Phil Kline’s UNSILENT NIGHT 2015Dec 19
FREE 5:00PM • On the Boards

Join us for a holiday walk through the Seattle streets, accompanied by gorgeous electronica played on iPhones and boomboxes. Fun for the whole family, children of all ages welcome to participate. No musical experience necessary.
“immerses the listener in suspended wonderment, as if time itself had paused inside a string of jingle bells” – The New York Times
“Carolers” merely need to download the Unsilent Night app and bring a portable device to play the tracks. Or dust off your boombox, download one of the four tracks, get it on a cassette or CD, and rock it old school. Everyone presses PLAY at the same time and revelers hit the streets surrounded in a wash of beautiful noise and holiday ambiance.
Unsilent Night marries composer Phil Kline’s love of electronic music and memories of Midwest Christmas caroling. This piece is performed all over the world with up to 1500 participants in some cities. Join us as we become a roving surround-sound stereo system. Learn more about this piece, listen to excerpts, and read glowing press reviews.
