Animal Party Live from Safe Sounds
Animal Party came and recorded a live session with us last year, and today is the day we finally share it with you all!
The project of experimental electronic solo artist Sinéad Rua, this twelve minute music extravaganza also features accompaniment by Paul Geldart on drums. Animal Party is a wonder on harp - it must be seen to be believed.
Watch it now!
It really was a pleasure to experience this live in the room - Animal Party are so awesome at what they do and to be able to capture it in such fidelity is highly satisfying. The result is jaw droppingly beautiful.
And what about these 35mm shots from the session taken by Desiree Das Gupta...
When you watch the video, you may notice that this was filmed in November 2022. That is correct, so perhaps a moment to explain why it took so long for us to release this work of art...
Well, we're currently running this operation without funding, which means it really is a labour of love.
That certainly made us realise how much work it is to create this content from beginning to end, because it's easy to underestimate how much time it takes to mix, edit and properly release that number of videos!
And whilst we have been inundated with interest from a whole bunch of super talented bands and artists who want to do a live session with Safe Sounds, we just wanted to take a moment to thank them for their interest but to also place on record that we will not be filming any new live sessions now until at least the middle of next year.
Hopefully we can get some funding to run this as a more regular thing - keep your fingers crossed for us!
That said, don't you worry - we've got more live sessions in the can that we will be releasing in the coming months. ;) So make sure you go subscribe to our YouTube Channel!
But yes, this is all about community. We hope by capturing magical musical moments like this from Animal Party that we're impacting our local scene in a positive manner.
