In Each Hand A Cutlass - A Universe Made of Strings

In Each Hand A Cutlass - A Universe Made of Strings

The title track off IEHAC’s upcoming album. Quite a post-rockish piece considering they’ve been moving in a more prog direction. Don’t miss the album launch next Friday, 24th June at the Esplanade. Event flyer here.

bani haykal / narratives:

basically, in the next few months to come, i will be presenting several solo performances around town, primarily to share my developments in alternative music systems and narratives.

a little background:
presently i am conducting a study on alternative music systems, particularly one which reflects and expresses globalized Asia, if not just Singapore. in this study, my interest is in reinterpreting the already present ideas of music and reconstructing them to what i would deem a vocabulary which best represents the social / psychological climate here. my philosophy is that music, ultimately, is a subjective listening experience, comprising of sounds or no-sounds, organized or otherwise, encapsulated in a time frame, relevant to the individual listener. that by subjecting music to categorization is nothing more than a mere attempt at communicating the music made, but that in itself, has no definite value to the actual composition, only an idea.

The man is on a roll. Here are some dates:

narratives #1.3
The Esplanade Concourse
Wednesday, 4th May, 7pm

narratives #2
Night&Day Singapore
Thursday, 5th May, 8pm

narratives #2.2
The Esplanade Concourse
Monday, 9th May, 7pm

narratives #3
Blu Jaz Cafe, 3rd floor
Thursday, 12th May, 8pm

The ‘Silent’ Studio at library@esplanade
library@esplanade, Singapore’s premiere performing arts library, has unveiled a rehearsal studio (or jamming studio as it is more commonly known). This is the latest development in  the National Library Board’s expansion of performing arts services hosted in this  library.
Acoustic drums and electric instruments require the use of amplifiers to generate sounds. The ‘Silent’ Studio concept, however, minimises sound, thereby allowing the library to maintain an ideal environment for other patrons. The technology that makes this possible is the JamHub mixer, which channels all the sounds from the various electric instruments to the headphones of  the musicians. The sound generated can therefore be heard only by the musicians.
Although the library cannot ‘silence’ all sounds created in the rehearsal studio completely, the new technology we have employed will ensure that all jamming sessions proceed as quietly as possible.
By introducing the ‘Silent’ Studio, the library hopes to encourage a wider pool of musicians, especially young, budding musicians, to visit the library and use its facilities to hone their skills and express their creativity.
HOLY BATMAN THIS IS SICK

Calling everyone in Singapore who isn’t going for Jimmy Eat World

It’s okay, we’re going to have an even better time away from the alt rock kids tonight. Come to the Esplanade for some great Indonesian bands who are in town for the weekend.

L’Alphapha call themselves ambient indie pop. Despite the glaringly obvious Sigur Ros influence (you’ll know once you hear the first few notes of the piano), they manage to remain original and interesting on stage. I’ve got my lunch money set aside for their debut album… they’d better bring enough copies.

Themilo are an established shoegaze group. Expect fuzzy guitar and haunting vocals on top of modern indie/alt arrangement and drums.

Leonardo Ringo. I have no idea who this guy is, sorry.

Friday, April 1, 2011
7.30 – 8.15pm : L’alphalpha
8.45 – 9.30pm : Themilo
10.00 – 10.30pm: Leonardo
