UNSILENT NIGHT : SACRAMENTO DETAILS

WHO: You!

WHAT: Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night is a free, outdoor participatory sound sculpture. The composition is created when many individuals of all ages simultaneously play one of four tracks on mobile devices played through a roving swarm of speakers carried through city streets.Since 1992, this 45-minute work has grown into a worldwide annual event, and this year marks the 3rd annual audience-led performance in Sacramento!

WHERE: We'll meet in at the center fountain in Fremont Park (15th & Q Streets, Sacramento) and make our way around town (check our community Facebook page for route updates). Please arrive early so that we may start at 6 p.m.

WHEN: Saturday, December 16, 2017 at 6:00PM until roughly 7:00PM. This event will take place rain or shine or Sacramento-cold.

WHY: “Kline’s luminous, shimmering wash of bell tones is one of the loveliest communal new-music experiences you'll ever encounter, and it's never the same twice.” - Time Out New York
