It is simple really. Music makes you feel better.
We could go into how this is an ‘immersive merging of meditation and music’ and that we are ‘unifying sonics and silence’ (original copy) but in reality, for times like these, who needs more serious?!
These events are in existence due to already serious and strange times.
We are really missing being in venues listening and watching live performances and interacting with the people and spaces we know as enjoyment filled. So, we thought it best to do what we can with the tools we have and invite you along…
We will pick an impeccably produced record we love and play it start to finish on vinyl on the beautiful sound system at Ramsgate Music Hall. The room will be dark to focus your hearing. You will be seated (for safety) with your friends. You will be sipping on a drink that the team feels represents the album. We will add some smells that we feel represent the record. If you choose to meditate through this or sit their Clockwork Orange strapped-eye style tapping toes and grinding jaw is entirely up to you. We do ask that you keep noise to a minimum whilst the record is playing though so not to disturb those around you. We will flip the vinyl/s for natural breaks. If you wish, you and your group can join us at your pre-allocated seats upstairs afterwards for another beverage and chat about your experience of what just happened, memories of the record or about whatever you like – It’s a bar after all! Although please do not have too much fun and definitely be ready to crawl back under your rock for 10pm or the Boris brigade will have your guts for garters.
Back to serious, we all need music and positive (safe) human interaction right now – especially the venue and its staff – so we look forward to seeing some friendly faces old and new in the space love having eargasms.
Till then, keep safe.
