The first SGMUSO fundraiser festival will take place on 5 January 2019 at *SCAPE The Ground Theatre. Profits from The Outer Limits will be channeled into operational costs, skills and development programmes such as weekend consulting sessions, workshops and networking sessions, as well as organisational activities such as Music Export of Singapore artists to markets beyond Singapore.
Festival goers may expect three exciting segments – Up and Coming, Comeback Bands & The Light Show. In Up and Coming, emerging musicians YAØ and Houg will showcase their material. SGMUSO believes it is of utmost importance that these up and coming acts are offered an opportunity to play on a professional stage, and form networks with industry people to nurture their musical endeavours.
Comeback Bands pays homage to the pioneers of the scene and the evolution of local music. Alternative/pop-rock quintet West Grand Boulevard and post-hardcore band A Vacant Affair will reunite with their supporters while treating new listeners to a taste of early 2000s Singapore-made music.
The final segment, The Light Show is a full-fledged visual and aural experience with headlining artists Linying, Caracal and Sezairi. Their performances will be met with 3D installation structures, projection mapping and live visuals by LiteWerkz. Through cross-collaboration between art forms, SGMUSO hopes to encourage experimentation and expand the boundaries of live music production.
Hosting the event will be our very own Inch Chua and Tim De Cotta.
