Collective Effervescence: Sound Emotion with Silk Music
On Saturday, April 20, PROPA Productions is set to explore the energy and emotion that overtakes the dance floor when people come together under the open sky to enjoy true electronic dance music.
“A Party” is of a piece with what French sociologist Émile Durkheim called “collective effervescence.” According to Durkheim and any video you see of a PROPA party, when people start moving in a shared, directed experience, a current of excitement starts pulsing through them. In his overview of Durkheim’s work, University of Montreal researcher Paul Carls writes that “This impersonal, extra-individual force, transports the individuals into a new, ideal realm, lifts them up outside of themselves, and makes them feel as if they are in contact with an extraordinary energy,” one that leads to a “high degree of collective emotional excitement or delirium”.
At PROPA we believe this is why we hitting the dance floor every weekend. We believe we are aware of the emotion we usually just refer to as “the vibe”. We believe that every party should be made with this intention, to bring people together in an effort to connect and belong, not just to each other, yet more importantly, to ourselves.
The festival series itself will produce at least 4 uniquely curated events that will guide us into all those good vibes and heart pulses that help create this unification of joy and happiness, we know as Collective Effervescence.
There wasn’t much question in who we wanted to host and kick off this journey of emotions into sound…
Kicking of our serious is Los Angels – based imprint Silk Music, focused on emotive and intelligent electronic music. Silk Music’s goal is to showcase inspiring and visionary new progressive, house, trance, breakbeat, and chillout tracks.
The PROPA creative team spends a lot of time vetting and scouting unique and interesting venue locations to produce one of a kind elevated music experiences. When we come across one that promises a patio with a working 50-foot-tall Ferris wheel, we get excited.
We are happy to announce, Ferris Wheeler’s as our location for “Sound Emotion”. Located in the hip and trendy Design District off Market Center Blvd, Ferris Wheeler’s is a beautiful and massive adult’s playground. With our beloved city’s skyline as a backdrop, sitting right off the Trinity River corridor, this 7,000 square foot patio is the perfect setting for a day festival with our FAM to dance into the night with the music we love!!!
