Creative Nights opened with music and fine art enthusiasts flocking to the Ayala Museum last Friday (02/08) to witness the collaboration of visual artist and flutist Gus Albor and Filipino producer-beatmaker CRWN before their very eyes.
CRWN warmed up the crowd with tracks from his 2018 beat tape Orchid, while the audience swayed to his tunes with Barik Supremo Lambanog at hand. Other attendees sat at the Creative Station to create their own artistic collaborations with their friends and loved ones. Albor subsequently took the stage, which was mounted in partnership between Ayala Museum and Bandwagon Philippines, with his flute and jammed with famed guitarist Kowboy Santos and percussionist Wam Molina. His exhibit Territory, which features a collection of works from 1969 - 2018, was then opened for viewing, behind the stage and the third floor of the museum.
