WIP wiith Under The Tree


Venue: Level 1 Common Lounge

Date: 7 March 2013 (Thursday)

Time: 7-9.30pm


Project Information:

On 19 January 2013, 11 aspiring songwriters came together with one goal in mind: to produce an original music album that records the wonderful memories they shared in Tembusu College.

Under the Tree is a songwriting project for students in Tembusu College, National University of Singapore. Participants will undergo a semester-long songwriting course, conducted by industry experts, and produce their very own music album! The music album, inspired by the student's life in Tembusu College, will serve as an audio memory for both the students and the college.

We have so far completed half of the 8-weeks course and are ready to share our works-in-progress. In this seminar, the songwriters will share about our musical journey and inspirations for our composition. We will also perform our songs as-it-is at that moment, and gather comments from you all. We hope that the session will provide us with ideas and inspirations as we complete the last lap of songwriting, it is also an opportunity for us to engage everyone in the college as we produce our very first collection of audio memories.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
