A Little Night Music: Glimmer
2 Dec 2019 / Temenggong 18/20
WITH EFFECT FROM 1 SEPT 2020, TEMENGGONG 18/20 IS NOW KNOWN AS HILLSIDE1820.
We spent a cold December night immersed in a performance and exhibition by Singapore-based violist and artist Christoven Tan. Glimmer aims to expand the definition of listening and explored how listeners adapt themselves to different ways of music production. The artworks featured are a series called Signs, Games and Messages by Christoven as a response to Hungarian composer and pianist Gyorgy Kurtag’s work of same name. These artworks served as a stimuli for the music performance.
