December 29 - December 31
New grounds, new sounds : an experimental audiovisual showcase.
The Malay word rata means ‘flat’ or ‘even’, and the RATA Orkestra creates new aural topographies by gathering diverse local and international musicians to experiment with collaborative compositions, break old boundaries and new grounds across the traditional, the experimental, and the popular, and create a transcultural ambient soundscape of harmonious interplays and poignant discordances.
A production two years in the making, RATA also features multimedia design. Audience members will move around the performance space to experience the visuals and sounds from various corners.
A programme that is a part of In New Light – A Season of Commissions, in celebration of Esplanade’s 20th anniversary.
In English, 1 hour, 10 minutes, no intermission.
