater.
Sea Level & The Memorial Skylight is the pseudonym of musician/conceptual artist Dan Capaldi. The essence of Sea Level & The Memorial Skylight is a fusion of sampled material/field recordings and tight orchestral compositions, formatted/performed live as a three dimensional sound installation with conscious attention to the evolving trends in human attention and perceived value. Dan studied Drum performance and Film scoring at Berklee College of Music and since has composed music for all varieties of film, live art installations as well as frequently touring the United States and Europe with various groups and as a solo artist.
