The Working Processes of Artists: Alan Choo

Alan Choo is a Singaporean violinist and the artistic director of Red Dot Baroque, a group of Singaporean musicians promoting baroque music here.

In this video, Alan Choo shares with viewers his passion for baroque music, in all its glory and his ambitions for Red Dot Baroque, within Singaporean music culture. He also touches on his introduction to the world of Baroque which began when he was in the United States.

This video was directed and conceptualised by LASALLE students Natalie Ling and Eve Tan. “Eve and I have a love for classical music, so choosing to focus on baroque music in this project just seemed like the perfect fit. When choosing artists to feature, Alan Choo and the Red Dot Baroque were an obvious choice. Apart from creating wonderful music, Red Dot Baroque is changing the way Singaporeans think and feel about baroque music through innovation and passion,” said Natalie.

Each year, 1st year students in LASALLE College of the Arts Singapore’s BA in Arts Management program embark on a research and documentation project as part of their History and Contextual Studies module. Between January and April 2022, teams of students interview an artists or arts group each, to better understand an aspect of their practice, and to produce the result of the interview in the form of a video. The students are given creative freedom in how they executed the brief and shoot and edit their videos. Five of the best videos are published on ArtsEquator.

This interview with Alan Choo is  part of a series of video projects in 2022 by BA Arts Management students of LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. For past videos in this series, click here.
