Unsilent Night 2010: Boombox Christmas Parade | SF
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Submitted by the Event Organizer
“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.
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.
Think of it as a block-long stereo system and Christmas parade!
How to Participate in Unsilent Night
The event begins at the North East corner of Dolores Park (near the tennis coursts) at 7:30pm. Bring your own boombox, laptop or pod with speakers. There will be cassette tapes and CDs available for handout. We recommend you arrive a few minutes early.
Download Unsilent Night MP3: As the date gets closer, there will be MP3s you can download from the Unsilent Night website.
