Singapore, September 24th, 2016 — Audio-Technica is proud to be the official microphone and prize sponsor for the Gamechangers: Singapore, organised by the Timbre Music Academy. This is the first time Audio-Technica is sponsoring Gamechangers: Singapore, a 3 hours music seminar featuring the Swaggernautz mestro Tat Tong and Jovany, sharing their experience on how to break into any music market in the world. The objective of this music seminar is to provide a platform for participants to network and learn the characteristics of each music industry around the region.
During the 3 hours sharing session, both Jovany and Tat Tong enthralled the participants with their experiences, including the rejections they had to endure before finding success internationally. Besides the Swaggernautz, many renowned world music composers Jonathan Wong and Singapore composer, Manfred Lim (also known as MYRNE) also shared his creative journey from a DJ to composing music around the world.
Indeed, Tat Tong from the Swaggernautz reflected, “These events are - above all - about all of us coming together as a music community, no matter what our individual levels of "success" are or where we are on our journeys. Being part of moments like this, and seeing that the participants had a meaningful and thought-provoking experience, makes all the hard work so, so worth it!”
Danny Loong, Chief Creative Director of Timbre Group also affirmed that the workshop was a success “mainly due to the variety and wide scope of experience from the panelists, Tat and Jovany. This gives a full bodied spectrum of topics which made for a vibrant, candid and honest discussion. Timbre Music Academy is proud to co-present our second Gamechangers and look forward to the next one and build on its positive momentum.”
Gamechangers: Singapore event is yet another example of Audio-Technica’s unwavering support of the local music industry since 2012 and an acknowledgement the efforts of the unsung heroes behind the music.
Danny Loong summed it up best when he commented, “Audio Technica has been the official microphone for Timbre Group and their support for Gamechangers enhances the good partnership and relationship with the timbre brand. Audio Technica and their endorsees really helped in the marketing of the event and contributed to the lively discussion. We are thankful for their support yet again and look forward to more meaningful and productive partnership.”
