A new Sydney concert attraction sends listeners swept away by the sounds of electronic music.
In this case, we mean “adrift” literally. The only place to hear music is in “Floors Of Heaven: Submersive Study” than underwater.
Electronic music artist Leon Vynehall soundtracked the event, performed at Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool in Woolloomooloo Bay, to the soothing sounds of ambient music. Attendees floated on the water with their ears dipped; their only way of exposing the sounds of Vynehall, whose ambient serenade is broadcast through a special underwater sound system.
Attendees drifted peacefully, leaning on pool noodles for flotation assistance, for 45 minutes while enjoying an ethereal atmospheric view from above. The early evening show illuminated a gradient of colors above as the sun set over the 50-meter pool.
As with the purpose of the sensory deprivation float tank, Vynehall says its purpose is to awaken a euphoric state of relaxation through experience. “I hope to create something that is almost a meditative state for the audience,” he said.
A cursory survey of attendees by The Keeper noticed that the only drawback was the weather. They noticed that warmer conditions were likely to further enhance the experience.
The “Floors Of Heaven” experience will run until January 9 as part of the ongoing Syndey Festival. You can find out more HERE.
