Sandy Tan, the founder of Sound & Canvas, delivering her opening remarks
Have you visited Sound & Canvas lately? It was launched earlier recently at Setia Kenangan II, Kiulap, above Games & Latte. It’s managed by Sandy Tan who has the desire and passion for a creative community, devoted to experiment art in Brunei Darussalam. Her new studio aims at establishing creativity merging original music with various forms of arts.
Sound & Canvas (@soundncanvas) collaborated with Other Half Studio (@otherhalfstudio) for the theme “Can you keep a secret?”, an immersive Audio-Visual Exhibit. It is also supported by @happypetalsnco, Bloom Project Co. (@bloomprojectco) and Piccolo Cafe (@piccolocafebn). The Audio-Visual Exhibit will be ongoing until 31st December and it opens from Thursday to Sunday from 7:30pm to 11:00pm.
There is section of beautifully crafted paper petals on the wall where guests can write and post their comments or love notes for Sandy and her new studio.
So far the response has been encouraging and it was good to see the youth turning up for the Audio-Visual Exhibit and beginning to appreciate the artistic value of creative arts merging with original music.
This could be a new space for local artists and musicians to work together in promoting arts and music in Brunei Darussalam. Hence the space will be continually reconfigured throughout the year to host various exhibits and showcases.
In terms of services, Sound & Canvas provides advertising soundtracks, film/short film/tv/podcast soundtrack (that caught my eye huhu) and sounds/music for apps and games.
At Sound & Canvas, Sandy hopes to connect with musicians, artists, performers and independent makers who share a passion for creating original, ambitious work.
She holds BA of Communications (Hons.) from RMIT University Melbourne and BA of Music (Composition & Production) from the Australian Institute of Music Sydney. Sandy’s creative practice usually involves electro-acoustic instrumentations and manipulating found sounds. Her work is inspired by a curiosity for how sound and music influence our social experiences, as well as parallels drawn between sound and other art forms. Sandy has learned that anyone can create and showcase art. Talent is made valid with practice.
