On Art: “Unsilent Night” hits the streets of St. Albert

The St. Albert Public Library invites you to be part of a moving sound sculpture on the longest night of the year.

“Unsilent Night uses music to create an immersive, ever-changing piece of art where the audience is the performer,” says Ashley King, Children’s Services Coordinator at St. Albert Public Library. “It’s easy to take part—each participant chooses one of four parts of the recorded Unsilent Night music. The magic begins when we all hit ‘Play’ at the same time, then walk together downtown.”

Monday at 8:45 AM (MT) on Alberta Morning, CKUA’s Tony King talked with Ashley King, and Unsilent Night composer Phil Kline, about the long-running holiday tradition that was first brought to life on the streets of Greenwich Village in 1992.
