An Alternative Ensemble is a response to the dynamic music landscape in Singapore. AAE represents a palate within, and also an extension of, musical forms found locally. AAE is an experimental collective of musicians and visual artists, performing music written by Bani Haykal, following his recent developments on alternative music + narrative systems. All music performed is part composed and part improvised.

In this series of Tribal Gathering of Tongue Tasters, AAE reflects and expresses the complexity of urban living, the struggles and comfort experienced as inhabitants of this city. Throughout the performance, the audience and performers will interact through short discussions to better communicate the ideas of this experiment.

AAE presents the following performers:

Cheryl Ong (A Bigger Bang)
Matin Fellani
Misha’al (The Psalms)
Siraaj Anwar (b-quartet / mux / Page)
Yeong Shen (Snou)

With visuals by:

Jun (video projections)
