Live music with Marco Amadio from 6-8 pm in the Pavilion.
From the artist: “Music is about passion.
Whether playing in the band or doing my solo gigs, it’s about people and passion.
I love to sing in English, Italian or Spanish. Each language has it’s own unique characteristics and takes me to a different place mentally and musically.

I can only hope to convey what I feel to the audience. Only then will I have done what singers/musicians set out to do. Inspiring others to feel good about life, love or even bring back precious memories, is a true gift from above.”

Interactive performance by Martin Freeman titled “Heretical Potato Synthesizers.”
See 10 potato synthesizers wired up with the goal of producing a dense cluster of sound that would change as viewers walk around the room, tilt their heads, etc., but at relatively low sound levels. As the batteries slowly drain and the temperatures of the potatoes change, the behavior of the circuits will slowly change. We will encourage audience members to walk around and interact with the electronic potato assemblages by plugging/unplugging in wires, clutching the potatoes to alter their electrical characteristics, to alter the flow of the piece.
