Greetings EC readers!
Here is a bit of video documentation from my recent performance with Lorne Shapiro and Neil Wiernik:
Most enjoyable! I wish they had gigs like that over here.
Thanks, much appreciated! What part of Indonesia are you in?
I'm in Batam, a small industrial island, right under Singapore(my escape-to country for when I get fed up with Indonesia)
Well, I know Jakarta and Yogyakarta have punk and noise scenes and a small amount of more improvised and experimental music. There's a pretty good documentary called "Bising: Noise & Experimental Music in Indonesia" which I've seen. Good interview with the filmmakers here - https://noisey.vice.com/en_us/article/rze3k9/indonesias-insane-noise-scene. I don't know about Batam but Singapore definitely has stuff going on. Here's an academic paper on Experimental Music in Singapore by a musician and event organizer (I skimmed it and recognize some names) - https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/284072/284073
Batam has Punk & Hardcore and that's kinda all they have or maybe I am missing it. If I look at the Batam Bandcamp-page, I have a negative/angry impression.
