Phil Kline Workshop

Make Music New York and MATA have announced a new Call-For-Proposals for a workshop, led by Phil Kline, to explore new participatory outdoor soundworks. Ten composers will be chosen for the workshop, which will discuss feasibility, creativity, and public art in general. The workshop will take place on May 10 during the 2011 MATA Festival, and will be open to the public.

In the month after the workshop, participating composers will refine their ideas and submit revised proposals. Each proposal will be showcased on the MATA website, and MATA will choose one to produce in December 2011, as part of a new winter festival, MAKE MUSIC WINTER, inspired by Phil Kline’s legendary Unsilent Night.

The proposal deadline is April 1, 2011. Click here for more info.

Kline's only surround sound recording, Around the World in a Daze, was commissioned and released by Starkland. Over a dozen publications such as The New York Times, Stereophile, and The New Yorker have called this DVD "sensational... ear-opening adventures... extraordinary" and much more.
