“Phil Kline’s boom box-chorale parade has become a bona fide holiday tradition. His luminous, shimmering wash of bell tones is one of the loveliest communal new-music experiences you’ll ever encounter & it's never the same twice.” Time Out NY


Biography

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 annually. 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 an annual communal event that has become an essential part of many winter holiday celebrations around the world.
