In what has become a cult holiday tradition, Phil Kline goes "electronic caroling" through the streets of Greenwich Village with a parade of boomboxes. Kline creates a euphoric blend of other-worldly voices and bells. Unsilent Night is the first recording of this 21st century ritual. Perfect as an avant-garde stocking stuffer!
"Every year since 1992 I've presented Unsilent Night, an outdoor ambient music event for an INFINITE number of boomboxes. It's like a Christmas caroling party except that we don't sing, but rather carry boom boxes, each playing a separate tape or CD which is part of the piece. In effect, we become a city-block-long stereo system." - Phil Kline
"It immerses a listener in suspended wonderment, as if time itself had paused within a string of jingling sleigh bells."
- Jon Pareles, The New York Times
"It's rare when a record for the season also makes a bid for record of the year."
- K. Leander Williams, Time Out NY
