Experience Live Music In 100% Darkness...

without the distraction of your visual-conditioning, social etiquette & cell phones!

The Blind Cafe Music In The Dark Experience is something that gives music freaks a completely new way to enjoy and appreciate live music, kind of the same way that MTVs Unplugged did back in the day… but Concerts in the Dark, makes Unplugged seem like child’s play.

The Blind Cafe ~ Music In The Dark Experience

The Blind Cafe ~ Music In The Dark Experience is an unparalleled live 'music experience' held in 100% darkness, no blindfolds! Without the distraction of our visual conditioning, social etiquettes & cell phones, music experienced in 100% darkness allows the audience to remember what is was like to truly listen and feel...music again.

I actually cried during your song ‘Transcend’ which is not something I would not have let myself do, if I knew that people could see me. But knowing that I was invisible, it was much easier to let my emotions flow and that felt SO healthy! It was also nice to end on a higher emotional note with everyone singing and standing together. Our table was all holding hands and swaying too! I walked out of there with such a happy full heart!

Active Music Listening 

How to actively listen to music! 

You'll be guided through an active music listening experience in the dark @ The Blind Cafe Experience. But for now you can learn/practice on your own to gain more awareness and get ready for the music in the dark experience at your next Blind Cafe.

 
 

Step One: Good Headphones & Good Music

Get yourself a pair of good head phones (or just use earbuds if you must). Choose a song from music that moves you emotionally and cue the song in your music player. 

Step Two: Find A Quiet Spot 

Find your self a quiet spot for 30 minutes, where you can lay on the floor on your back or on a yoga mat. ( If you can't find quiet spot or just feeling antsy, you can do this walking.) Turn off your cell phones internet, alarms etc. 100% and lay down with finger on the play play button! 

Step Three: Listen to Silence & Then Music

Ready yourself to 'press play' but don't just yet! Wait 5-10 seconds...and take several deep breathes, (allowing yourself to listen to the space and silence...) now press play! Your going to listen to the same song (3) times. Just listen to the song and notice what happens when you listen to music, paying attention to how the music makes you feel. 

Step Four: Listen Again & Notice Depth

Listen to the song for a second time now and start to notice what you weren't paying attention to during the first listen. What instrumentation, melodies or lyrics did you notice this time through? Now listen a third time and discover how much more you notice, feel or evening parts you don't feel moved by.
