About the event:

‘Sea Music’ has been positioned on Poole Quay as a focal point for the last 25 years. Designed to evoke the sound and appearance of the cascading sea through interlocking rings and curves, with central vertical planes recalling the masts and sails of the ships, ‘Sea Music’ is an early example of Caro’s ‘sculpitecture’.
