Port Blue is a side project of Adam Young, formed in 2006. Young classifies it as his second most-acclaimed project. Port Blue has a different music aesthetic to that of Owl City, the most distinctive differences are that Port Blue music has no lyrics (exempt from film speech extracts), and Port Blue focuses more on 'dreamscapes' and imagination rather than morals and meaning behind lyrics.
Despite Port Blue's first release being in 2006, works such as The Pacific (EP) and How I Became A Sky Sailor were first created by Young in 2004-2005.
A new album has been anticipated by Port Blue, following several 'releases' of music in 2012.
Introduction by Adam YoungEdit
'Port Blue' is music that can be heard playing in elevators, hotel lobbies, airports, museums and restaurants inside my head. It is the soundtrack to my dreams. If I wrote music for movies, this is what my film scores would sound like. Much of the aesthetic of Port Blue is not what lies in the recordings but rather what is extracted from them...Dreamscapes. No vocals.
In my opinion, there is a huge lack of imaginative, unconventional music being created by artists today and what little there is, goes widely unappreciated by the masses. 'Port Blue' is my attempt at re-creating the music I want to hear and the emotions I want to feel.
I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoyed creating it. If by chance you ever feel as though you’ve come to know these songs, please consider yourself a friend because in a manner of speaking, you know me. This music is my heart and soul. This is who I am.
