Unsilent Night is coming

This is one of the best things that happens in NYC. I did this maybe four years ago with Zweig and we were blown away. Check out all them boom boxes.

This is from a Brooklyn Vegan Andrew Frisicano

Phil Kline - From Light (MP3)

Phil Kline's Unsilent Night is a free outdoor participatory sound sculpture of many individual parts, recorded on cassettes, CDs and mp3s, and played through a roving swarm of boomboxes carried through city streets every December. People bring their own boomboxes and drift peacefully through a cloud of sound which is different from every listener's perspective. Since 1992, this 45-minute work has grown into a worldwide annual communal event that has become an essential part of many winter holiday celebrations
The performance, in its 18th year, will happen in 13 North American cities (as of now) this year - with events planned abroad too. Full list of locations below. The Unsilent Night material is available on CD through Cantaloupe Records.

This year's Unsilent Night New York will happen on Saturday, December 12th. The group starts at the Arch in Washington Square Park at 7pm and walks to Tompkins Square Park (approx. by 8pm). The track posted above, 'From Light,' is meant to accompany the group's 'arriving in the quiet of the East Village, 7th Street to Second Avenue.'
