“Sonic Runway” Closing Night & Burning Man Block Party | San Jose
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
San Jose City Hall | 200 East Santa Clara St, San Jose, CA
The City of San Jose and Burning Man Project invite you to celebrate the closing ceremony of Sonic Runway, an audio-activated, light-based art installation by Rob Jensen and Warren Trezevant.
Sonic Runway is a tunnel of extremely blinky arches that converts audio signals into a pattern of lights that shoots down the tunnel at the speed of sound (1225 kph / 761 mph). From one end of the Runway, you can see the music racing away from you. On the other, you can see it coming at you and hear it reach you in sync with the patterns.
The effect is pretty nuts. In San José, the Sonic Runway is 432 feet long and stretches across two city blocks.

Sonic Runway is the first installation made possible through a partnership between the City of San Jose and Burning Man Project called Playa to Paseo. An instigation of art for the downtown core and beyond, Playa to Paseo, is an invitation to play, engage, and participate in artmaking citywide.
