Unsilent Night 2014: Boombox Christmas Parade | Dolores Park

Saturday, December 13, 2014 - 7:00 pm | Cost: FREE
Dolores Park | 19th Street and Dolores Street, San Francisco, CA



Unsilent Night 2014: Boombox Christmas Parade | Dolores ParkUnsilent 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.

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.
