As for Unsilent Night: “Composer Phil Kline will lead a massive chorus of boomboxes from the West Village to the East Village in the 26th annual holiday presentation of Unsilent Night. People gather at the arch in Washington Square Park, and less than an hour and mile later, end up in Tompkins Square Park.” The public is “encouraged to bring their own boomboxes or sound-blasters” although a limited number of “vintage boomboxes” will be available. Pre-download the track or just come listen and participate.
