Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night

Unsilent Night is an original work by New York composer 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. Participants carry boomboxes, or anything that amplifies music, and walk a carefully chosen route through their city’s streets, creating a unique mobile sound sculpture which is different from every listener’s perspective.
