PANGGUNG is a project exploring sounds and architecture of the Malay world – those that are lost, those still standing strong today and those that are speculations for the future. Through this, the project will deconstruct, construct, and reconstruct traditional and contemporary Malay music, sounds of the Malay world, built and natural structures, and urban and organic architecture of the Malay world. The project title is borrowed from the Malay word for stage, as it used in the performing arts world and from the term, Rumah Panggung or stage house, which is a type of Malay house which are raised on stilts. In this instance, the worlds of sound and architecture collide on stage while also creating a stage.
