UnSilent Night

Friday, November 30, 2018, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

UnSilent Night
close

Meet in Washington Park at the Gazebo
Rain date: Saturday, December 1

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.

Schedule of Events:

5–6PM:
Drinks and revelry on The Porch at Washington Park

6PM: Unsilent Night begins at the Washington Park Gazebo

6:45–8PM: Unsilent Night ends at Washington Park Gazebo with post-walk drinks and revelry

*Rain date – Saturday, December 1


"Phil Kline's postmodern boombox caroling walk is more than just performance art: It's a demonstration of community" - Time Out New York

"A marvelously fluid, traveling spatial sound sculpture that disintegrates and reforms at nearly every stop light. This is a holiday tradition that could give new music a good name" - The Village Voice

"Unsilent Night immerses the listener in suspended wonderment, as if time itself had paused inside a string of jingle bells" - The New York Times
