One for the Indie Scene Fans

The Ipoh Music Symposium 2019 Journal entitled ‘Muzik Independen’ was recently launched at PORT, Ipoh. The 124-page book includes papers presented during the symposium as well as new writing and photos from the event and promises to be a relevant resource for local music lovers. It’s available at PORTDISTRO in Ipoh, or you can DM their official Twitter or Instagram page for more info.


Ilham Gallery’s virtual Tour

With the Gallery closed again due to the current CMCO, a virtual tour of their latest exhibition, ‘Bayangnya Itu Tenggelam Timbul’ has been launched. The exhibition “invites us to discover the different values and meanings that people have invested in the photographic image through the years, in an attempt to explore an alternative understanding of the complex modern history of photography.” Click on this link to launch the tour:
