Getting out of my college years is one of the best things that has happened to me. This means I’am not under undue pressure to be one of the cool kids and be seen at all the parties in town. I have always been fussy about attending events or parties. One of the reasons being Bangalore has a bizarre 11:30 deadline. Unless a really interesting phenomena in the name of party is occurring I refuse to go.
When Style.in asked me if I wanted to attend the Silent Noise part at Opus Bangalore, I wanted to get of my pajamas and head out to Opus. Silent party was like an urban legend to me, had never been to one. The logic behind a silent party is, there are 3 DJs playing music through out the night. Each of them are color coded and the guests are all given headphones, which is the only of source of music via the the DJs. You change channels on your headphones and tune into the color/DJ of your choice.
A bunch of us headed to Opus. The stage was set with each of the three DJs representing a particular genre of music color coded in blue, green and red. Three different kinds of music were made available on a single platform ensuring everybody’s taste was catered to. At one point same music was playing in 2 different channels but mixed so very differently. It was as if you were connecting with their personalities. I was uberly fascinated to see how all of us were grooving in sync even if we were not listening to the same channel. Plus the whole excitement of discovering a song on one channel and immediately asking everyone else to tune in to the same and having our moment right there was a fabulous experience.
Unlike regular parties where everything is loud and having a conversation means having to scream your lungs out. Here all you had to do was simply take off your headphones talk all you want without damaging your vocal cords and put on your headphones when music is calling.
