An Interactive Holiday Event: "Unsilent Night"
The Mitchell Center collaborates once again with Buffalo Bayou Partnership for this free, interactive holiday event. New York composer Phil Kline created this 43-minute piece, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music that can easily be downloaded on a smart phone upon arrival. When participants play their different parts simultaneously, it helps create the special sound of the piece. Revelers will walk a carefully chosen route along Buffalo Bayou's beautifully lit Sabine Promenade.
