Silent Disco

Curated by DJ Oliver

Sound Installation
The Paseo Project 2016

Special Event

DJ Oliver will curate Silent Disco, which merges three DJ booths and 10 DJs into 500 multi-channel headsets. Party-going dancers will enter alternate sensorial universes by switching to different cultural genres – electronica, Latin, native rap, Afro-pop and world music.

Synopsis: Join your community in dance! We invite you to dance to music listened to on wireless headphones. Rather than using a speaker system, music is broadcast via a radio transmitter with the signal being picked up by wireless headphone receivers available to the participants. The outward displays of luminescent color from the headphones provide a unique visual view to other listeners or other spectators at Paseo Party on the Plaza. Each listener is able to select different channels for different transmission sources and the colored lights indicate the channels listeners have chosen.
