Compass tells the story of this child finding his way home, as his family holds on to the hope that one day he shall return."

Amino Acid Orchestra - 29 Oct 2016

Amino Acid Orchestra

Zai Kuning + Andy Chia + Andy Yang

29th October, 2016

Aliwal Arts Centre
28 Aliwal Street
Singapore 199918

Music Studio 1

Tickets at $20 (at the door)

Initiated by multi disciplinary artist Zai Kuning. Amino Acid Orchestra made its debut with Zai
together with musicians, Fuzz Lee and Shark Fung. Rejecting the idea of the conventional stage
show. The trio started making sounds from conventional musical instruments to found objects with
the intention of performing and creating soundscapes and exploring spaces.

Zai is currently back in Singapore with a different direction for Amino Acid Orchestra after residing
in Johor for the past 3 years. As Zai has been playing entirely solo on guitar, percussions and
vocals for most of his songs, those familiar with Zai’s music will be in for an entire different
experience as the songs take on new shapes and forms.

For this new incarnation of Amino Acid Orchestra, Zai will embark on a new journey together with
musicians, Andy Chia (wind instruments) and Andy Yang (percussions) exploring ideas deeply
rooted in this Archipelago.
Hope everyone will be able to experience Amino Acid Orchestra once again in this self funded
performance in an intimate and cozy living room setting. ‘Nothing special nor festive.’’
