New Classical Featured Artist – 12/07/20 – 12/20/20
As the Christmas holiday approaches, we wanted to get you in the spirit in a new way. Composer Phil Kline came up with a unique way of Christmas caroling in 1992 where he made the audience become the performer. Phil Kline composed four tracks of music that each participant gets in the form of a CD, cassette, or mp3. Every participant gets a different track and the tracks are meant to be played at the same time, creating a unique mobile sound sculpture that is different from every listener’s perspective. Participants can use whatever they want to amplify the tracks. Once the music is started, the participants walk their carefully chosen route through their city’s streets. The four tracks are called Unsilent Night. Since its premiere in 1992, it has become an annual holiday tradition in cities around the world. While this year might be different for safety precautions, we’ll still bring you the music of Unsilent Night here on Classical Music Indy Streaming.
