Critical Spirituality Series - 

Ecstatic Initiations: Sound Through Shamanism

OpensCriticalBanner.png

By Opens

Thursday, 5 October 2023, 7.30pm

Sound is an essential element of the shamanisms practiced in indigenous cultures around the world, and continues to be an indispensable tool for neo-shamanic practitioners today. For the shaman, sonic techniques and technologies can open a multitude of dimensions within the self and the other, helping practitioners access altered states of consciousness, facilitate methods of healing and divination, and enable translocal and interspecies forms of communication. 

In this workshop-presentation, Arunditha Emmanuel discussed the role of sound in shamanism and its possible intersections with contemporary music-making and creative processes. The evening concluded with an intuitive sound performance-demonstration by Arunditha and collaborating artist-musician Anise.

Strange Weather w/ Elena Colombi (Osàre! editions)

& ANTARMUKA (Live)

imgonline-com-ua-FrameBlurred-yRnnqE75rPlCV.jpg

By Strange Weather

Saturday, 26 August 2023, 7.30pm

Following a string of outstanding regional bookings, Strange Weather moved up a gear with their headliners - Osàre! Editions label boss Elena Colombi and Antarmuka.

 

Both Colombi and Osàre! (which translates to 'daring’ or ‘bold’ in Italian) have become synonymous with future-facing music shot through with forward-thinking experimentation and abandon, and imbued with a sense of complete freedom, transcending expectations of time or genre.

 

Antarmuka was a live act helmed by Syafiq Halid, an electronic musician and percussionist; and Rosemainy Buang, a gamelan musician and composer. 

 

The night was supported by the usual suspects - Strange Weather residents Aalely, Kindergarchy, Yadin Moha and Yetpet.

Bussy Temple, T:>Works’ newest Per°Form CoThink Lab Fellow presents Father’s Womb. A rave with an all queer and gender non-conforming lineup, it wishes to celebrate those who do not find themselves settled on a single identity this pride season.

Rave spaces often lack the opportunity for gathering and encounter before the music begins. Prior to the party, Father’s Womb invited attendees to The Sanctuary, an immersive space of togetherness for queer ravers to rest, share, and explore queer kinship and rave intimacies.

#Metazomia: Brian Gothong Tan In Conversation With Michael Lee

Metazomia Talk

Presented by T:>Works

Saturday, 14 Jan 2023, 4.30pm
 

The idea of generative art spawned off the backs of AI has attracted controversy of late. Yet, artists are exploring AI as tools for their artistic work. Brian Gothong Tan, known for his works in theatre, film and large-scale outdoor multi-media installations such as “Tropical Traumas” for the Singapore International Festival of Arts (2016) has done exactly that. For #Metazomia, his recent work for T:>Works Artistic Atelier, he created images entirely with AI. In the process, he generated close to 1000 images of which less than 100 images are specifically curated for the eventual show, now on at 72-13. Join Brian in conversation artist Michael Lee as they discuss the fascination and challenge with generative art and how AI is harnessed in #Metazomia.
