The First Ever Safe Sounds Show in 360° - World News Are Back

Safe Sounds presents...

WORLD NEWS in 360° with BLUE LIGHT and PROVINCIAL PARCS.

We might not be the first to do a show like this... U2 famously coined the 360° Tour a few years back when they crafted a unique stage that was surrounded by the audience. After a few calls with Bono and The Edge, they've very kindly given this their blessing!

In what will be a very special intimate show at Bar Orwell in Toronto on Thursday 17th November, all three acts will perform live hardware sets from underneath the mirror ball! Surrounded by the audience, this will be a true 360° electronic music experience.

World News have brand new music and a brand new lineup to keep you entertained. It's going to be spicy and electronic.

Blue Light will bring their unique blend of cinematic electronic wash. It will rock you to your very core!

Provincial Parcs will add a psychedelic jazz heart to proceedings. The rig, which was first used for the Geary Art Crawl show, will be back bigger and better!

Bar Orwell is a limited capacity venue at 1595 Dundas Street West. Early Bird Tickets are on sale now for the measly price of just $10. It's going to be more on the door, so grab yours now to cement your place!

Toronto Ambient Producer 'Blue Light' Performs Live from the Safe Sounds Bank Vault

We've got the inside scoop ~ Toronto-based ambient producer, Blue Light, released a stirring EP in May entitled DARK DARK NIGHT. It's three tracks that will keep you grounded and awash with bliss.

That's right; here at Safe Sounds we're committed to promoting different genres of music, so in addition to your "wham bam thank you mam" kinda stuff from heavy hitters Theo Vandenhoff and Idious Carrie, our aim is to provide a platform for other sounds that we care about. Toronto is such an excellent place for experimental music, both as a musician and within a scene of gracious listeners.

Back in another world, in another time, on February 6th 2020, Blue Light visited the Safe Sounds bank vault. Two of the three tracks have previously been released, but today we're sharing an unheard version of 'Out of This Dark Dark Night' for the very first time!

Watch it below ~

Ambient music is a term first coined by Brian Eno; one and only; the forever saviour of feeling in music. Who else would have the audacity to create an entire genre of music? For those who aren't familiar, ambient music plays with conscious vs subconscious listening. Put simply, we're very much used to conscious listening, but the subconscious side offers the ability for you to focus on other things and simply let the music wash into your psyche. Why listen to your music, when you can breathe it?

If you've attended any of the Bill Cutbill AMAZONAS shows, you might have experienced this very thing there. After all, how much jungle soundscape can you consciously think about, and how long does it take to start to wash over you like never ending waves hitting a pebble beach?

Support Blue Light now on bandcamp. DARK DARK NIGHT was produced and mixed by Alessandro Carlevaris (who you should know as the shaggy haired axe wielding protagonist of Toronto psych rockers, Hot Garbage). It was mixed by Toronto pioneer Ian McPhedran.

All proceeds up to $200 will be going to The Fund for Native Children and Families through Canada Helps.

If you have enjoyed these sessions, you should head over to our YouTube channel where you'll find all sort of different golden nuggets.
