Non Breaking Space

BY Anise (SG) x Brandon Tay (SG)

A hybrid digital art exhibition and EP release by musician and artist Anise, non-breaking space involves a stellar cast of collaborators including Brandon Tay, Mervin Wong, Sonia Kwek and Amanda Lee Koe. The artwork features music tracks from Anise that have never been heard before, created in tandem with five original illustrations, in an immersive and interactive visual experience crafted by Tay.

non-breaking space explores the othering of nature from humanity and the rituals and pathways back. Taking the shape of five music tracks within an experimental digital space, the artwork brings the audience on an auditory journey from dark electronica and glitchy beats, meandering choral glissandos and sparse rhythms, to raw emotive performances. Beginning with the apocalypse and ending with an ode to decomposition and a return to love, each piece unravels a sprawling visual landscape and invites the audience to sojourn within themselves.

"The landscapes that accompany each track interpret the evocative imagery of the music, while allowing the visitor to freely navigate its spaces. Created with real-time game engine Unity, it repurposes game technology to create a way to experience music while exploring tensions that arise when interactivity is introduced to performance in a virtual context."  – Brandon Tay

"The seeing of nature as essentially other from ourselves and our bodies as altered patterns of human behaviour have led us to develop rituals that run counter to ecology and ontology. Humanity and nature are not separate; from the bionts in our eyes to the mitochondria in our bodies, we are all nature. A non-breaking space, there is no between."  – Anise
