Unsilent Night 2016: Boombox Christmas Parade | Mission Dolores Park
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Mission Dolores Park | Dolores St., San Francisco, CA
“Unsilent Night” is artist Phil Kline’s free outdoor participatory sound sculpture played through smartphones and boomboxes where the audience becomes the performer.
“Carolers” play one of four tracks of music downloaded to their smart phone, or anything that amplifies music, together comprising “Unsilent Night.” The public ensemble will walk a carefully chosen route through San Francisco, creating a unique mobile sound sculpture.
Everyone presses “play” at the same time and revelers hit the streets surrounded in a wash of beautiful noise and holiday ambiance.
