Disregarding traditional notions of musical conventions and specific genres, B-quartet has been wowing audiences of the local music scene with their charismatic live performances. The band was nominated for the title of Best Singapore Band in the 2008 Singapore Music Awards and is known for its strangely haunting music that blends progressive rock and metal with jazz and funk, topped off with exquisite vocal harmonies and poetic songwriting.
Now join them in another live set which promises more of their signature brand of visceral playing, one which would surely appeal to both alternative rock fans as well as lovers of original music.
Third Mind Experience is like being submerged in an isolation tank -- it's enveloping,subverting the senses with surreal visions we'd swear were our own, cleverly jarring and disorienting consciousness beyond any footing in reality.
These are artists who feel the fires of inspiration to create sound art or music that is original, emotional and epic whether it is ambient soundscapes, rock based music, drone or anything else under the sun. Music that crosses boundaries while celebrating expression rather than glamour.
Third Mind refers to a writing style (and eventually cinematic style), popularized by William Burroughs, which involves combining and re-arranging unrelated texts or film scenes to form new narratives and often-surreal images. It's a metaphor for different bands doing their own thing but having a similar ideology or dedication to creating sound art that ties to them to the larger picture.
The series of gigs will cover a broad a range of sound art as possible. With the belief that if it comes from inside you, it is automatically valid and that music is never wrong, this is the Third Mind Experience. Come join us this April the 10th at Blackhole. It starts at 7pm.
