NUS Electronic Music Lab
The NUS Electronic Music Lab (EML) was established in 1985 to offer students an opportunity to use some of the latest electronic music technology.
The aims of EML are to create, perform and record both original and innovative electronic music. These range from experimental electronic music to synthesiser pop; from ambient and underground rave to trance, breakbeat, drum and bass; from hip-hop to avant garde.
Their annual concerts at the NUS Arts Festival have provided a platform to showcase original compositions synergising with various themes - highlighting the members' versatile talents. The compositions are often accompanied with unique visuals created by the EML members.
Surrounded by a well decked out MIDI laboratory, a small but well-equipped recording studio, and an outdoor sound reinforcement system, EML is made up of two main sections: (a) the performing/composing division dedicated to composing and premiering new tracks and (b) the recording/sound reinforcement division accountable for all studio recordings and the setting up of sound system for EML performances.
In addition to taking up in numerous music seminars and workshops, members of the NUS Electronic Music Lab have had an opportunities to present their works at events such as:
- Soundscape Installation at University Cultural Foyer
- ExxonMobil Campus Concerts
- Hong Kong City Festival 2006 at Hong Kong Fringe Club
- 41st Southeast Asia Ministers of Education Organisation
- Music Performances at Esplanade
- House at NUS Museums
- Performance at Opening of Circle Line at Bishan MRT
