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 three performances by Nailah Hunter, Adee Roberson, and No Translation 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 5:15 pm and will end at approximately 6:30 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.


Nailah Hunter is a Caribbean American experimental composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles, CA. Inspired by high fantasy & nature magic, she creates immersive sonic worlds for rest and rumination with harp, layered vocals, and glistening synths.

Adee Roberson was born in West Palm Beach, Florida in 1981.  Her work is a meditation on symbolism and texture. In the form of performance and installation, her work melds vibration and technicolor visions through paintings and melodic compositions. These works offer a refracted timeline of black diasporic movement, weaving sonic and familial archives, with landscape, rhythm, form, and spirit.

No Translation is the solo project of Emma Palm, a Southern California based ambient electronic musician and visual artist with Taiwanese roots. Her music often collages synths, field recordings, and vocals that sonically explore the beauty, melancholy, and ambiguous nature of personal experience with environments, relationships, and memories.

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!

There are several all-gender public restrooms and portapotties on site.
