Silent dating parties

In August 2008, the first silent Battle of the Bands was held at The Barfly music venue in Cardiff.The event featured bands going directly head-to-head, with a stage at each end of the venue, allowing gig-goers to choose which group they wished to listen to.The first event, organised by London-based artists Ben Cummins (also founder of Pillow Fight Club) and Emma Davis, was at London's Liverpool Street Station in September 2003.By the end of 2008 there had been more than twenty of these events at similar venues throughout London, mostly train station concourses or other public spaces that lend themselves to expressive dancing and rapid dispersal.Another type of silent party, known as mobile clubbing, involves the gathering of a group of people in an unconventional location to dance to music which they provide themselves via a portable music device, such as an MP3 player, listened to on headphones.These flash mob gatherings may involve hundreds of people, transforming public spaces into temporary clubbing areas, in which dancers listen to their personal playlists.The concept was used by eco-activists in the early 1990s, utilizing headphones at outdoor parties to minimize noise pollution and disturbance to the local wildlife.In 1994, the Glastonbury Festival linked its on-site radio station to the video screen sited next to the Main Stage, allowing festival goers to watch late night World Cup football and music videos on the giant screen after the sound curfew by using their own portable radios.

Title: Silent Dating | Quiet Parties with Silent Dating Description:Interested in finding out more about Silent Dating?In the earliest days of silent discos, before 2005, there would be only one channel available to listen to music through.Over time, the technology moved along to where there were two, and later technology allowed for a third channel that three separate DJs could broadcast over at the same time.Rather than using a speaker system, music is broadcast via a radio transmitter with the signal being picked up by wireless headphone receivers worn by the participants.Those without the headphones hear no music, giving the effect of a room full of people dancing to nothing.To an observer it would appear that the participants are dancing for no apparent reason.Mobile clubbing events are organized using mass-emails, word-of-mouth or social networking websites such as Facebook, or a combination of these methods.Their first performance, The Gingerbread House, took the audience from The Courtyard, Hereford on a journey through a multi-storey car park in the centre of Hereford.In 2010, their second show, Locked (Rapunzel’s Lament), took place in a children’s playground, also in Hereford.Theatre and performance companies are now beginning to exploit silent disco technology as well.In 2009, with the help of Silent Arena Ltd, Feral Productions began using an experimental approach – a mixture of narrative-led performance, sound art and guided exhibit.
