Although music is primarily a sonic experience, often times, our first impression of a musician is actually visual. Whether through album art or gig posters, design has always played a key role in our consumption of sound.
On January 20th, the programme aims to further explore the relationship between design and music through a dialogue featuring some of Singapore most prominent artists. Discover how integral artwork can be in the one's experience of music, and learn how it can help to enhance the discovery experience to remain relevant and appeal to consumers.
The conversation will revolve around this particular culture of design and its difficult task of communicating the spirit of the music it represents. Attendees will hear firsthand from local designers like Little Ong (fFurious), Kiat (Syndicate), Marc Gabriel Loh and Izyanti Asa'ari (both of Dunce) as they share their design philosophies behind the synergy of translating the artists’ music into design or an art form.
After the talk, there will also be a curated projection showcase that charts the evolutionary design of local albums and poster art, allowing attendees to better appreciate the different types of art styles utilized in the Singapore scene through the decades.
'Design For Music: Music that looks as good as it sounds' takes place on January 20 at the National Design Centre (Auditorium, Level 2) from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Admission is free by registration.
