The Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) returns this year with its annual pre-festival The O.P.E.N.
Amongst the 38 shows planned for The O.P.E.N. and 17 shows for the main SIFA programme, one exhibition that caught our eye (being a music website and all) would be Spectres. Much like last year's Club Malam, this audio-visual installation meets live music performance should prove to be a treat for music fans.
Open from 5 to 8 July, the immersive project comes from the brilliant mind of artist, composer, and sound designer, Zai Tang.
Created with by reprocessing his archive of field recordings in local natural habitats using digital imaging and sound visualization techniques - these disfigured sound recordings presents the audience with a "sonorous vision of a desolate horizon".
By night, the space will turn into a live concert interpretation of Zai Tang's work entitled Spectres LIVE. This two-hour session of improvised, experimental music features Zai Taing engaging in "sonic dialogue" with nine experimental musicians from Singapore on the theme of disappearance.
Taking place from 6 to 8 July, Spectres LIVE will involve some pretty prominent names over these three evenings, including Bani Haykal, Cheryl Ong, Dennis Tan, Dharma, Fuzz Lee, Natalie Alexandra, Shark Fung, Wu Jun Han and Yuen Chee Wai.
