Another interesting electronic music festival is being held in Singapore:
Since January 2007, C.H.O.P.P.A. has been the only regular improvised music series in Singapore presenting monthly concerts showcasing the underbelly of the Singapore and regional music scenes and giving a forum for sound artists and musicians to present their work.
C.H.O.P.P.A. FESTIVAL 08 will mark 1 year of operations for the C.H.O.P.P.A. series that has been curated by Tim O’Dwyer and Darren Moore who are both originally from Australia and are current lecturers in Jazz and Pop music at LASALLE College of the Arts.
C.H.O.P.P.A. Improvised Music Festival will be truly international in 2008 bringing together 20 musicians from Japan, Malaysia, Sweden, Australia and Singapore featuring noise, electro-acoustic, lap-top, interactive sound art, free jazz and kraut rock.
The festival will run over two consecutive nights from Friday the 25th to Saturday the 26th of January at LASALLE College of the Arts with festival after-parties on each night featuring guest DJ’s around the corner upstairs at Blu Jaz in Bali Lane.
