Here’s yet another installment of Sound of X / Sound of Singapore, a project helmed by Goethe-Institut Singapore.

We are thrilled to see one of the most anticipated music-slash-visual acts in the art circuit as of late, NADA (comprised of Safuan Johari and Rizman Putra) in collaboration with Brandon Tay, interpret Singapore Sound through the narratives of the Monkey Man and the Orang Bunian (invisible people) — a rather harsh yet accurate personification of the other. The trio have successfully set the stage where nostalgia meets mysticism, giving us a glimpse of the country’s mythological past that was inadvertently lost in our quest for progress.
