Rethinking Music (again): Borders and Gaps

This performance is part of Performing Home

16 NOVEMBER, 6.30PM - 10PM

A few years ago, as part of The Substation's Associate Artist Research Programme, I presented a project entitled Rethinking Music which opened up and converted the gallery into a recording studio and a space for performances / discussions on music to take place. Returning to The Substation, which is an important space for music development in Singapore, I'm interested in opening up another round of enquiry to confront the borders and gaps that make up our relationship with music. This project is a set of discussions and performances of which everyone is invited to participate.
