The fair revels in all things Edmonton-based and independent. With socialistically low table fees, the Bison aims to be a space for creative endeavours that may otherwise not come to pass for lack of venue.The Bison is enthusiastic about collaborating with individuals and organizations on goings-on of a less retail variety. Art projects and interactive, two-day long exhibits and installations are most welcome.We also try to have a wide selection of items for guys – something we feel is somewhat uncommon in today’s craft fair circuit.

Unsilent Night
Today 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Unsilent Night is an original composition by Phil Kline, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music in the form of a cassette, CD, or Mp3. Together all four tracks comprise Unsilent Night. The fact that the participants play different “parts” simultaneously helps create the special sound of the piece. Participants carry boomboxes, or anything that amplifies music, and simultaneously start playing the music. They then walk a carefully chosen route through their city’s streets, creating a unique mobile sound sculpture which is different from every listener’s perspective.
