One set of lyrics, two suites of songs. Listen to how the same words by poet Felix Cheong can inspire singer-songwriter Ng Sze Min accompanied by musician Pan Zai'En, and musician Jasmin Patel accompanied by singer Edward Cheang, to come up with different pieces of music.
Ng Sze Min
Using music and sound, Sze Min creates experiences at a personal level. She has improvised by singing poetry on the spot in public spaces, and experimented with her concept of a ‘paper orchestra’ with a 1000 strong crowd. Her installation, Six States of Love, was a complete aural immersion experience for single participants. As the Creative Audio Producer at Artwave Studio, she collaborates across theatre, film, and literary works to re-envision audience engagement through meaningful design. Her works have been featured in festivals across Singapore, Australia, USA, and UK.
