Friday Night Sound Sculpture & Candlelight Tunnel Ritual | Golden Gate Park

Johnny Funcheap | FunCheapSF.com

Join “B Together and Listen Deeply” at Golden Gate Park in the tunnel across from the Conservatory of flowers for this interactive sound sculpture and weekly tunnel ritual.

A partnership between visionary conceptual artist Ben Davis, physical interaction designer and sound artist Dan Gottwald, plus many more, this installation is home to lush yet minimalist soundscapes and community music making opportunities.

“B” transforms a mundane place into a sacred space.

Each week through the summer in 2017 & the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love they’ve invited local musical acts to help activate this beautiful sonic space.

Conservatory Valley, across from Conservatory of Flowers

Come and you will be given a candle by volunteers. Reflect on a singular love in your life–an old flame, new flame, or eternal flame. You are also invited to ring one of three custom-made chimes by Dan Gottwald that sound in the note of B. Find the reverberation in your body and hum or chant together.

And in the distance, you can check out the gorgeous light sculpture illuminating the Conservatory of Flowers.

Join the art & sound community in Golden Gate Park in the tunnel across from the Conservatory of flowers for the penultimate evening of this interactive sound sculpture.

  • Pet the Tiger is an SF Bay Area inventors collective that plays in a wide variety of idioms exploring new timbral dimensions through extended techniques, new instruments, xenharmonics and fringe acoustic phenomena.
