Azurah Jan Che Onn Azhar
Diploma in Sonic Arts
Azurah and her Diploma in Sonic Arts classmates worked with KORG and City Music, renowned in the music world to create Singapore’s very own keyboard. Currently in the market, the keyboard has built-in instrument patches and musical styles that define music and culture of three ethnic groups in Singapore – Chinese, Malay and Indian.
“The best part of the FYP (Final-Year Project) is having hands-on experiences with so many rare instruments and learning from the musicians themselves! We had to apply our knowledge gained from class to our FYP. We learnt sound treatment; how to "clean" it up to prepare it for the next stage of processing, and how to work with each other, as working with classmates is a daily part of RP lessons.”
