PLAYFREELY 2015 + Giveaway

(from the press release)


Originally inspired by the programming of New York experimental music venue The Stone, Playfreely started out as a fortnightly initiative to foster regular sessions amongst musicians to create and play without inhibition. No fixed notions of what’s appropriate or appealing, no complicated concepts, no genre fixations, and most importantly, no judgement.

This two-day programme will feature two parts. Part 1, on 28 January, features the first ever concert in Singapore by experimental music quartet Far East Network (FEN), scoring live to previously unreleased short films by visual artist Charles Lim. Part 2 of Playfreely 2015 will feature an exciting new component, The Playfreely Ensemble, led by renowned Japanese composer and multi-instrumentalist, Otomo Yoshihide. Made up of musicians from as far off as France, regionally and Singapore, The Playfreely Ensemble musicians will work and explore ideas together for 2 days. Through open exchange of approaches, exploration and reworking of ideas, Playfreely encourages free expression and risk taking. Nothing is out of bounds. The final outcome is a live performance on 30 January, featuring a roster of wonderfully diverse musicians listed below.
