2019 Telling Stories Performers present International Artistic Research Symposium.

As part of the symposium, K口U will present our program entitled <<Loss>>. The symposium is open to the public. With the rapid growth happening around the world and human being's hunger for more, often resulting in irreversible consequences. <<Loss>> is a production that explores various forms of loss that is affecting the very world we live in through dialogue and music.

The concept of loss has stood through the test of time and it has a unique definition for every individual, often defined by their own personal experience. Featuring music that examines what is left of a prosperous ancient civilization, a real life account of a war veteran, environmental destruction and ultimately, death. <<Loss>> aims to challenge each individual definition of the word and bring the audience on a journey to explore the spectrum of loss.

How can we address these issues? Are our individual efforts too little and too late for the impending doom?

New work for K口U by Daniel Yiau

"Narratives—whether historical, political, or musical; whether fact or fiction—are inextricably bound to the ways we experience the world, and the art that translates these experiences.

In the decade since we began hosting the triennial Performers(‘) Present symposium, artistic research has been undergoing rapid and ground-shifting transformations, with the performer’s voice becoming ever more present. As with our previous symposia, Telling Stories seeks to address and evolve the kaleidoscopic issues facing 21st-century performers, as they reflect on their practice in the context of significant shifts in politics, communications and technology, and performance practice.

Come join us and the artistic research community at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music as we reflect on the power of music narratives and celebrate their narrators in Performers(‘) Present 2019: Telling Stories." - taken from Yong Siew Toh's website.

Unanimously formed in 2019 upon completing their music endeavours in Europe, K口U Musik aims to revolutionise the average concert-going experience. The one-of-a-kind, Singapore-based mixed instrument ensemble, refuses to be confined by tradition. Instead, K口U innovates by engaging multiple senses of the audience, allowing one to fully immerse the mind in the production.

Our name, K口U/口 is a literary translation of the word 'mouth' in Mandarin. K口U is one of the most organic form of expression on the human body. Provocative in nature and capable of amplifying controversial ideas, K口U is an amplification of our personal ethos expressed provocatively.
