Unsilent Night 2013: Boombox Christmas Parade | Dolores Park
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Dolores Park | 19th Street and Dolores Street, San Francisco, CA
“Unsilent Night” is artist Phil Kline’s free outdoor participatory sound sculpture played through a roving swarm of hundreds of boomboxes carried through the Mission District creating a 44-minute ambient roving electronic Christmas carol of chimes and bells on December 14, 2013.
Hundreds of people bring their own boomboxes and drift peacefully through a cloud of sound which is different from every listener’s perspective in an outdoor ambient music piece that winds throughout the streets of the Mission District.
Curious? Think of it as a block-long stereo system and Christmas parade.
Please note, dates and times may change, especially if there’s rain. Check Unsilent Night website for last minute updates.
