Live Music Scoring to Outdoor Projection: Magnum Photos, Aik Beng Chia and Mindy Tan and musicians from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts.

In conjunction with Magnum Photos’ 70th Anniversary, and a special collaboration with YAMAHA Singapore and Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts School of Music, young Singaporean composer Lim Han Quan and percussionist Kevin Tan performs a live scoring with the company of projections of the celebrated Magnum Photos and inspiring Singaporean photographers, Aik Beng Chia and Mindy Tan.

Feast your eyes and ears on iconic photographs by Steve McCurry, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Martin Parr and Hiroji Kubota. The quasi-improvisatory music is a reaction to the emotions evoked by the images along such themes as monotony, nostalgia, urban life and loneliness, freedom, love and celebrations.
