Audiophiles and Christmas geeks unite! Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night offers anyone with a working mobile device or boombox a chance to participate in spreading some holiday musical cheer without having any musical background. Unlike singing traditional Christmas carols and going from door to door, every sound interacts with one another to create a larger piece that is never duplicated quite the same. Attendees just need to show up at Fremont Park (corner of 16th and P streets, Sacramento) on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015, at 7 p.m. after downloading one of four sounds from the Unsilent Night website. From there, a procession of people will walk down Sacramento’s streets while playing the tones through a portable speaker. Since 1992, this 45-minute piece has become quite a sensation with many different cities across the United States participating in this special, aural event. Dress warm and wear some comfortable walking shoes since this winter has already proven itself quite challenging. Do make sure you’re punctual as the sounds of the piece rely on timing. There is no cover charge, but your attention to details (starting and stopping of music, walking pace, etc) will suffice. Come out and join the party at
