>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Mission Dolores Park | Dolores St., and 19th St., San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
“Unsilent Night” is artist Phil Kline’s participatory sound artwork, an ethereal, electronic soundscape played by the audience on boomboxes carried through city streets.
“Carolers” play one of four tracks of music downloaded to their smartphone, 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.
