Denver: Unsilent Night premieres Dec. 16

Phil Kline's Unsilent Night will take place in Denver for the first time on Dec. 16.

Unsilent Night is Kline's free outdoor participatory sound sculpture of many individual parts, recorded on cassettes, CD's and mp3's, and played through a roving swarm of boomboxes carried through city streets every December. People bring their own boomboxes and drift peacefully through a moving surround-sound environment which is different from every listener's perspective.

Since its debut in 1992 in New York, Unsilent Night has become a cult holiday tradition, drawing crowds of up to 1,500 participants. It has also grown into a worldwide annual event that has been presented in over 45 cities and on three continents.

The New York Times writes, "Unsilent Night immerses the listener in suspended wonderment, as if time itself had paused inside a string of jingle bells.”

The Denver Pavilions lists this info:
Wed, 16th Dec, 5:00pm
Start: 5:00 PM at Denver Pavilions (North Plaza entrance)
End: 6:00 PM

Boulder's recent Unsilent Night was a big success, and we wish the best to this inaugural Denver event.
