A new interdiscplinary work by artists Ferry and Kamini Ramachandran.


O/AURAL WAVES is a vessel of stories, words and sounds.
A live storytelling, soundscaping and foley experience to transport audiences to worlds that came before, are present and go beyond our shores.

A pliable show format that shapes and shifts based on the stories and content that drives it, each edition of O/AURAL WAVES is an exploration into the essence of the human fabric as we know it. From culture to myth, history to beliefs.


O/AURAL WAVES: SPIRITED WORDS • 13 to 22 March 2020

TEXTURES at The Artshouse

From the ancient era to modern times, spirits, superstition and the supernatural have long been a part of the human narrative. As we explore the perceived differences between cultures and their predominant religions, the lines that separate them begin to blur.

What is it to believe versus our beliefs?

O/AURAL WAVES – SPIRITED WORDS delve into the works of Catherine Lim and Verena Tay, questioning our notions of religion, culture and spirituality.

This version consists of two aspects – A self-guided art installation which transforms into a live performance space on show dates.

O/AURAL WAVES  – Version.01 – Esplanade Exchange October 2019

O/AURAL WAVES • 1 to 3 October 2019

Esplanade Exchange @ The Concourse

Many Singaporeans know about Sang Nila Utama and his discovery of Singapore. But, who was he and where did he come from? Who was his father and his father’s father? Was he really the first of his family to land on the island?

This first edition of the work brings you on a visual and audio adventure across the seas, exploring our origins.

What does Singapore sound like or feel like to you?

Tasked with the theme of Migration based on Speak Cryptic’s visual art installation just behind the concourse stage, the artists drew back to the myths and legends of Sang Nila Utama and his grandfather Raja Suran from the Chola dynasty, exploring the notions of migration – the people that came before us and where the idea of being “foreign” holds so much weight to our identity and who we are as citizens on this island.
