"COOL" is a two hour sound loop by Alan Nakagawa for the Coolhaus Ice cream truck. The sound work is made up of 35 works composed to accompany ice cream eating.
"I wanted to create music for an ice cream truck and ice cream eating. The 35 works are inspired by my memories of eating ice cream as a child from the amplified repetitive melody of a typical truck to personal memories of being on the beach and bike riding. There are also pieces that include field recordings of the kitchens where Coolhaus makes its gelato and cookies. I also recorded cows mooing at Cal Poly Pomona.
This piece was designed for the 2011 Soundwalk in Long Beach CA soundwalk.org
