Voices: Before We Get Old is a documentary series by Viddsee. In Episode 2, musician and filmmaker Yee Chang Kang (The Ordinary People, Typewriter) recounts the history of alternative music in Singapore, and reflects on the significance of The Substation, Singapore’s first independent arts centre.
Songs In The Key Of Home
For those who missed the live stream, here’s the video on YouTube. Songs in The Key Of Home was a live stream series organised by Bani Rahman and The Basement Studio. TypeWriter performed an acoustic set as a trio (Chang Kang, Alan and Patrick) on 19 November 2020.
Hoping For a Better 2021
Here’s wishing everyone out there a happy 2021 and for those who celebrate the Lunar New Year, good health and prosperity to you! We couldn’t play any live shows last year and only did one live stream gig in 2020, which was a different type of experience and pretty good fun. We hope to finish up recording our EP by the middle of the year. Stay safe. More to come…
