A TAV Curator's Pick.

Singapore musician Alexius Cai, under his moniker of Piblokto, presents his latest release Imperfection.

Inspired by his newborn son, the album seeks to uncover the beauty of imperfections and explore the crevices of emotions often forgotten and abandoned. This show features fellow collaborators and good friends Sean Lam (Hanging Up The Moon), Victor Low (Affixen, Hanging Up The Moon), Andy Chia (SA() and an ensemble of string musicians.

Piblokto started in 2012 as an avenue to explore guitar textures and ambient sounds. Together with Leslie Low, Evan Tan, Andrew Lim and Joan Chew, Cai released the debut album Colourless Fields soon after. Now, after a three-year hiatus, Piblokto returns to the live performance stage.

Piblokto is having a concert at the Esplanade Recital Studio on 15 Jan 2017, Sun, 8pm. Tickets available here.

About Piblokto:

Piblokto is a solo project by Alexius Cai, recorded mostly at home over a span of two years, Colourless Fields is a reflection on the tenacity of human fortitude and the search for tranquility amidst the desolation and vastness of the Siberian tundra.

The album traces a physical epic journey from the Siberian wastelands towards the Indian plateau of placid abandonment. Inspired by the music of James Blackshaw, Cian Nugent, Nick Drake and Barn Owl, the album distillates the the essence of Arctic hysteria which is Piblokto.

Each of the seven track unravels with a guitar composition which is subsequently laced with a myriad of improvisations through ambient sounds, drones, guitars and violins. With the imaginations and mastery of Evan Tan, Leslie Low, Andrew Lim and Joan Chew, Colourless Fields dances to life akin to a flickering flame in the cold billowing desert night.
