PAPER MOON OVER KL: MURAKAMI AND JAZZ | FRIDAY 25 FEBRUARY 2022
Paper Moon: Jazz in the City brings together some of Malaysia’s finest musicians in two complementary concerts. The second, Murakami and Jazz, presents a unique tribute to one of Japan’s greatest cultural icons, Haruki Murakami. As one of the best-known and most critically acclaimed writers working today, Murakami himself has had a lifelong love affair with all kinds of music, and especially jazz. His writing constantly draws inspiration and quotes from his favourite musicians.
This unique multimedia concert combines three artistic elements: the narration of a specially written script based on Murakami’s words – from novels, short stories and essays – featuring Marina Tan and Gareth Richards as the two narrators; music directly referenced in Murakami’s texts and originals composed by Tay Cher Siang as a response to them, featuring WVC Jazz (AJ Popshuvit, Adriel Wong), Rizal Tony, Yow Weng Wai and singers Junji Delfino and Janet Lee; and a projected montage of images drawn from art and photography, including the work of leading Japanese artists.
By presenting the interplay of words and music and images – as in a three-dimensional conversation – this concert draws attention to a sometimes overlooked facet of Murakami’s literary output and showcases the creative response of Malaysian performing artists to a great writer.
