Clockshop’s quarterly Listening By Moonrise program returns to LA State Historic Park, featuring performances and immersive sound experiences with leading multi-disciplinary sound artists. On the eve of the full moon (or as close to it), this program offers listeners moments of reflection, connection, and joy while experiencing music and sound collectively within the context of a community-centered green space.

For Listening By Moonrise, the four performances by Angela Frances Wilson, Pauline Lay, Patrick Shiroishi and Kathryn Shuman will be stationed in different locations throughout the park as pop-up musical experiences, and will perform for small groups following physical distancing protocols. Unlike past Listening by Moonrise events, this event is not ticketed or guided. When attendees arrive at the Clockshop check-in table they will be given a map of the park and where the performances are located. Music will begin at 6:00 pm and will end at approximately 7:30 pm. Attendees are welcome to wander the park and listen to music at their own pace, and will not be separated into designated groups.

This event is free and open to the public. Clockshop suggests a $5 donation to support our Reading and Listening by Moonrise series at LA State Historic Park.


Pauline Lay is an instrumentalist, composer, and events organizer in Los Angeles. Apart from her solo improvised violin and electronics performances, she performs and collaborates with other musicians in varying iterations and genres from duets to larger ensembles.

Patrick Shiroishi is a Japanese-American composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles. Embracing experimental collaboration, he explores sounds in both free improvisational and compositional environments to remember Japanese-American history and evoke the love and complexity of family.

Kathryn Shuman is an experimental vocalist and composer who weaves widely varying vocal, synthesized and everyday life sounds to create spacious sonic environments. Her broad musical interests include microtonal tuning systems, improvisation, medieval chant and the 20th-century avant-garde.

Angela Frances Wilson is a Los Angeles born composer, with a practice built at the intersection of healing art, and improvisational music. Using modern digital and analog mediums, she explores liminal sonic space as an expansion of self and reality.

Los Angeles State Historic Park is located at 1245 N Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90012, directly adjacent to Chinatown and the Metro Gold Line. The park is located just 1 mile away from Los Angeles Union Station, making it accessible from several Metro routes. We highly recommend using public transportation, rideshare, biking, or carpooling. Please note that chairs are not provided for this event. 

There is paid parking at 1501 N Spring Street, the main parking lot of the park, at $2/hour, up to $8 daily. For Clockshop events, the park opens some sections of overflow parking on the exterior of the park in front of Spring Street that is free, first come-first served. We will post signs in the sections that are open for parking. There is also free street parking around the park. Please avoid parking near residential homes on the east side of Main Street and give yourself plenty of time to park and walk over!
