The Morse Project - II. Struggle
“The Morse Project” is a percussion quintet comprising 4 movements. Each movement utilises morse code, turning it into sources of musical ideas and tools of musical development. Written during the Covid-19 pandemic, the words inspiring each movement are Covid-19 based - Birdcage, Struggle, Adjustment, and New Normal. Despite this, the piece is not necessarily Covid-19 related but follows an emotional journey of anyone escaping and breaking through from a sense of entrapment. Movement 2: Struggle This movement features mostly mallet percussion, exploring the melodic qualities of a percussion ensemble. The morse code is embedded by the marimba playing in a chaconne-like manner, while the rest of the instruments illustrate a sense of struggle through a melancholic tune. Composed by KokJun Phang, featuring dancers Ng Jingwen and Amin Alifin. Video Production by The White Dojo and Audio engineer Brandon Wong. Made possible by the National Arts Council Singapore.
#SCOSoundbites #SCO音乐摘录 – Symphonic Floras《芬芳的交响》
#SCOSoundbites – Symphonic Floras Concert: The Rising Duo Date: 21 October 2021 Composed by Phang Kok Jun “If only flowers and trees could talk - imagine the stories they could tell” - inspired by this thought, the composer decides to tell the floras’ story in his own musical voice. This work was conceptualised through a series of flora-inspired imagery, and the listener may choose to visualise the piece as such. Composed by young Singaporean composer Phang Kok Jun, some key images in the work include: an opening image of a vast, pastoral sight; flowers and leaves dancing in the wind; a sudden and unexpected tropical thunderstorm turning everything into a messy landscape; the resilient floras regrowing back to its former, elegant state. If only flowers and trees could talk - they might tell you how they remain constant in our ever-changing landscape, show you their strength and resilience through the years, and share with you how after every storm and in every spring, they will blossom and bloom again. This music piece was premiered at the SNYCO 15th Anniversary Concert on 21 July 2018.
