phil kline’s Unsilent Night - In Person

Phil Kline’s outdoor holiday classic

— a unique mobile sound sculpture —
takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer

Present Music
will be hosting Milwaukee's 1st annual Unsilent Night on Dec. 1 at 5:30pm with its walk originating from (and circling back to) Saint Kate - The Arts Hotel (139 E Kilbourn Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53202).

Unsilent Night is an original composition by Phil Kline, written specifically to be heard outdoors in December. Kline's luminous 4-track surround soundscape will be performed by the public on smartphones and bluetooth speakers carried throughout downtown Milwaukee, including a scenic jaunt along the Riverwalk and through neighboring parks. Present Music founder and former artistic director, Kevin Stalheim, will serve as bandleader and lead participants along a pre-determined route.

Each participant plays just one of the four tracks from their personal device––the magic begins when the crowd hits PLAY, all at the same time!

How To Participate:

1. Follow these instructions to prepare your instrument - Mobile App recommended!
2. If you own a portable bluetooth speaker, bring it along to amplify your instrument
3. Dress warmly and in comfortable shoes for the 2-mile walk (approx. 45 min in length)
