What do a tissue box, a ukulele, a toilet roll, and a children’s xylophone have in common? Suiko Takahara (not her real name, by the way). The Selangor-born singer-songwriter fashions quirky sounds and rhythms out of anything she can get her hands on, and it doesn’t stop there.

Created eight years ago in a dusty room of an undisclosed college dormitory, The Venopian Solitude is Takahara’s labour of love and music project through which she gets to put on her experimental cap. The trilingual artist writes in Malay, English and Japanese, and released her debut eight-track album, Hikayat Perawan Majnun (Tales of a Lunatic Damsel), in 2014. She was nominated for Best Music Arrangement, Best Music Video and Best Album Recording at Malaysia's music industry awards, Anugerah Industri Muzik 2014.

This July, Takahara and her band meet Singapore electronic duo .gif in an evening of eclectic beats, synths and immersive vocals, ready to invade your head space with music that does more than kill time.
