Tickets for this FREE event can be reserved here

Since 1992, this 45-minute work has grown into a worldwide annual communal event that has become an essential part of many winter holiday celebrations. Join us for its first performance in North Adams! On Thursday, December 4 we’ll begin at 5:15pm in the MASS MoCA parking lot for an introduction by composer Phil Kline. Immediately following, the group will proceed on a 40-minute walk through downtown North Adams, concluding at MCLA Gallery 51 for the opening of Art to Go, their annual affordable art show.

Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night is a free outdoor participatory sound sculpture of many individual parts, recorded on cassettes, CDs, mp3s, and the Unsilent Night app, and played through a roving swarm of boomboxes carried through city streets every December. Bring a boombox or other music-amplifying device and drift peacefully through a cloud of sound, which is different from every listener’s perspective.
