Phil Kline's Unsilent Night + Party!
Presented by Seattle Composers' Salon, Nonsequitur, and Joshua Parmenter. 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 project has grown into a worldwide annual communal event that has become an essential part of many winter holiday celebrations. Please join us for this unusual sonic celebration of the Winter Solstice and the Seattle experimental music community.
