Sembang Soda is a monthly music initiative by Daily Seni and TAPAUtv , where we talk to local and regional musicians and artistes and explore a little bit of their creative process and at the same time, get to know them as well. Occasionally, we’d have acoustic, chill out sessions for your listening pleasures. This week, we chill with the pop rock radio-friendly musical group, Paperplane Pursuit. Enjoy!
A large part of media is linear – music, film, books. There is a point A that will always go to point B. No matter how many times you watch a film or listen to a song its form does not change. Ola Bola will always end the same way. That bassline from your favourite EDM song will always drop at the same exact time. Interpretations might differ, emotions might fluctuate – but the medium remains static. Thus, by giving power to its audience to choose the chapters, Ngelamun is a game-changer.
A fitting usage of the universal language of zombies as a vehicle for a uniquely Malaysian social commentary.
