The Glass is a camera lens through which four film-makers from local production house - birdmandog, document the faces, places, the past, and life today in Singapore. Four original art videos will be set to a live performance of "Singapore Seasons", a conceptual suite commissioned by re: mix from four local composers, Denise Lee, Derek Lim, Chen Zhangyi and Dr Kelly Tang. It will take us on a musical journey through the four seasons of life in the city. From the myriad of faces that make up our nation, to the harmony between our modern structures and nature, to places that evoke a feeling of nostalgia, to the everyday scenes of Singapore seen through the window of a taxi - a poetic take on life in Singapore. But more than anything, the spirit of the videos played in harmony with the music will show that Singapore is more than just our home but a place that we all have a stake in - the garden city that grows together and because of her people.

The Glass is also Philip Glass, an American composer who wrote another conceptual work - The American Four Seasons. re: mix invites its audience to listen and look through two contrasting lenses for a unique focus on Singapore.
