In this boundary pushing event, titled “Aurora”, the Young KL Singers (YKLS) show choir will be exploring the music of Björk, the multi-hyphenate Icelandic artist. The Aurora tribute celebrates the diversity of Björk’s music across the years.
Paying homage to Björk’s infusion of visual and sensory elements into her work, it will be creative, experimental and eclectic, topped off with YKLS’ signature quirkiness. Audience members will be placed right into the mix of the performance, giving them an intimate and entirely unique way of experiencing choral singing.
The members of YKLS have developed their own unique arrangements of Björk’s music, experimenting with percussion, acapella, music processing and even choreography. Furthermore, this production will feature visual projection designs by the students of Saito University College, one of the most reputable design colleges in Malaysia.
The YKLS show choir, directed by Ian Chow, and Mak Chi Hoe (who is also the Music Director), will be the first choir in Malaysia to stage a production of this nature.
Whether you are a fan of this visionary artist, or someone new to her music, Aurora promises a fresh, and innovative experience that will excite your senses.
