Join in this moving piece of composer Phil Kline's musical performance art, where participants walk around with boomboxes or other personal speakers, playing parts of the piece. They're calling it a "caroling party," as the participants are creating a roving band of cheer-bringers, but without any singing. The sounds of bells echoes off of cars and buildings creates a uniquely urban acoustic effect, and the progressive movement of the crowd twists the "carol" through several neighborhoods. Here's how the evening will go, per the event organizers:
ROUND ONE: At 6pm we will begin with an opening reception at iMoca in Fountain Square (1043 Virginia Ave). From 6:30pm to 7:15pm the music will wind around Fountain Square eventually proceeding to a conclusion at Grove Haus (1001 Hosbrook St.)
ROUND TWO: We re-gather at 410 Massachusetts Ave. for round two starting at 8pm (this is the small park in front of BRU at the intersection Mass. Ave, Alabama St., and Vermont St.)
You’ll be given a copy of the music to play (CD or cassette), or bring an iPhone/iPad with the free Unsilent Night Apple App Store download (larger/louder stereos are preferred).
