Sonic artist and composer Chong Li-Chuan shares how he uses sound and music to complement and elevate performances, from theatre to site-specific works, dance and movement. This video is conceptualised and directed by LASALLE students Kim Juwon, Nadiah Syahirah and Nurfalah Sha’aban, who chose to interview Chong Li-Chuan “due to his extensive experience and contribution in music composing and sound designing for many local theatre plays”. The video can also be viewed on YouTube.
Between February to April 2020, BA in Arts Management students from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore, embarked on an artist documentation project as part of their module History & Contextual Studies: materials, methods, history. The first-year students were tasked with interviewing an artist to better understand an aspect of their practice – their processes and influences, issues they were interested in exploring through their artmaking – and to produce the result of the interview in the form of a video.
The students were given brief parameters for the project but creative freedom in how they executed the brief and shot and edited their videos. They were also allowed to select any artist to interview. Some immediately gravitated to an artist they admired, some selected from within their own artistic communities, while others chose artists they were unfamiliar with or simply curious about. Six of the best videos will be shown in partnership with ArtsEquator.
This interview with Chong Li-Chuan is part of a video project by BA Arts Management students of LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. For past videos in this series, click here.
