dreamSTATE will be performing two sets outdoors at 7pm ET on Saturday May 30th in high-quality stereo sound with General Chaos and other visuals plus the live-outside cameras at Twitch.tv/AMBiENTPiNG.

Between sets will be the premiere of a new drone music video by Dirty Inputs (audio/visual artist Aaron Dawson) and a new drone video from Sara Wray Enns of Victoria, BC.

Once upon a time, long ago, before even THE AMBiENT PiNG was born, Planet Of The Loops achieved earth orbit and colourful sonic auroras began to fill the night skies of Toronto on a regular basis. Founded and led by Andrew Aldridge, the rotating crew of loopers from the Planet spun hours of delicious looping improvisations and always with large helpings of ambience.

A migration from the Planet to the PiNG was a natural flow and all the earliest PiNG performers were Planetary Crew. The PiNG (then weekly) soon began hosting Planet Of The Loops on a monthly basis and their orbital paths were entwined for many years.

For the THE AMBiENT PING's 20th Anniversary show, the Planet was invited back for a night of looping improvisations with a veteran POTL crew selected from the PiNG's 1st year of performances:
Andrew Aldridge - guitar
Wally Jericho (the 1st artist to play the PiNG on Aug. 17th, 1999) - trumpet
Cheryl O - cello
Steven Sauvé - laptop
Scott M2 - modular synth
Jamie Todd - electronics.
