UNSILENT NIGHT – Sunday, December 10th at 7:00 p.m. on the campus of Central Michigan University, starting at the Gazebo just west of the Park Library.

Phil Kline's Unsilent Night is a free outdoor participatory sound sculpture of many individual parts, recorded on mp3s, CDs, and cassettes, and played through a roving swarm of smart phones & boomboxes carried through city streets every December.

Meet at the Gazebo just west of the Park Library. Everyone is welcome and there's no charge for participating. Tim Mocny of the School of Music is your host and can be contacted at mocny1ts@cmich.edu with any questions.

Bring your own playing device 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 a worldwide annual communal event that has become an essential part of many winter holiday celebrations.

MUSIC- Cassettes, CDs and mp3s of the Unsilent Night music are protected by copyright. Visit the “how to participate” page at the website for more details and links to the digital files. Also, 2011 saw the debut of Phil Kline's Unsilent Night app, which is free at the iTunes store and Google Play. With a speaker, your smart phone becomes a boombox!
