Sing Lit Sounds: A Discord Disco
Don’t miss this complete auditory and textual experience that pays homage to three of Singapore's official languages, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil. Explore primordial music tracks produced exclusively by musicians, .gif, Fauxe and Mantravine, that were produced exclusively for the #BuySingLit2020 movement.
Join the jam-packed party filled with readings, an open-mic for all languages, an all-night disco and even AMAs (Ask-Me-Anything) with the musicians as they share the inspirations behind their tracks. It’s a full-on party experience right in the comfort of your home!
Free upon registration via Peatix
The first 60 people to register by 25 September will receive a $10 #BuySingLit e-voucher.
Limited Edition Fun Pack:
$8 (for one); $24 (for a pack of four)
Each group of 4 will be provided with their own private group channel in Discord during the party.
Each fun pack consists of party decorations and dance gear (like glow sticks) to help you get in the disco mood.
About the Musicians
Known for their dark beats and haunting vocals, electronic duo .gif has graced stages all over the world with their gritty, immersive soundscapes. The band debuted in 2013 with the EP saudade, followed by their first LP, soma, in 2015. Come 2020, the pair has released their much-awaited followup, HAIL NOTHING.
In their writing, the pair often draw from literature, theatre and film. Their diverse practice and multidisciplinary collaborations have taken them from Sundance Film Festival in Utah to the Golden Melody Awards 金曲奖 in Taiwan; from writing their own genre-bending theatre production for the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival to setting up sound art installations in London.

Having spent the last 6 years of his life dedicating to his craft, Fauxe continuously strives to push the boundaries of his own musical endeavours. Pushing the format of “Freeform” music, his ideas stream from genres to feelings to colours and sounds. You will never know what to expect from him.
Fauxe leaves no sound unturned. It’s not that he does it all – it’sthat he does it all. The prodigiousness of his output – which can handily be called ‘music’ – is an emanation of the fact that he is not concerned with the flavour/tenor of the day but of how the abstractions history and future mingle, carouse, cavort and interrogate each other in the listener’s ear.

Mantravine /ˈmæntrəvaɪn/ origin:Universal
A highly conscious and ever-evolving organism composed of interchangeable musical parts; electronic pangs and pings, poetry, mantra and healing song, banging brass-lines and sweet-stringed carnatic guitar. Its psychedelic sound has reached audiences at festivals like Luminate & Twisted Frequency (New Zealand), Atman (Sri Lanka), Phoenix (Hawaii), Gaggalacka (Germany), Nataraja (France), One Music Camp (Japan), F1, Neon Lights (Singapore) and many more. Mantravine continues to defy genre with a variety of techniques like looping, improvisation, audience participation and unexpected combinations of style and frequency. It continues to create new definitions for itself as it grows in further cosmic directions.
