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 two performances will take place at a single location within the park with magnificent views of Downtown LA and Chinatown as the backdrop for the musical soundscapes. Music will begin at 5:00 pm and finish at 7:00 pm promptly.

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.


The Growth Eternal is the musical project of Tulsa, Oklahoma native Byron Crenshaw – a descendant of Black Wall Street pioneers. Currently residing in Los Angeles, the jazz bassist, vocodorist, producer/songwriter/composer, artist and activist presents PARASAiL-18, his debut full-length album.

Qur’an Shaheed is a pianist, poet, singer and songwriter based in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, CA. She has been playing piano since the age of four, trained extensively in jazz, classical and contemporary music through the expertise of her mother Sharon Shaheed and grandmother Monique Simpson. Since 2012 she has been developing her practice as a songwriter alongside her solo piano and ensemble work. She released the album Process, with producer Jesse Justice and Preference Records, in 2020 and regularly performs in and around Los Angeles. Her sound is innovative, highly personal and experimental, incorporating elements of improvisation as well as neo-classical and neo-soul techniques. Shaheed often collaborates with others and has worked with Koreatown Oddity, filmmaker Vashni Korin and the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra (of which her father Nolan Shaheed is also a member). She is the keyboardist for Jimetta Rose’s gospel choir The Voices of Creation. In 2020 she paired up with Chloe Scallion for dublab + Femmebit’s The Art of Performance programme, was interviewed by KCRW for their Private Playlist series and featured in a special mixtape project by waltz for Gucci Shibuya Parco in Tokyo. Shaheed is also engaged in composing for moving image and film scoring, particularly drawn to projects that reflect on society, history and unifying acts.
