Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night to be Performed Worldwide 

Source: Unsilent Night. In what is becoming a holiday tradition, performances of Phil Kline’s Unsilent Night will take place in cities throughout the world next month.

Phil Kline’s public sound sculpture Unsilent Night is created when many individuals simultaneously play one of four tracks on cassette, mp3, or mobile devices, and blast each through a roving swarm of boomboxes and speakers carried through city streets. Here are some guidelines on how to participate.

5049 Records Episode 186 – Brian Marsella 

Source: 5049 Records.

For episode 186, the fabulously talented and all around good dude, Brian Marsella swings by for a wide-ranging conversation that covers a lot of ground, from dealing with death, to touring in the United States, growing up in Philadelphia and making music in the 21st century. A veteran of the bands of Cyro Baptista and John Zorn, Brian has recently released a series of powerful, smoking records and that highlight his skills as a piano player and a band leader. This is a good one.
