Show Details

The Kentucky Center presents
Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night

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.

Participants will meet on the steps of The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts at 6:30PM sharp and make our way around downtown.

How to participate:

-Connect a portable speaker or homemade sound amplifier to your phone, tablet, etc.

-Visit this link to access the four music tracks. If your last name starts with: A - F, download/stream track #1; G-L download/stream track #2; M-R download/stream track #3; S-Z download/stream track #4.

-Meet in front of The Kentucky Center at the date and time above, and off we go!

A few things to keep in mind:

- Unsilent Night: Louisville will not have cassettes or CDs available upon arrival to The Kentucky Center, so if you prefer to use a boombox system, you'll need to handle those logistics in advance of the event.

- Parking is available in the parking garage under The Kentucky Center or in adjacent lots for a fee.

- Hot cocoa will be available for purchase in SCENE at The Kentucky Center before and after the walk.
- It is encouraged to wear reflective gear and/or festive, portable holiday lights or glow sticks.
