Breaking free from standard time-signatures, Math
Rock came into its own with asymmetrical time
signatures of 7/8, 11/8 and 13/8. The result? — Pure
aural intoxication. Chaotic, melodic, but always
stimulating to the senses; the unique genre redefines
the angular relationship between time and space
in ultra-creative sounds. It is truly the sound of this
zeitgeist.

Heading the line-up is LITE (Japan), hailed as “one
of Japan’s top instrumental rock acts”. Founded in
2003, LITE has successfully toured the US, UK and
Asia with their brand of sonic artistry that combines
the precision and musicianship of Prog-Rock with the
emotionally charged cinematic compositions of art
rock, in a heavier, more modern package that they
describe as math rock.

The line-up features home-grown Singapore band
Forests, with their heady blend of math rock, pop
(and even emo) and grab a chance to catch our very
own NUS bands in rock heaven.
