Time to dust off those boom boxes, laptops, Mp3 players, iPhone's and iPad....its time to sign up for Unsilent Night at Left Foot Charley!
Unsilent Night is a free, outdoor participatory sound sculpture of many individual parts played through a roving swarm of boom boxes, mp3 players, iPhones, iPads (Unsilent night app is available at iTunes store) and laptop computers; all carried through a cloud of sound which is different from every listener’s perspective.
Each person is asked to bring their own boom box, laptop, iPhone/iPad or other portable musical device to carry along the walk through The Village at Grand Traverse Commons property. Reservations are required. Upon reserving your spot you will receive the link information for downloading to your mp3 or a cassette/CD will be held on reserve for you at Left Foot Charley to be picked up at the event. Dress for the weather.
If you don't have a portable music player, you are still more than welcome to participate in the walk and hear the music. However, the more boom boxes there are, the better the piece sounds and the better the experience for all involved.
The sculpture will begin at 6:00pm. Please plan to devote 45 minutes to this musical walk through and about The Village grounds. The sound sculpture will conclude at Left Foot Charley Winery for free hot cider, cookies, and live music
