Unsilent Night

Holiday tradition brings art, technology and communities together

Throughout the month of December each year, a number of cities worldwide, presented Unsilent Night to bring music, art, lights and communities together to celebrate the holidays, each in their own unique way.

In Cambridge, Ontario, the one-of-a-kind event brought technology into the mix - featuring still and interactive images, videos and lights enhanced by music tracks, composed by artist Phil Kline, played through portable players carried by the audience.

Christie partnered (in 2008 and 2009) University of Waterloo Architecture Cambridge students to present the complete multi-media performance that the audience viewed as they walked through the streets of historic downtown Cambridge. As well, cameras were used in store fronts aimed at people passing by, allowing them to become part of the display.This harmonious combination of sound and illumination was the first of its kind in any of the worldwide demonstrations of Unsilent Night.
