Last year, Unsilent Night, Phil Kline's pioneering work of public sound art played on boomboxes carried through city streets, was part of Winter Walk. This year, in partnership with Wave Farm (WGXC), the event is returning to Hudson three weeks after Winter Walk, on Saturday, December 23.
If you were part of the event last year, you will remember that the procession started at the foot of Warren Street and went up to the Public Square. Unfortunately, the length of the route was not equal to the duration of the sound, and participants ended up circling the fountain for twenty minutes or so while the soundscape continued. This year, participants will gather in the Public Square (a.k.a. Seventh Street Park) at 7 p.m. on the evening before Christmas Eve, and Kline himself will lead a march through "Hudson's lesser traveled alleys and enclaves, winding through corridors and byways that shade the city's historic streetscape," on a route that will culminate at Promenade Hill.
