Transcendence – The Legend of Ryu Wuri
15 Jul 2018, 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
An assassin with a dark past. A vicious king and his obsession with power. An epic love saga about a prince and a warrior princess.
Electric guitar virtuoso Addy Cradle takes you on a fantasy adventure like no other—through a glorious instrumental rock soundtrack set to stories brought to life by animation and visual art.
Written, composed, arranged and produced by Addy under his own record label, Eden Inc Ltd, his latest album, Transcendence – Legend of Ryu Wuri, provides the musical backdrop to an anthology of dark tales written by Addy himself, inspired by Indonesian folklore. Mostly instrumental, each track opens a chapter of the stories. The album is the first of three volumes and features a fusion of rock and traditional music from China, Indonesia, Japan and India.
Known for his exceptional proficiency with the instrument, the award-winning guitarist made his mark in Singapore’s Malay music scene in the ’90s as a member of rock bands Teacher’s Pet and Cradle, and most recently, Jive Talkin’. On his own, he has picked up awards and accolades over the years, including Best New Solo Artiste and Best Album at Anugerah Planet Muzik, and Top Local Malay Pop Song at the COMPASS Awards.
For this concert, Addy has assembled a multidisciplinary team that includes visual artist Muhammad Izdi, who has drawn a series of comic strips brought to life by the motion graphics of video artist Wu Jun Han, as well as other talented musicians.
