Sounding Now is a festival of contemporary music that brings together divergent contemporary practices with the goal of connecting people from different artistic communities in order to explore the ways their shared interests intersect.

Presented by the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, the festival brings together contemporary music of different approaches – concert music, installation, electronics, and improvisation.

This year’s Sounding Now Festival takes place from 17-19 April 2020 at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.

Special guests are percussionist Steven Schick, and Swiss-based piano quartet Mondrian Ensemble. Singapore-based contemporary music ensembles OpusNovus and Wu Xian will perform, alongside top experimental music improvisers from Singapore. Additionally, percussion students from YST; Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Shah Alam; and Western Australian Academy of the Performing Arts (WAAPA) will perform alongside Mario Choo, Max Riefer, and Tim White.
